4 new HIPS colors December 06 2019
High Impact Polystyrene or HIPS is a perfect material for prototyping or functional objects. This is why we are now offering four new colors to give a chance to make a functional object also aesthetically pleasing or practical color marking.
- HIPS Extrafill "Metallic Grey"
- HIPS Extrafill "Sky Blue"
- HIPS Extrafill "Signal Red"
Thanks to the clean surface finish, HIPS is perfect for printing support parts. These printed parts are dissolvable in Lemonesol, which is a special liquid that doesn't affect the quality of PLA or ABS object.
It offers excellent mechanical properties, such as strength, impact resistance, toughness, and heat resistance. This filament is resistant to moisture and water, thus it is ideal for application in long-term contact with hot water.
Moreover, HIPS has great dielectric strength and resistivity properties, meaning it can be used in the production of electrical and electronic equipment. It's also certified for food contact, which makes it perfect for the food and packaging industry.
During the printing process of HIPS filament, small quantities of styrene are released into the atmosphere.
