Polystyrene Family in Our Daily Life

Mentioned polystyrene, people may not be familiar with it. But when it comes to disposable lunch boxes, plastic bags, plastic fish boxes, white boxes, I am sure you have seen and contacted, they are made from polystyrene. In daily life, the polystyrene has become an indispensable good helper.

Polystyrene is a colorless, transparent thermoplastic, has wide application in everyday life, is an indispensable material in modern industry.

Expanded polystyrene (commonly known as Styrofoam, EPS) is more common. EPS is a lightweight polymer materials, sound absorbing, sound insulation, heat insulation effect, hollow floor used EPS material in new construction method. Adding polystyrene blowing agent and then heating, the blowing agent will soften and produce gas, polystyrene foam became into a rigid closed cell structure. This uniform closed cavity structure makes EPS have a small water absorption, excellent dielectric properties, light weight and high mechanical strength and other characteristics. With the increasing amount of waste EPS foam, GREENMAX recycling machine can provide a professional polystyrene recycling solution.

High impact polystyrene (HIPS) has a high impact properties, it can be made by adding poly butyl rubber pellets in polystyrene production. The wide range of applications of HIPS products includes home appliances shell, electrical appliances, instruments and accessories, and other aspects.

Styrene acrylonitrile (San) has good chemical stability, highly transparent, is a colorless, transparent polypropylene-based plastic, having a high mechanical strength, is widely used in electric (jack, casing, etc.).

Acrylonitrile - Butadiene - Styrene (ABS) are butadiene and styrene, has high strength and low quality. ABS resin has applications in many fields, the largest applications are the automotive, electronics and building materials.

SAB thermoplastic rubber has a wear-resistant polystyrene and polybutadiene characteristics, therefore has the advantage of incomparable general rubber, often used to make rubber tires and other wear-resistant components.
