HIGH IMPACT POLYSTYRENE (HIPS)

HIGH IMPACT POLYSTYRENE (HIPS)2019-10-17T10:37:26-03:00

The HIPS (High Impact) polystyrene is a polymer obtained from the styrene monomer, added to 5% up to 15% of polybutadiene. The microscopic particles generated along the process transform properties of the polystyrene, enhancing impact resistance and stretching capacity. In addition, it gets also opaque and rigid, but non-toxic.

The HIPS is developed in different grades, one for each specific necessity. Some uses:
