High impact resistance
Spectrum HIPS–X is a support material designed for additive manufacturing for 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 manufacturing components that require a reduced processing shrinkage as compared to ABS.
Spectrum HIPS-X shows a high impact and compression resistance. It also enables to obtain matte surfaces with 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.
