HIPS Recycling

HIPS is a 100% recyclable material and is identified by the resin ID code ‘6’

As HIPS is a type of thermoplastic that can be shaped easily using heat, it can be recycled into a wide variety of applications

HIPS is often specified for low strength structural applications when impact resistance, machinability, and low cost are required. It is frequently used machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to fabricate, paint, and glue

A versatile, cost-effective, impact-resistant material, which is easy to vacuum form, extrude, bend and mold into shape. It boasts extreme malleability and can be re-molded over and over, making it environmentally friendly, as it can be recycled

What Is HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene)

  • it is easy to machine and fabricate.
  • it is a good insulator.
  • it is FDA compliant.
  • it is sturdy and durable with strong impact resistance.
  • it is easily processed.
  • it is easy to paint and glue.
  • it has a relatively low cost.

Advantages of HIPS

  • High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is an economical and versatile plastic.
  • It shows good impact resistance, dimensional stability and can be easily molded.
  • It is glossy in nature and easily processable.
  • It can be easily painted thanks to its amorphous structure.
