High Impact Polystyrene is a plastic material that is inexpensive and used for structural applications that demand low strength. It is tough and rigid with high impact strength. It is employed in applications where it can be guillotined, punched, routered, or sawn with ease. The manufacturing process of HIPS involves several stages. First, the raw material is taken in a feed tank where it is lubricated, toned, and properly mixed. The next stages of manufacturing are Pre Polymerisation, Polymerisation, Preheating, Devolatilization, Extrusion and Pelletisation, and Product Packing. Raw materials used in the manufacture of HIPS are Styrene, Zinc Stearate, and Liquid Paraffin. Zinc Stearate is used as an Internal Lubricant and Liquid Paraffin is used as a Chain Transition agent.
High Impact Polystyrene has severalunique qualities like strength, hygiene, heat retention, visual appeal, resistance to warm water, etc. which makes it ideal to be used in the Food Industry. Applications include Yogurt Holders, Plastic Cutlery, Salad Bowls, etc. High Impact Polystyrene is also used in several packaging applications like CD cases and refrigerator linings. In the Medical Industry, HIPS is used for making trays. Other items that use HIPS in manufacturing include Printed Graphics, Models and Prototypes, Point-of-Purchase Displays, Shelves, Kiosks, and Fixtures, and Thermoformed Machine Housings and Parts. Major products in the Automotive Industry that use High Impact Polystyrene are Instrument Panels and Fittings, and Gasoline Tanks. A lot of popular consumer products like Appliance Components, Toys, Tv, and Audio-Visual Equipment parts, Recording Tape Cassettes, Bicycle Trailers, and Toys are manufactured using High Impact Polystyrene.
