HIPS Sheets

Versatile thermoformed High Impact Polystyrene -HIPS Sheet for


HIPS Sheets Products at Sangir NovaRene PS Sheets are made from polystyrene, an aromatic polymer made from aromatic monomer styrene. It is a liquid hydrocarbon commercially manufactured from petroleum by the chemical industry. Polystyrene is one of the most widely used kinds of plastic. Solid polystyrene in the sheets, etc., is used, e.g., in disposable cutlery, plastic models, CD and DVD cases, and smoke detector housings. The two grades of PS, GPPS, and HIPS, offer a variety of solutions and are chosen depending on the impact resistance required in the sheets. High-impact polystyrene can be assembled with mechanical fasteners, solvents, or adhesives. HIPS is FDA compliant for use in food processing.
