HIPS is a material blend of polystyrene plastic and polybutadiene rubber. The mixture of these polymers results in a material that is both tough and resistant to impact.
HIPS is an abbreviation for high-impact polystyrene, which is a polymer blend of polystyrene plastic and polybutadiene rubber. This combination creates a material that is known for its toughness and impact resistance. HIPS shares similarities with ABS, but it is specifically designed to withstand higher impact forces. It is easily paintable, machinable, and compatible with a wide range of adhesives.
