1.  High impact polystyrene (HIPS) is a tough plastic that has excellent impact strength, high stiffness and excellent Moldability but reduced transparency.


    2.  HIPS is used for household appliances (TV housings, exterior of air-conditioner, etc.), office automation apparatus (housing for a copying machine, printer, etc.), toys, housewares, frozen food tray, bottles for a lactic acid drink, cups for ice cream, yogurt, tofu, etc.


    3.  HIPS characteristics:-

    ·    Low residual monomer

    ·    Easy processing

    ·    Good heat resistance

    ·    High impact strength

    ·    Base color stability

    ·    Well-balanced mechanical properties with high impact and excellent flexural strength

    ·    Super high impact

    ·    High gloss with toughness

    ·    Medium-impact with high heat resistance

    ·    Applicable to Flame-retardant grade

    ·    Excellent processability
