Our Story

About Us

The look and feel of natural stone, but so much more durable and easier to maintain.

SilkSurface was born out of the fall from grace of Engineered Stone. With its extremely high silica content, Engineered Stone proved to be a killer (literally) for stone masons. But Australia loved that look and feel of natural stone.

By perfecting a manufacturing technique, SilkSurface creates the look and durability we want in our homes but uses safe materials to do so. A blend of bauxite (aluminium hydroxide) and a modified acrylic, each SilkSurface sheet is formed under 400 tons of pressure before being diamond polished to create its hard and durable surface.

While SilkSurface is tough, it is still very efficient for your installer to fabricate. It can be cut, sanded and polished exactly like timber. This means should you scratch or damage your benchtop, unlike natural stone, you can easily repair it in place. Our SilkSurface Care Kit has everything you need to polish your benchtop to its original shine.
