Our yellow HIPS 3D printer filament is available in 1.75mm or 3mm sizes. Available in 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) spools, yellow HIPS 3D printing filament brightens household items, gifts, toys, and games. This material works as a 3D printing filament on its own or can be used as supports for larger objects. The supports easily dissolve in Limonene, leaving only the ABS model. Any craftsman, maker, or designer will enjoy their day when using our 1.75mm or 3mm yellow HIPS filament!
Yellow High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a versatile 3D printer filament to have on hand. HIPS is an impact resistant plastic and can be printed on its own or as a supports for ABS (very useful with dual-head printers). It can be dissolved when immersed with Limonene, making supports easy to remove post-print. HIPS filament is especially useful for creating large structures where supports are crucial. It typically shares the same strength and hardness properties as ABS.
Extrusion Temperature Range: 220 oC – 260 oC
Storage Requirements: Store in an airtight container or bag at room temperature. HIPS will absorb moisture; thereby affecting the dimensional tolerances of your 3D printer filament. Use airtight storage containers, buckets, or zip lock bags to keep the material free from humidity.
