PS(Polystyrene)

Description

PS resin which is made by polymerization of styrene monomer, is a key intermediate used in home electronics, packaging, and other products. It is divided into GPPS (General Purpose Polystyrene) and HIPS(High Impact Polystyrene). GPPS has excellent mechanical properties, transparency, heat resistance, moldability, and coloration. It is a non-toxic resin that generates only a small amount of gas during the molding process. HIPS is made by dissolving the rubber in a styrene monomer and then polymerizing the styrene. HIPS retains higher rubber content from 5 to 15% to increase impact strength, thus making it useful for products requiring such properties.

Application

GPPS

  • Inj- Disposable cup, Transparent part of home appliance

HIPS

  • Home appliance housing, Refrigerator inner liner, Yogurt cup
