HISHIMETAL HG incorporates galvanized steel sheets, stainless steel sheets, and aluminum sheets as a base material. HISHIMETAL HG is a composite material produced by laminating HG film onto the base material using our multi-layer extrusion technology.

This material is utilized primarily in door applications due to its many design options such as metallic designs and similar.




  • This material exhibits a high-luminance metallic appearance.
  • Embossing enables this material to have different types of textures such as a sharp gloss matte surface or the impression of profundity
  • This material can be used in typical metal forming processes such as bending, cutting, and pressing.
  • This material is utilized in applications that require weather resistance, such as doors.
  • This material has excellent scratch resistance.



HISHIMETAL HG is expected to be used in various applications due to its many design options.

  • Exterior applications
    : Doors
  • Other
    : Various types of equipment etc.
