HI-MACS® has almost the same strength as stone, but can nevertheless be worked with and fabricated in the same way as wood. The Solid Surface material can be sawn, cut, drilled or planed using conventional carpenters‘ tools. Many mineral material fabricators were originally carpenters or joiners and have come to appreciate HI-MACS® as the perfect partner for innovative ideas. On the one hand, it is simple and easy to handle and, on the other hand, it has versatile Design Possibilities that inspire creative craftsman to play around with the thermoplastic and translucent properties of the material, to engrave it, print it and much, much more.
The techniques described here serve merely as rough guidelines to demonstrate the most common fabrication possibilities using the material. For fuller information and further effective methods for fabrication using HI-MACS® Natural Acrylic Stone™, please refer to the HI-MACS® Manual and the technical information issued by LG Hausys Europe GmbH.
