High Impact Polystyrene

High Impact Polystyrene- HIPS thanks to presence of polybutadiene is flexible and much more resistance to cracking than GPPS. The addition of polybutadiene reduces stiffness, transparency and gloss in comparision to GPPS. Application: film extrusion, which in  the  next  process is thermoforming ( packaging , parts of  refrigerator ), for  injection moulding of consumer goods. HIPS, thanks to presence of polybutadiene is flexible and much more resistance to cracking than GPPS. The addition of polybutadiene reduce stiffness, transparency and gloss in comparision to GPPS. High Impact Polystyrene is characterized by lower tensile strength and products made from this material have mat surface. Temperature range of application of products : from -10 C to +75C for continuous use. Application of HIPS: foil extrusion, which in the next process is thermoforming (packaging, inside refrigerators), for injection moulding of consumer goods.
