Please Note: eSun has recently changed their filament spool material. You may receive a cardboard spool, instead of the plastic spools depicted above. This move means a more environmentally friendly design to their 3D filament spools which comfortably sit on your 3D printer's standard spool holder for smooth filament feeding.

These 1kg rolls of Black eSUN HIPS 1.75mm filament are made from a very unique plastic known as High Impact Polystyrene. Despite the common perception of polystyrene, this material is infused with strong impact-resistant properties, making it both an easy and durable material to print with.

Some of the main features of this plastic is that it is highly resistant to impact, as well as resistant to warping during the printing process, while being dissolvable with Limonene solvent. These features make it great for printing parts or objects that may be exposed to high impact, but also as dissolvable struts and supports for other materials during prints.

The reason why some 3D Makers choose HIPS Filament over ABS Filament is because of the reduced sagging, as it caters to some of common problems with overhangs. Additionally, it offers similar printing characteristics and temperature requirements as ABS, meaning that it’s easy to learn to print with if you are already experienced in ABS printing.

Typical Applications for Black HIPS 1.75mm 1kg eSUN:

These 1kg rolls of 1.75mm Black HIPS Filament from eSUN are most commonly purchased as an alternative to ABS filament, as it offers many of the unique properties of ABS but with a few extra benefits. Not only is it warp-resistant, but can also be dissolved or finely polished with limonene solvent. This, in the hands of a veteran 3D Maker, is the ideal combination of features to produce amazing results.

Additionally, HIPS is an excellent choice for dual-extruder setups to build struts and supports for plastics that are prone to sagging on overhangs, which can then be easily removed without damaging the prints which they are supporting. The similar temperature requirements also mean that you don’t even need to change the settings if you are printing this alongside ABS, as they share very similar printing characteristics and requirements.

eSUN HIPS Filament - 1.75mm Black

Shenzhen eSUN Industrial Co., Ltd was established in 2002 in Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and has rapidly become one of the leading international suppliers of 3D Printing Filament. They specialise in research, development and production of degradable polymer materials, and have grown their catalogue of filaments to include PLA, ABS, PC, PVA, and a wide range of other polymers and copolymers.

Their list of exclusive filament formulas include unique materials like wood, aluminium, bronze and other materials to create highly specialised filaments that can stretch, bend, be moulded or otherwise behave in very unique ways. Their filaments are also commonly characterised by their absolutely round shape, extremely low diameter tolerance, uniform colours and impressively stable melting points. These characteristics, in combination with their long-term insistent policy of “Best Quality, Reasonable Price” has garnered them a large share of the market, with their reputation commonly preceding them within knowledgeable online and offline 3D Printing communities.

eSUN’s popularity in the industry has also helped to produce sustainable partnerships with many internationally famous 3D Printer manufacturers and distributors, with DIYElectronics having sole distributorship rights to provide their 3D Printing Filaments to South Africa and neighbouring African countries.
