High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)

High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a lower cost material that is widely used throughout the world. Natural HIPS is compliant with the FDA for use in food processing applications, and can be identified in consumer products by the resin identification code "6."

Low cost, machinability, good impact resistance, dimensional stability, FDA compliance, and easy colorability are all reasons for why this material might be perfect for your product. However, it is important to know that styrenes are flammable, so do not use HIPS if your product is intended to function in an environment near open flames.

If you are not sure about which material to use for your product, please contact us at 800-452-5533 and we will gladly assist you.
