What is HIMACS

HIMACS is a delicate composition of acrylic, minerals and natural pigments that combine to create a smooth, non porous, thermoformable and visually seamless surface.

An outstanding material

The material meets the highest stands for quality in all respects: material performance, fabrication, functionality and hygiene.  Thanks to these qualities and the outstanding flexibility in fabrication and design, HIMACS offers countless advantages over conventional materials.

Outstanding features abound

  • Simple processing
    Although HIMACS is almost as robust as stone, it can be worked in the same way as wood.  Using conventional carpenters' tools, this solid surface material can be sawn, routed or drilled.  Thanks to the new Thermalcure-technology the surface of HIMACS performs better than the standard in Solid Surface.  You save precious time because it is easier to work with.

  • Seamless perfection
    HIMACS allows for visually seamless fabrication.  Smooth integration creates large areas without visible joints or edges as well as the flush mounting of bowls.  This results in extremely hygienic, easy-to-clean installations, ideally suited for use in hospitals and laboratories.

  • Three-dimensional design
    HIMACS boasts a simple heating process and three dimensional thermoforming capabilities.  This enable greater forming flexibility compared with other conventional materials so that spectacular ideas can quickly take on a concrete shape. HIMACS  Ultra-Thermoforming allows the material to be better shaped; the minimal internal radius of 6mm (previously 50mm) opens a wholly new design dimension.

  • Dramatic translucency
    Certain colours and thicknesses of HIMACS exhibit a subtle translucency when exposed to light.  The translucent properties of HIMACS make it the perfect choice for lamps and illuminated furnishings.

  • Huge colour spectrum
    Colour selection is a crucial factor when it comes to high-quality design. HIMACS offers an enormous range of colours.  No matter what colour you choose HIMACS remains 100% homogeneous.
