POLYSTYRENE

Today, polystyrene which is also known as Styrofoam is among the most heavily used commodity thermoplastics. This resin is a petroleum-based plastic made from the styrene monomer. Polystyrene is a light-weight material, about 95% air and has very good insulation properties. High molecular weight thermoplastic resins are generally produced by the free-radical polymerization of styrene monomer which can be initiated by heating alone but more effectively by heating in the presence of free-radical initiator (such as benzoyl peroxide). Typical processing techniques are modified mass polymerization or solution polymerization, suspension polymerization, and expandable beads for foam.

Typical Applications:
Packaging and foodservice products, automotive parts, toys, house wares, appliance parts, wall tiles, radio and TV housings, furniture, floats, and luggage.
