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.
- Dissolves in D’limonene
- High impact-resistance
- Can be glued easily
- For matt, detailed, complex or large prints
- Light and durable
- Virtually no “warping”

HIPS is available from stock in five matt colours.
For non stock colours a minimum of 40kg ± 10% is required.
HIPS is available in nearly any type of packaging and labelling. Ask our team to help you customizing your product.
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.
