HI-MACS is the solid surface material of the ‘New Generation’. The mineral material consists of approximately one third acrylic resin (polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA) and 5% natural pigments. Its main constituent, at 70% content, is the natural mineral aluminium hydroxide (ATH) obtained from aluminium ore, or bauxite.
The intelligent combination of acrylic, natural minerals and pigments to produce HI-MACS produces a non-porous, smooth surface that meets the most exacting hygiene requirements and offers a number of benefits over conventional alternatives. HI-MACS is superior to conventional products, such as marble, granite, glass, ceramic, laminate or polyester, especially on account of its flexibility and the possibility of seamless joints together with ease of repairability.
