Description

Polystyrene (PS) is a thermoplastic polymere that is obtained through the polymerization of styrene. Polystyrene is a tough and transparent plastic. Nowadays, polystyrene is among the most heavily used thermoplastics in the industry. We can find 4 principal types of polystyrene: cristal polystyrene (transparent, rigid and brittle), high impact polystyrene (tough and opaque), expanded polystyrene (lightweight) and the extruded polystyrene (similar to the expanded one but denser and waterproof).

Usual uses

Yoghurt pots, plastic cutlery, protective packaging for electronic goods and toys, insulating material, protective packaging,containers, lids, cups, bottles, dairy packaging, meat trays, egg cartons, cassettes, CD, industrial packaging, toys, disposables, shower stalls
