HI-MACS® launches the 2012 new colours
22 Feb 2012
LG Hausys announced the launch of the new 2012 HI-MACS® colours and new CAD compatible colours available for download that will make architects and designer’s work easier.
Along with a choice of material, colour selection is a crucial factor when it comes to high-quality design. HI-MACS® offers a virtually limitless range of colours in all conceivable shades, and more are being added every year.
In 2012 LG Hausys HQ’s technicians developed a new generation of Galaxy colours: Andromeda, Carina, New Moon and Hercules, with an elegant and quartz-like appearance, while maintaining the universal advantages of HI-MACS® Solid Surface: easy to repair, invisible joints and thermoformability.
The Solid colours have been enhanced as well with a new special shade: Midnight Grey, chosen by the renowned architect Jean Nouvel for its project at Hotel Puerta América in Madrid – Spain – Midnight Grey has now become part of the standard HI-MACS® colour range for 2012.
As well as these 5 new colours, the ever popular Black colour from the solid range is now available in a 9mm thickness as well as the standard 12mm.
Additionally, the HI-MACS® full colour palette is now available for download in CAD software compatible format, for fast and easy prototyping and rendering in design and architectural projects.
While HI-MACS® has been proving its worth indoors for many years, it can also be used for outdoor applications, especially for facades, therefore LG Hausys has recently recommended 12 colours for external applications, including Opal from the lucent range, allowing architects to create dramatic light effects for exterior wall cladding.
The result is a full palette of 100 colours: Solids, Granite, Sand, Pearl & Quartz, Volcanics, Lucent, Galaxy, Marmo, and the eco-friendly recycled range of colours HI-MACS® Eden, which has up to 41% of recycled material thus helping your projects achieve LEED® credits in sustainable design.
