Solid Surface is the ideal choice for surfaces in healthcare countertops & hygienic environments such as hospitals, surgery rooms, laboratories, elderly care homes and beauty clinics.
Specialized healthcare architects and designers are keen users of HI-MACS® Acrylic Solid Surface materials on reception counters, countertops, bathroom, wall cladding and sometimes even floor due to its antibacterial properties, non-porous nature, water & stain resistant proficiency. Even over time, the material surface is tested to resist bacterial growth.
In addition to that, the inherent seamless nature of HI-MACS® enables the material to be categorised as low maintenance surface and simple preservation with gentle, non-toxic cleaning solutions is enough. Therefore solutions like ethanol, bleach and stronger detergents are not necessary for cleaning these surfaces. These are the critical properties and advantages of HI-MACS® Acrylic Solid Surface in healthcare sector.
Properties of LG Hausys HI-MACS® Acrylic Solid Surface
Porous surface VS Non Porous surface A porous countertop, vanity, wall or floor allows the passing through of water, liquid or vapor. Objects containing porous surfaces have empty spaces or pores that allow external matter—like water, air, stains and particles—to penetrate into the object making it difficult or not possible to remove entirely.
