High Impact Polystyrene is a low cost, tough plastic that is easy to thermoform and fabricate. This is often used for countertop point of purchase displays and indoor signs where ease of fabrication is essential. It is a versatile, economical and impact-resistant plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate. HIPS is often specified for low strength structural applications when impact resistance, machinability, and low cost are required. High Impact Polystyrene is frequently used machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to fabricate, paint, and glue.
