HIPS Blister Insert
High Impact Polystyrene HIPS, or Polystyrene (PS) plastic blister inserts is thermoformed to create trays that offer high impact strength and rigidity for product. Popular for packaging products like food or pharmaceuticals, HIPS plastic offers a stable and durable interior structure.
- High impact strength
- Popular for packaging food and pharmaceuticals
HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene), also known as PS (Polystyrene) blister inserts are a thermoplastic material, used for applications in food and pharmaceutical packaging. It offers convenient processing, high impact strength, and rigidity. HIPS is impact and heat resistant making it exceptionally convenient for molding to the shape of your products. Available in a clear or cloudy finish, HIPS is used across a wide range of industries for its durability and cost efficiency for blister inserts.
