KODAK 3D Printing Filament HIPS

High Impact Polystyrene


  • A filament with some of the best characteristics of PLA and ABS.
  • High-resolution smooth surfaces.
  • Great interlayer adhesion.
  • Resistance to shattering, low warp.
  • It can be used as a dissolvable support material for ABS (soluble with limonene, citric acid).

Main applications:

Impact resistance and support material.



HIPS is a good electrical insulator and can be sanded and painted with acrylic paints. It is a good alternative to classic PLA for models. It has medium flexibility and medium-low temperature resistance. The raw material complies with section 201(s) of the US Federal, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and Parts 182, 184 and 186 of the Food Additive Regulations.
