High Impact Polystyrene  HIPS    Great  for Displays, Exhibits, Graphics, and Special Events

HIPS is a low cost plastic material that is easy to machine and fabricate. HIPS is often specified for low strength structural applications when impact resistance, machinability, and low cost are required. It is frequently used machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to fabricate, paint and glue. Natural (translucent white) HIPS is FDA compliant for use in food processing applications. The following physical property information is based on typical values of the base high impact polystyrene resin.
