EasyFil™ HIPS is a true competitor for mass mainstream 3D printing materials, such as PLA and ABS. With EasyFil™ HIPS being positioned as a mainstream 3D printer filament, it brings a special 3D print material to the ordinary. You are now be able to print PolyStyrene objects just as easy as PLA, or ABS objects!
EasyFil™ HIPS is a is thermoplastic polymer filament known as High Impact PolyStyrene, which is especially designed for 3D printing PolyStyrene objects. EasyFil™ HIPS distinguishes itself from “normal” HIPS filaments by being slightly softer and more flexible – in combination with very limited warping, having an excellent thermal stability and 3D print flowing behaviour – resulting in a truly “easy to print” HIPS 3D printer filament and a true asset to our EasyFil™ filament range.
With EasyFil™ HIPS you will be able to 3D print PolyStyrene objects with fine detail in a beautiful matt coloured finish.
EasyFil™ HIPS 3D printed parts are very lightweight and can very easily be glued together with a variety of adhesives, such as HIPS styrene glues, epoxy based adhesives, superglues and also with contact adhesives. These specific characteristics of EasyFil™ HIPS, make our EasyFil™ HIPS an ideal filament for applications like model building, or for gluing modular prints.
PolyStyrene is a thermoplastic which is very chemically inert, being resistant to acids and bases. Because of its resilience and inertness, PolyStyrene is one of the most widely used thermoplastic polymers in the world. PolyStyrene is for instance extensively being used in the food packaging industry, but also for the production of e.g. disposable plastic cutlery/dinnerware and CD/DVD jewel cases.
EasyFil™ HIPS has outstanding characteristics with respect to hygiene, strength and heat resistance and it prints really smoothly. 3D printed objects with EasyFil™ HIPS can be sanded, primed and if needed painted with acrylic afterwards. By giving your EasyFil™ HIPS printed object an acetone vapor smoothing treatment you will be able to create a really smooth and shiny surface. Your FFF/FDM 3D printed object will almost look like an injection moulded model.
