High Impact Polystyrene, commonly referred to as HIPS, is a cost effective and lightweight sheet plastic which is ideally suited to thermoforming and printing applications. Benefitting from up to seven times greater impact strength than general purpose polystyrene, it is a low cost yet high performance plastic  which excels in a variety of applications.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight
  • Suitable for thermoforming
  • Suitable for painting and printing
  • FDA approved for food contact
  • Very cost effective
  • Impact resistant
  • Easy to fabricate
  • Suitable for gluing
  • Finish: Matt/Gloss
  • Supplied with protective film on one side

Combining excellent forming qualities, good colouration and mechanical properties, HIPS is frequently used to manufacture of product prototypes. This is due largely to its low cost but is also thanks to the ease at which it can be fabricated, painted and glued; along with the fantastic dimensional stability of the finished item.

The ability to be thermoformed makes HIPS a very versatile cut plastic material, and it is also a popular choice of material for creating a variety of storage and low strength transport containers. White HIPS is Food and Drug Administration approved and is therefore safe for use in food preparation environments and also with taste or odour sensitive products thanks to its low residual volatility.

Other properties of HIPS which broaden the range of applications it is suitable for include its ability to accommodate paint and printing. This makes it a great material for a number of indoor point of sale, display and signage applications where it results in a terrifically lightweight and attractive finished product.

The versatility of HIPS makes it a fantastically popular choice of material for a number of applications where an easy to handle, easy to thermoform, dimensionally stable and printer friendly sheet plastic is required. Our white 1mm HIPS sheet is available to order cut to size to your desired dimensions.


    Common applications for high density polystyrene include:

    • Point of sale signage
    • Indoor display signage
    • Indoor advertising
    • Model making
    • Tray forming
    • Templating
    • Printing
    • Food storate
    • Low strength transportation
    • Packaging

    Seed tray separatorsReviewed by Richard T on 09 Apr 2016

    I purchased a sheet of CUT PLASTIC SHEETING 1mm White High Impact Polystyrene The service was excellent and the material met my expeditions. I wanted it to make some seed tray separators as I cant find anybody who makes them. I cut the sheet with a large pair of scissors with ease and was able to fit the parts together by cutting slots half the width of the strips. If only I could buy them already cut it would save me a lot of time. I have sent 5 photos of my construction, the material was marvellous.
