Hips is available in 6 colors. Samples of 50gr. are available (in black only). Make your choice! By selecting a variation, only the products available for that variation will appear in the other 2 variations. Example: by choosing the weight variation 50gr., only the colors and extrusion diameter available for this variation will appear.
HIPS is a polystyrene filament with high impact resistance, easy to print and multifunctional properties. HIPS is an excellent support material in combination with ABS, as it dissolves in D-limonene without affecting ABS. It is very suitable for detailed prints as well as for large objects, as it has very can of retraction. In addition, hips is very light and durable, has good adhesion between layers, can be glued easily and the colors give a matte and smooth surface once the objects are printed. Impact-resistant polystyrene is widely used in model construction.
Directions for use:
– The recommended temperature for the heating mat is ± 65 – 110°C. Despite its low tendency to retract, we recommend using a hook like EZ Stick (for any type of parts), an adhesive such as Kapton (for small parts), glue (for large parts), or even both (Kapton and glue). If you use glue, no need to put it on the entire surface of the part, but only on the contours or areas at risk of retraction.
– The speed with which HIPS dissolves in D-limonene depends on the volume in which you put it and by the movement.
– HIPS can be used on all filament deposition 3D printers.
– Our filaments are filmed, in a cardboard box without window filmed also to ensure the good conservation of the product until the moment of use.
– Store it in a cold and dry environment (15 – 25 ° C), away from light (UV) and under vacuum (to stay dry). We recommend that, after each use, you vacuum it by slipping a silica gel pouch into it and in its box protected from UV. Good storage significantly increases the shelf life of your filament.
