High Impact Polystyrenes (HIPS)

Polystyrenes are highly versatile, relatively cheap materials that can be used in a wide range of applications. Extrusion and injection molding continue to be the predominant processing technologies for PS. They fall into three basic categories, general purpose (GPPS), high impact (HIPS) and medium impact (MIPS). All three categories are offered by Jamplast.

HIPS is specified for applications requiring more toughness than GPPS can provide.
