HI-MACS: A Silica-Free Solid Surface that Offers Endless Design Possibilities

HI-MACS by Laminex is a thermoformable and visually seamless solid surface made with a unique combination of acrylic, minerals and natural pigments. It is non-porous, antibacterial and silica-free, making it a safe and hard wearing choice for residential bathrooms and kitchens, commercial fit-outs, hospitals and more. Best of all, HI-MACS is incredibly versatile — take advantage of options for custom shapes and backlighting to create truly striking interior designs.

Bring bespoke seamless designs to life — from benchtops to furniture

The thermoformable nature of HI-MACS makes it ideal for creating custom benchtop and furniture designs. In residential kitchens it can be used to create stunning seamless benchtops that invoke a sense of flow. And on commercial projects, the surface can be moulded to create bespoke shapes for furniture and reception areas.

“With HI-MACS you have that flexibility to create virtually any shape,” explains Ryan Mckenzie, National Specification Manager, Laminex New Zealand. “And with seamless joins, you can get the one-piece effect no matter the size.”

Create extra wow factor with translucency and lighting

HI-MACS is available in a range of colours with special translucency when exposed to light. This opens up options for adding further visual interest to your designs through creative use of light sources, patterns and cut-out effects. Some recent projects where this has been used to stunning effect include a commercial fit-out featuring a backlit HI-MACS wall, a seamless HI-MACS stairwell with bespoke HI-MACS light fixtures, and an art gallery installation with glowing HI-MACS plinths.

A long-lasting, sustainable surface

It’s important to use materials that are safe for homeowners, applicators and the environment. HI-MACS is a silica-free surface that is manufactured in accordance with ISO:14001. It is also NSF and Greenguard Certified for added peace of mind. Importantly, HI-MACS allows for virtually waste-free processing, and is made to last — it is strong, durable, and older installations can be renewed to their original appearance, rather than being replaced, ensuring a positive long-term environmental footprint.
