HIPS - High Impact Polystyrene

HIPS is an impact modified polystyrene resins and has a good impact strength and chemical resistance. Commonly used as a support material in 3D printing compatible with ABS and other styrenic based polymers.

HIPS is used in a large variety of applications such as food packaging, home appliances, toys, sports & leisure, hygiene & personal care, etc.
