HI-MACS® is not only excellent indoors, but is also ideal for use on façades and as cladding, firstly due to its three-dimensional thermoplastic forming capabilities, secondly thanks to its extensive range of colours that have excellent resistance to weathering.
A ROBUST A 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.
Easy to clean and maintain, the perfect function and visual effect will last for many years (even damage caused by graffiti can be removed without any trace).
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.
SUITABLE FOR FACADE
Fixed with Keil inserts and a BWM structure, HI-MACS® facade in S728 - Alpine White successfully passed the ETA tests (European Technical Agreement).
A LIVING MATERIAL FOR SHIMMERING FACADES
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.
HI-MACS® panels are mounted -- invisibly from the outside -- to the aluminium substructure. We recommend using an invisible undercut anchor which is offered by Keil attachment technology.
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.
HI-MACS® offers a 5 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 practical experience and on-going tests.
