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.

- 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)
