HIPS 3D Printing Filament

Description

HIPS 3D Printing Filament is made from a High Impact Polystyrene material and it is another example of support 3d materials. This material is well spread in food industry for packaging. It is also used to pack CD discs and to produce trays in medicine. All these applications put this material at 5th place after Polyethylene, Polyvinyl, Chloride and Polypropylene among produced polymers worldwide. Naturally this filament has bright white color and it is also biodegradable so there are no adverse effects when it is put in tight contact with a human or animal body. HIPS 3D Printing Filament has curling and adhesion problems, which can be reduced by using a heated bed during the printing. HIPS material can also be used as support structure during the printing and then dissolved in a colorless liquid hydrocarbon Limonene.

Once the print job is complete, the HIPS 3D Printing Filament can be dissolved using a colorless liquid hydrocarbon. It disappears like magic!
