Eagle Plastics has a team of experts dedicated to providing the highest standards of thermoplastic sheeting to a wide scope of industries and applications. As a leading supplier of thermoplastics, we strive to ensure our service extends beyond just selling. We appreciate that not everyone will know exactly what material they need before coming to us, which is why we work with every customer, assessing their own individual requirements in order to find the perfect thermoplastic for their project. We stock a large variation of thermoplastic sheeting in our warehouse including ABS, Acrylic, PETG, Recycled Polycarbonate and the highly popular High Impact Polystyrene.

High Impact Polystyrene – The Benefits

High Impact Polystyrene sheet material, often known as HIPS sheet material, is a rubber-modified version of General Purpose Polystyrene. The addition of rubber makes an extremely strong and durable thermoplastic, which can be used in a number of different industries. Sheets of polystyrene have a high impact strength and are easily fabricated and vacuum formed making it one of the most versatile thermoplastics on the market. HIPS can be easily painted due to its amorphous properties which means it is the ideal thermoplastic for marketing projects such as Point of Sale displays and promotional signs. Sheets of polystyrene are also often used in applications that need flexibility, machinability and impact resistance such as model making and the automotive industry. Being shatter-proof means the thermoplastic is widely used in the product packaging industry too.
