HI-MACS® fabrication guidelines
HI-MACS can be sawn, cut, drilled, planed and sanded with standard woodworking tools. The material is easy to work with and to machine. HI-MACS have their own, tinted two-component adhesives, which provide seamless joints. There should be a dust extraction system in the work areas to ensure that the seam and surface treatments are successful.
Small dents or scratches can be polished away with a conventional abrasive sponge or with fine-grained abrasive material. More widely damaged areas can be replaced with a new plate without traces of repair. With suitable heating and molding equipment, the material can be thermoformed to desired shapes at temperatures between 160-180oC.
The HI-MACS sheets are delivered factory polished and with a protective film. The end products are to be finished by sanding the surface to the required gloss level. If the sheet surface is intact, sanding can be started with a grade S 280 - 320 sanding paper and then moving step by step gradually to a finer polish.
