HIMACS meets the strictest quality-standards. Its internationally certified resistance to dirt, viruses, bacteria and numerous chemicals makes it the first material of choice
in the healthcare sector for hygienic wall claddings, furniture and work surfaces.
HIMACS boasts a host of benefits, especially for the hospital and medical industries. Its high level of quality makes it the ideal material for hospitals, laboratories, clinics and other healthcare facilities. Some of the wide variety of applications in this sector includes: Wall coverings, countertops, doors, table claddings (in patients' rooms, nursing staff rooms, laboratories, cafeterias…), wash basins (in bathrooms and operating theatre blocks), showers and signage (translucent and embossed).
In terms of hygiene, HIMACS does not absorb humidity and it is extremely stain resistant. It has a smooth, non-porous surface, to prevent the penetration of any liquids. It constitutes a perfect base for disinfected areas which need to comply with the strictest hygiene rules. Being completely sterile, this material contains absolutely no toxic substances and it is easy to clean. It is compatible with the strongest detergents, including those used to clean operating theatre blocks, while retaining a gleaming new appearance for a long time. With easy and rapid care, cleaning times between operations are reduced, thereby saving a considerable amount of time. Architects and designers also have the opportunity to create surfaces with no visible seams, making the proliferation of bacteria and mould almost impossible.
Thanks to this sturdy and long-lasting material, renovation work in hospital settings is less frequent. This new generation acrylic stone is very simple to install and can be used on a large number of different surfaces.
