Features and benefits
Every option is available to designers to create neat washrooms, kitchens, hospitals and much more with our wide range of HIMACS sinks and bowls. Perfectly coordinated and ideal for mixing and matching, the bowls and sinks guarantee a modern look that is easy ad simple to look after.
Certain colours and thicknesses of HIMACS exhibit a special translucency when exposed to light. Various textures and patterns can be built into the material to intensify the HIMACS translucency effect.
HIMACS 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.
HIMACS offers a virtually limitless range of colours in all conceivable shades. More are being added every year no matter what colour you choose, HIMACS remains 100% homogeneous.
The material is heated in a progressive tempering process (Thermal Cure). which sets HIMACS apart from other mineral materials and produces a new and stronger compound in which any structural defects are perfectly evened out. This improved structure automatically affects the quality of the material.
Although HIMACS is almost as robust as stone, it can be worked in the same way as wood. Using conventional carpenter's tools, this solid surface material can be sawn, routed or drilled.
HIMACS allows for visually seamless manipulation. Smooth integration enables large areas without joints or edges as well as flush mounting of sinks or bowls.
Stronger surface with durability similar to that of natural stone - HIMACS stands up to everyday scratches. Should you accidentally inflict a deeper scratch or surface impression, a trained professional can easily resurface your HIMACS thanks to its sealant-free consistency.
Backed up with numerous certificates that attest of its fire resistance, HIMACS is ideal for places where security is the number 1 criteria of choice.
Thanks to its impermeability to dirt, bacteria, viruses and countless chemicals, HIMACS is the ideal material for the hospital, medical practice or laboratory. And for all other areas where hygiene really counts.
Thanks to its non-porous surface HIMACS is suitable for humid areas where moisture can form such as wet rooms and bathrooms.
With easy-to-care and repairable properties, no matter if it's a scratch, stain or crack, HIMACS can be restored to its original state by a certified professional.
HIMACS supports greener earth by using sustainable material, eco-friendly manufacturing process and recycling at the end of its life-cycle. LX Hausys fully stands behind HIMACS uality, which is we offer a 15 year transferable warranty with customer's best interest in mind.

M1 Emissions Classification
Leadership in Energy and Environnemental Design (LEED)
Is a standard voluntary system to certify high performance of buildings, from the US Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED certifies buildings using a credit system. The use of HIMACS contributes toward satisfying EQ Credit for Low-Emitting Materials with the category Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ).
The ISO 14000 family concerns the management of environmental quality. The most popular certificate in this group is ISO 14001. It encourages the minimisation of damage caused by our own activity to the environment and the continuous improvement of environmental performance. The objective is to contribute to protecting and stabilising our planet’s environment. This test certifies that the environment management system of HIMACS conforms to ISO 14001 standards.
Environmental Building Certificate – Grade "outstanding"
HI-MACS has been approved by Greenguard in the USA, as a “low emitting product”. The organisation establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments and buildings. The organisation’s goal is to improve public health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air.
The DGNB system, founded by the "German Sustainable Building Council”, evaluates buildings holistically on the basis of individual criteria within the categories Ecological Quality, Economic Quality, Sociocultural and Functional Quality, Technical Quality, Process Quality and Location Quality. Different profiles allow the certification of new buildings and existing buildings, as well as of quarters in Germany and Internationally. Buildings can achieve a certification in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. HIMACS has an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which can be used to calculate the building life cycle assessment (ENV1.1/2.1). Furthermore, HIMACS has achieved Quality Level 4 of 4 in DGNB 2018 criteria for local environmental impact for the entire product.
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method)
BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning rojects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment. HIMACS can contribute to BREEAM International New Construction 2016 certification, as the entire product complies with Hea 02 Indoor air quality. Furthermore, HIMACS achieved RSCS summary score level in Mat 03, responsible sourcing of construction products for the entire product: RSCS level 1. “BREEAM is a registered trade mark of the Building Research Establishment Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of BRE Group Limited, and is used by permission. LX Hausys and its products are not affiliated, endorsed or certified by BRE Global Limited, which is the operator of BREEAM, or any other subsidiary of BRE Group Limited. All rights are reserved.”
Norme NFP 92-501 Classe M1
LNE tests the reactivity to fire of a material. Class M1 certifies that HIMACS FR benefits from advanced resistance to fire. This certificate is recommended in France.
Norm EN 45 545 Class R1 HZL3
Fire protection on railway vehicles: The measures and requirements specified in EN 45 545 are intended to protect passengers and staff in railway vehicles in the event of a fire on board. HIMACS has achieved the highest and best performance R1 HZL3 (Hazard Level). Valid for Alpine White S728.
Norme EN 13501 - Classe B-s1, d0
HIMACS successfully passed the European test EN 13501 – Class B-s1, d0, equivalent to the class 0 from Warrington Fire certification.
Norme DIN 4102-1 – Classe B1
Class B1 certifies that HIMACS has a low flammability. B1 class is the European fire resistance requirement. This test result is valid for all colour ranges in 12mm.
IMO MED - modules B et D
MED stands for Marine Equipment Directive. Both modules are extremely important for the shipbuilding industry, as they are mandatory for fabrication materials used in ships. IMO B covers the fire resistance of the material per se and certifies that the material has low flame spread characteristics and is not capable of producing excessive quantities of smoke and toxic combustion products. Module D covers the overall production capacity and checks, among other production processes, the management and systems used.
Fixed with Keil inserts and a BWM structure, HIMACS facade in S728 - Alpine White successfully passed the ETA tests (European Technical Agreement).
HIMACS has obtained the French QB certification and CSTB ATec “Avis Technique” for facade applications (Avis Technique 2.2/18-1795_V1).
NSF standards are generally accepted norms for a variety of public health related industries and fields. These include drinking water treatment and contact with materials, food equipment manufacturing etc. NSF recognises that HIMACS complies with NSF norms.
Necessary in hospitals and environments where hygiene is critical, LGA assesses the ease of cleaning, resistance to bacteria and fungi and rates the design from a hygiene point of view. Thanks to its non-porosity, HIMACS has been approved for the LGA seal “hygiene tested”.
ISO 9001 criteria can guarantee the following points: The whole fabrication process, ensuring a good product quality Quality control, with an appropriate corrective procedure, when needed and regular control of quality control procedures. Process, which aims to continuously improve global efficiency
OHSAS 18001, Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, (officially BS OHSAS 18001) is a British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. Compliance with it enables organizations to demonstrate that they have a system in place for occupational health and safety.
