HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene Sheet) is a co-extruded plastic product making it perfect for thermo-forming. It is often used in the packaging and screen-printing industries and is usually very cost effective.
Uses / Applications
Due to its good impact strength and excellent printability using special inks for HIPS, it is frequently used in the signage and display markets for shelf talkers, plant tags, and various formed items.
Being FDA approved as food safe means it is regularly used for food containers, cups, and trays.
HIPS can be sawn, cut, drilled and guillotined using the usual methods for plastic.
