HIMACS By HIMACS

Type

Solid Surface

HIMACS is a solid surface that can be moulded into any shape.‎ It is widely used for architectural and interior applications, such as sculptural and high performance wall-cladding or kitchen, bathroom and furniture surfaces, in commercial, residential and public space projects.‎ It is composed of acrylic, natural minerals and pigments that come together to provide a smooth, non-porous and visually seamless surface which meets the highest standards for aesthetics, fabrication, functionality and hygiene.‎ HIMACS provides limitless possibilities for surfacing solutions and inspires creative minds from all over the world.‎ Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Karim Rashid and David Chipperfield, among others, have completed fabulous projects using HIMACS.‎ LX Hausys’ HIMACS uses a simple heating process to give three-dimensional thermoplastic forming capabilities, allows visually seamless designs, offers a virtually limitless range of colours and – for some shades - exhibits a special translucency when exposed to light.‎ Although HIMACS is almost as robust as stone, it can be worked in a similar way as wood: it can be sawn, routed, drilled or sanded.‎ HIMACS is manufactured using a new generation technology, the thermal cure.‎ The temperature reached during the manufacturing process sets HIMACS apart from other solid surfaces and creates a denser, even more homogeneous, sturdy, durable surface – with a better resistance and superior thermoforming performance.‎

HI-MACS® is the New Generation of solid surface.‎ It is composed of 70% natural stone powder derived from bauxite, 25% high quality acrylic resin and 5% natural pigments.‎ During the manufacturing process, HI-MACS® is heated to very high temperatures by means of an advanced firing heat treatment.‎ This procedure makes HI-MACS® different from other types of acrylic stone, giving it better uniformity and making it more resistant to shocks and UV rays.‎ HI-MACS® is available in around 100 different colours in various ranges; Solids, Granite, Sand, Pearl & Quartz, Volcanics, Lucent, Eden, Galaxy, Marmo and the Sparkle Collection (Key Lime, Kandy Pink, Kreemy Grey, Kold Silver e Kanada Violet) designed by Karim Rashid.‎

HI-MACS® OUTSTANDING FEATURES
HI-MACS® allows for visually seamless manipulation.‎ Smooth integration enables large areas without joints or edges as well as flush mounting of sinks or bowls.‎ Not only do objects made from this solid surface material appear to be works of art cast from a single mould, the material’s seamless manipulation and non-porous nature create surfaces which are extremely hygienic and easy-to-clean.‎ The seamless finish also allows for repair and replacement without a visible trace should any part of a HI-MACS® installation be damaged at any time.‎ HI-MACS® boasts a simple heating process and three dimensional thermoplastic forming capabilities.‎ This allows for greater forming flexibility compared with other conventional materials so that spectacular ideas can quickly take on a concrete shape.‎ No radius, shape or angle is impossible.‎ The logical conclusion: a material that moulds to your idea and designs – not the other way around.‎ Exactly how it should be.‎

UNLIMITED COLOUR SPECTRUM
Along with choice of material, colour selection is a crucial factor when it comes to high-quality design.‎ HI-MACS® offers a virtually limitless range of colours in all conceivable shades.‎ More are being added every year, no matter what colour you choose, HI-MACS® remains 100% homogeneous.‎

DRAMATIC TRANSLUCENCY
Certain colours and thicknesses of HI-MACS® exhibit a special translucency when exposed to light.‎ Various textures and patterns can be built into the material to intensify the HI-MACS® translucency effect.‎ Depending on the light source, pattern and design, spectacular cut-out effects can add visual interest and create a completely new sense of space.‎ The translucent properties of this solid surface material make it the perfect choice for lamps and illuminated furnishings.‎

SIMPLE PROCESSING
Although HI-MACS® is almost as robust as stone, it can be worked in the same way as wood.‎ Using conventional carpenters’ tools, this solid surface material can be sawn, routed or drilled.‎ It lends itself to the creation of an endless variety of multi-dimensional forms and much, much more.‎ No wonder most people working with the material have a background in woodworking and appreciate HI-MACS® as a natural partner for innovative ideas.‎ HI-MACS® holds a number of international certifications with regard to the environment, hygiene and fire resistance, such as ISO 9001 and 14001, Greenguard, NSF, LGA and IMO MED certification (Modules B and D), among others.‎ HI-MACS® stands out for its excellent quality service, guaranteed by its Quality Club programme, consisting of a network of expert manufacturers and approved distributors across Europe.‎ HI-MACS® offers the longest guarantee service on the market: 15 years.‎
