Composition

Aluminium tri-hydroxide, the main component of HI-MACS®, is a bi-product of aluminium production.

The material allows for virtually waste-free processing.

Transport

The material is transported from the USA to Europe exclusively by ship. Within Europe, HI-MACS® observes the Euro-5 standards for reduced particulate emissions.
