Properties & Sealing

A living material for shimmering facades

A living material

HI-MACS® has natural contraction and expansion properties related to temperature changes. When HI-MACS® is applied outdoors, thermal expansion is 30 x10-6 m/°C. A suitable fixing system must therefore be selected.

To build the HI-MACS® façades, LG Hausys suggests using a structure made from aluminium sheeting and a ventilated façade system using BWM fixings.

What about seals?

HI-MACS® does not recommend using glue on the outer facade because of expansion. We suggest leaving gaps of 8 to 10 mm between each panel.

Our guarantees

HI-MACS® offers a 10 years warranty on colours' UV resistance and loss of gloss over 40%, 10 years on colour leaching and 20 years on colour peeling, swelling or delaminating. The warranty is applicable after the first installation and is only valid for the sheet material; adhesives are excluded. The conditions for this warranty are based on pratical experience and on-going tests.

Technical factsheet

HI-MACS® performance properties

Size matters – to increase efficiency and reduce offcuts
HI-MACS® can be supplied in different sheet thicknesses, formats and sizes. Ideal for maximum cutting, minimum wastage and minimal costs. However, not all colours are available in any thickness, please see the colour charts here opposite for exact availability.
HI-MACS® FR - Low flammability
The fireresistant FR version is available in S728 Alpine White and complies with the requirements of the IMO standard modules B + D and M1. This quality is particularly suitable for use in public buildings, façades and shipbuilding.
HI-MACS® Ultra-Thermoforming:
This special formulation can be formed into very small radii (up to 6 mm radius).
