Renovating with HI-MACS, the latest-generation acrylic stone

The search for the perfect blend of practicality and aesthetics has recently put the spotlight on innovative, non-traditional materials that offer high levels of quality and eco-sustainability.

Natural acrylic stone is a prime example, and its leading exponent is HI-MACS, the version developed and manufactured by LG Hausys, which can take any shape, while retaining the robustness of stone.

Already used in architectural projects and interior designs by major names such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Rafael Moneo, Karim Rashid and David Chipperfield, and the first Solid Surface on the market to earn European Technical Approval (ETA) for exterior façades, this innovative material consists of acrylic resin, natural minerals and pigments, which combine to create a smooth, non-porous covering offering outstanding performance.

The three-dimensional thermoplastic moulding properties that derive from the latest-generation thermal  curing process, make it possible to produce projects with no visible joints. For HI-MACS, furthermore, eco-sustainability finds expression in the use of sustainable materials and eco-compatible production processes that ensure the possibility of end-of-life recycling. So the product can be used in a wide range of applications, as witness the wide range of different remodelling projects in which it has been deployed.
