PS/HIPS Polystyrene high impact polystrene

 

PS is clear, glassy, rigid, opaque, semi-touch and softens at 95°C.

 

PS-E is expanded polystyrene.

 

HIPS is a polystyrene which is processed with rubber. This manufacturing process produces a highly durable product that can resist high impact use.  

 

Although HIPS is a recyclable plastic, HIPS is not widely recycled throughout the UK.

 

HIPS is available in a variety of colours: clear, natural or Pantone colour match. Antistatic HIPS is conductive for the electronics industry.
