HIPS-X

High impact resistance HIPS-X Filament

Spectrum HIPS–X is a consumable support material designed for additive manufacturing with the FDM/FFF technology. It is usually used as support for components manufactured with ABS, where HIPS-X supports are dissolved in the citric acid solution (D–Limonene) upon completion of the manufacturing process. Further, you can use Spectrum HIPS–X as a base material for the manufacturing of components which are required to have a reduced processing shrinkage as compared to ABS.

The material shows a high impact and compression resistance. It also enables you to obtain matte surfaces with a reduced layer visibility. Much like ABS, HIPS-X allows for mechanical treatments such as grinding, turning, milling etc. The low hardness of printed items makes it easy to separate material sections with sharp tools.

  • possibility of mechanical treatment (drilling, turning, milling or grinding)
  • high impact resistance
  • energy absorption and dissipation capabilities
  • light
  • good for large prints
  • fully soluble in D-Limonene
Applications:
  • support material for ABS
  • industrial applications which require impact resistant components or components with a capability for partial energy dissipation
  • concept and demo prototyping of designed finished and semi-finished products
  • packaging
Mainly used as a support material, Spectrum HIPS–X is also designed for industrial applications which require impact resistant components or components with a capability for partial energy dissipation. Due to its low hardness, HIPS–X may be used in arts, specifically in sculpture.
