    Hi Ian, Yes the sheet is opaque so light doesn’t come through. In theory you could use this for blacking out windows, alternatively you could also use the black polypropylene sheet as this is also opaque, it also comes in a large sheet size, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/materials/polypropylene.html

    Hi Cameron, I have looked into if the HIPs is food safe, our supplier has stated the following, ‘All our HIPS sheet is produced using polymers suitable for food contact and the pigments/masterbatches are also suitable for food contact. Although suitable and safe in the Health and safety respect, some foodstuffs may adversely affect HIPS and also some aggressive cleaning chemicals if used to clean multi-use items.’ I hope this helps.

    Hi Alan, We don’t state that HIPs is suitable for laser cutting and our supplier also doesn’t state this. However there are articles on the web about cutting HIPs, we just unfortunately can’t comment on these.
