High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), often referred to as styrene, is an easily machined and fabricated impact-resistant, versatile, and economical plastic. HIPS is often the preferred material for low strength structural applications. Its excellent dimensional stability, an affinity for paint, and glue make it an obvious choice for machining pre-production prototypes.
BASF began to manufacture polystyrene in 1939 for commercial use. Since then, high impact styrene plastic has been used in a wide variety of applications including countertop POP displays and indoor signs, since it is easily thermoformable; excellent for vacuum forming.
