High impact polystyrene (HIPS) is a highly versatile thermoplastic material, highly resistant to impact and easy to print. It has high rigidity and good dimensional stability and temperature resistance.
HIPS is mainly used in 3D printing as a support material thanks to its ability to dissolve in limonene. Its good mechanical performance also makes it an ideal material for various applications such as toys, electronic equipment housings, boxes, tools, etc.
HIPS exhibits good adhesion to the bed, low warping and curling, and enables high definition in the printed parts.
We recommend its use as a support material for parts made of ABS or ASA..
The use of a natural and/or forced ventilation system is recommended to guarantee the renewal of air at workplace.
Sakata 3D Filaments HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) filament is developed
for the manufacture of parts that require high dimensional stability
and good mechanical and thermal and electrical insulation properties. It
is mainly used as a support material for ABS, allowing the creation of
complex parts in multi-material printers thanks to its high solubility
Printing temperature: 235°C – 245°C
Heated bed temperature: < 90°C
