HI-MACS Natural Acrylic Stone

Solid Surface Product: Information + Images

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. Designed and produced by LG HAUSYS, a world technology leader, it is distributed across Europe from LG Hausys Europe headquarters in Geneva.

HI-MACS® Natural Acrylic Stone

It is a product of highest quality, and is inert and ecological. Its versatility allows users to mould and transform their ideas into reality with possibilities far beyond those offered by materials traditionally used in the world of architecture and design. The most prestigious groups have adopted this product which adapts to the most demanding needs with its extraordinary characteristics; it is completely non-porous, has the highest level of durability and thus does not lose its colouring. It also has uniform thickness, allowing for perfectly imperceptible joints!

Easy to fabricate, HI-MACS®, with its excellent thermoformability properties, lets you adapt the material to the desired shapes and to create a range of designs that is nearly infinite.

HI-MACS® is used by the most prestigious companies, and many well-known architects and designers such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, David Chipperfield, Ron Arad, Marc Newson, Elke Delugan Meissl and Joaquín Torres. Some of the most notable projects made out of HI-MACS® include the Prado Museum and the Hotel Puerta América in Spain, Leonardo Glass Cube and the Porsche Museum in Germany and the Zara flagship store in the Westfield Shopping Complex in London, UK.

HI-MACS® is available in more than 100 colours, comprised of the following ranges: Solids, Granite, Sand, Pearl & Quartz, Volcanics, Lucent, Galaxy, Marmo, and the new recycled range of colours HI-MACS® Eden. Eden is GREENGUARD Certified for indoor air quality as a “Low Emitting Product” which can help your projects achieve LEED® credits in sustainable design, under the Green Building Rating System managed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) – A clear benefit for constructing sustainable buildings. HI-MACS® is manufactured in 3, 6, 9 and 12 mm thicknesses. Furthermore a wide range of sinks and bowls is available.

HI-MACS® is synonymous with the very best quality thanks to a production process that it is one of the world’s most innovative, sourcing the finest materials that result in a harder, flatter more resistant product. Many international certifications backup the outstanding quality of HI-MACS® concerning environment, hygiene, fire resistance and processes as ISO 9001 and 14001, Greenguard, NSF, LGA and IMO MED (Module B and D), among others.

HI-MACS® is in a league of its own with its quality assistance, guaranteed by Quality Club, a network of expert and approved fabricators. Thanks to the quality of the material, we can offer the longest warranty package currently on the market: 10+5 years*.
