ICE-hips Gentle Grey is a high impact polystyrene type of filament.
Outside the 3D-printing world hips is already used often. Polystyrene is one of the most used thermoplastic polymers in the world. Polystyrene is, thanks to its characteristics (hygiene, strength and heat resistance), often used in the food packaging industry, the production of disposable plastic cutlery and CD/DVD covers.
ICE-hips is comparable with ABS thermoplastic filaments on terms of power impact and stiffness. However, ICE-hips is solvable in D-Limonene. This gives you the possibility to use ICE-hips as a main filament and as a support filament.
ICE-hips was tested on following printer:
- Ultimaker 2+
- Ultimaker 2 Extended+
- Felix 3.1
- Felix Pro 1
- Tripodmaker Black Edition
ICE Filaments is a brand of Trideus bvba. We have developed this line of filaments because we want to grant every customers wishes. At Trideus, we can test our filaments with different types of printers, what gives us the advantage develop a line of filaments that doesn’t focus on one printer alone, but that prints high quality prints on all the open source printers in our gamma. Also all the closed source printers that work with reels can use ICE Filaments materials.
