Put your HIPS into it

Vistar® is the latest addition to Matra Plast’s line of digital substrate products. It is made from high impact polystyrene (HIPS), which means that it is cost-effective, tough and ideal for a host of applications, especially signage.

A high impact polystyrene solid sheet (HIPS) is a thermoplastic, meaning that it softens when heated and hardens upon cooling. Its outstanding property is its malleability, the fact that it can be moulded into a wide variety of configurations, without losing its inherent properties. Vistar® is manufactured to exacting tolerances. It can be relied upon for consistent gauge, width and length, consistent resin on every order, consistent color both in shade and density, and consistent high-level Corona Treatment. Not to mention the fact that it is Food Contact Compliant. It is ideal for digital and silk screen printing, with a host of applications in the graphic signage, industrial and OEM sectors.

Vistar® is the latest addition to Matra Plast’s plastic sheet line-up, available in bulk sheet and roll forms. There are many advantages to using Vistar® HIPS, including all digital grade production, square sheets, good low temperature resistance and food contact compliant.
