HI-MACS® - Marmo By HI-MACS
HI-MACS®, Solid Surface
HI-MACS® 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.
HI-MACS® 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 HI-MACS®.
LG Hausys’ HI-MACS® 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 HI-MACS® is almost as robust as stone, it can be worked in a similar way as wood: it can be sawn, routed, drilled or sanded.
HI-MACS® is manufactured using a new generation technology, the thermal cure. The temperature reached during the manufacturing process sets HI-MACS® apart from other solid surfaces and creates a denser, even more homogeneous, sturdy, durable surface – with a better resistance and superior thermoforming performance.
The HI-MACS® Marmo Collection has been updated with nine new colours to fulfil current trends for top-quality marble looks, ranging from pale white-in-white, through shades of grey, to striking dark-brown and anthracite tones.
The new Aurora Colours 2020 are inspired by the natural beauty of the Northern Lights. In brilliant waves over the sky the vibrant flow of Aurora Borealis is captured in these tones. Two of the colours, Pavia and Aurora Cotton, have a semi-translucent property, which enables designers to play with light effects, giving the ability to integrate this natural phenomenon into their interior designs.
The new Aurora Colours - an evolution of the Marmo Collection - combine aesthetics inspired by nature with all the benefits of the latest generation solid surface HI-MACS®.
