PRODUCT SPECIFICS

Material
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, with 70%, is the natural mineral aluminium hydroxide (ATH) obtained from bauxite (aluminium ore).

Available Colors
Heat Resistance
Although LG HI-MACS® remains stable and undamaged in temperatures up to 212ºF (100ºC), high heat or flame will damage your surface. To protect your HI-MACS® countertop from heat damage, always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet when using hot pots, or heat-generating appliances like electric skillets or electric cooking pots.
Cleanliness
LG HI-MACS surfaces are perhaps the easiest surfaces to clean and maintain. To keep your countertop looking immaculate, just wipe with a damp cloth or sponge. Food residue can be easily removed with a mild detergent or glass cleaner. If your to-do list could do without “reseal granite countertop,” this is a definite advantage.
Scratch Resistance
LG HI-MACS® is not scratch-proof. Surface markings are more visible on monotone colors than multi-colored surfaces. Always use a cutting board. Major scratches can be removed by a certified HI-MACS® fabricator.
Fabrication
LG HI-MACS® surfaces are installed with imperceptible seams. That means you can smoothly connect your countertops, backsplashes and sinks into a one-piece kitchen system. If conspicuous seams aren’t in your design plans, this is a definite advantage.
