Polystyrene (PS)

Polystyrene is a stiff, brittle plastic, which is ideal for low-complexity tasks. Polystyrene is used in many contexts, such as signs and machine parts.

What is polystyrene?


Polystyrene is an amorphous thermoplastic.


We offer polystyrene as sheets of varying thickness in black, white, transparent and a host of other colours.

 

Applications for and properties of polystyrene


Polystyrene is extremely stiff and resistant to many acids and bases. It is moreover electrically insulating.


Polystyrene is best used at room temperature, since its melting temperature is low.


We recommend polystyrene for low-complexity tasks where there is a desire to lower material costs and at the same time ensure an attractive surface.


Polystyrene is often used in the advertising industry, as well as for machine parts or electronic parts.


The material has low impact resistance and can decompose when exposed to UV rays. It is therefore unsuited to outdoor use.


Polystyrene is not resistant to solvents.
