HIPS is an easy to print, High Impact Polystyrene filament with
multifunctional properties. HIPS is an excellent support material in combination with ABS, because it dissolves in
D’limonene and ABS remains unaffected. HIPS is very suitable for detailed prints, but also for large objects because the material shows very limited warping. Furthermore HIPS is
very light and durable, has good interlayer bonding, can be glued easily and the colours result in a smooth matt surface of the 3D printed objects. High Impact Polystyrene is therefore widely
used in model building.
HIPS is available from stock in five colours.
For non stock colours a minimum of 40kg ± 10% is required.
Recommended temperature for heated bed is ± 65-110˚C.
The speed with which HIPS dissolves in D’limonene is depending on the volume and improves by movement.
HIPS can be used on all common desktop FDM or FFF technology 3D printers.
Cool and dry (15-25˚C) and away from UV light. This enhances the shelf life significantly.
