HI-MACS® fire resistance, low flame propagation and waterproof properties makes it ideal for impressive nautical design

HI-MACS® is widely used in the shipbuilding industry. On the one hand because the material is ideal for high-demand installations and is easy to maintain; on the other hand, because it meets the strict criteria of the marine sector.

It has extraordinary durability, is fire and UV resistant, has low flame propagation, is non-porousness and is impermeable.

HI-MACS® has excellent thermoformability properties and can be joined to give a visually seamless design which enables cruise ship, yacht and boat designers to realise any three-dimensional shape. The seamless finish ensures maximum hygiene with the additional ability to create bespoke surfaces matching perfectly the atypical interior shapes of nautical interior designs. HI-MACS® - IMO certified – is the ideal material for the marine industry. 

A new composition of HI-MACS® from the High-tech laboratories of LG has been developed for use in shipbuilding. HI-MACS® FR, has been awarded the IMO certificate module B and D in compliance with the Marine Equipment Directive for its fire resistant and fire-retardant properties.

Main Features

 
Water resistant
Thanks to its non-porous surface HI-MACS® is suitable for humid areas where moisture can form such as wet rooms and bathrooms.
 
A robust and durable material
The HI-MACS® facade colour range withstands humidity, UV radiation or variations in temperature thanks to homogeneous, non-porous material and other advantageous properties.
 
Extra fire resistant formulation HI-MACS® FR
HI-MACS® FR- version sheets in S728 Alpine White comply with IMO Standard Modules B+D and M1. FR sheets are especially suitable for use in public-buildings, external facades and in the marine industry.
 
Easy to maintain
HI-MACS® is hard-wearing, extremely repellent to stains and is therefore very easy to look after.
 
3-Dimensional design
HI-MACS® boasts a simple heating process and three-dimensional thermoplastic forming capabilities. This allows for greater forming flexibility compared with other conventional materials so that spectacular ideas can quickly take on a concrete shape.
 
Seamless perfection
HI-MACS® allows for visually seamless manipulation. Smooth integration enables large areas without joints or edges as well as flush mounting of sinks or bowls.
