Printing on Polystyrene (HIPS)

Polystyrene, or High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), is a versatile plastic that is low cost and easily thermoformed or fabricated. A synthetic hydrocarbon polymer, polystyrene can be solid or foamed. General-purpose polystyrene is clear, hard, brittle or rigid. When combined with various colorants, additives or other plastics, polystyrene is used to make a wide variety of consumer products; such as, appliances, electronics, automobile parts, toys, food packaging, equipment and more.


Applications & Processing

Products made with polystyrene come in FDA compliant grades and are recyclable. This plastic maintains strength in high-impact applications and easily moldable. This makes this plastic ideal for injection molding and extrusion projects. Below is a list of common products that use polystyrene:

  • Hot & cold catering boxes
  • TV and audio-visual equipment parts
  • Instrument panels and fittings
  • Gasoline tanks
  • Components for medical devices
