Material Properties

HIPS is a type of dense polystyrene and one of the most-known polymers worldwide. It has a flexibility which allows it to be high impact and an excellent alternative to ABS or other high strength materials for your projects. It is also dissolvable in the chemical known as d-limonene, a common ingredient in cleaning agents, and therefore it is used as a support material for prints using something like ABS as the main material, which prints in very similar temperatures.

 

Applications

Due to it's physical properties, HIPS is often used in the packaging industry and food industry as well as consumer electronics.

It is also an excellent choice for applications that require post processing since the material can easily be:

  • Glued with a variety of adhesives
  • Sanded
  • Primed & Painted
  • Treated with acetove vapor to create a smooth, glossy surface
