Feature:

HIPS Filament is made from High Impact Polystyrene material.  Naturally, HIPS filament has bright white color and it is also biodegradable. HIPS material is similar to ABS and share a lot of the same characteristics. It has comparable strength and durability to ABS filament. HIPS filament is extremely versatile and economical. With the feature of dissolving in D-limonene,HIPS filament is commonly used as a supporting material especially in conjunction with ABS filament.

Print Setting:

HIPS filament is generally extruded at the temperature as 210-250℃. A heated bed during the printing(at around 115℃) is usually used to reduce the problem of curling and adhesion. HIPS remain pliable until it’s cool. Do not remove your print until fully cooled or it will bend.

Application:

This material is well spread in food industry for packaging. In the 3D Printing domain, HIPS filament is commonly used as a supporting material especially in conjunction with ABS filament.

Post Processing:

Usually, the support material outside can be sanded or finished. But if the support material is inside of the printed object, a dissolvable material such as HIPS filament will be needed to remove supporting. Dissolving HIPS filament in a Limonene liquor will leave behind just the ABS filament printed sections.

Storage Method:

If your HIPS filament roll will be put on hold over a long time, please store it properly in an airtight container to keep it from attracting moisture from the ambient air.
