A vinylic polymer of styrene, CH2CHphenyl
An alkane chain of benzene molecules, RCH2CHphenylR
a polymer commonly used in packaging
rigid or semi-rigid thermoplastic with satiny smooth or textured finish Shatterproof; resists most foods, drinks, household acids and oils Burns if subjected to direct flame Can be used for containers, molded products and sheet material Occasional contact with boiling water won't hurt it, but repeated immersions are not recommended Unlimited range of transparent, translucent and opaque colors
Combustible, transparent plastic with high strength and impact resistance Excellent electrical and thermal insulator Widely used for packaging, injection moulding, insulation and lamination
High molecular weight thermoplastic resins produced generally by the free-radical polymerization of styrene monomer [C6H5CHCH2] which can be initiated by heating alone but more effectively by heating in the presence of free-radical initiator (such as benzoyl peroxide [(C6H5CO)2O2] Typical processing techniques are modified mass polymerization or solution polymerization, suspension polymerization, and expandable beads Major markets for polystyrene are in consumer and institutional products, electrical/electronic uses, and building/ construction
A vinylic polymer of styrene, CH{2}CHphenyl
A polymer of styrene that is a rigid, transparent thermoplastic with good physical and electrical insulating properties, used in molded products, foams, and sheet materials
commonly called styrofoam Top
Polystyrene is a very versatile plastic that can be rigid or foamed General purpose polystyrene is clear, hard and brittle It has a relatively low melting point Typical applications include protective packaging, containers, lids, cups, bottles, trays and tumblers (Plastic Packaging Opportunities and Challenges, APC, February 1992)
A rigid thermoplastic polymer that can be molded into objects Also called styrene Also, see ABS
A polymer of styrene used in making molding products In particular, used in the lost foam process
A thermoplastic known for its rigidity, hardness, heat and dimensional stability as well as ease of fabriication
hard, clear thermoplastic polymer of styrene, easily colored and molded for a variety of applications, including structural materials It is a good thermal and electrical insulator and, in the form of expanded foam, extremely buoyant
Plastic with a smooth surface that cracks easily when bent Used for fast food packaging, styrofoam cups and packing peanuts, it takes up a large part of landfill space because of its bulk Often referred to as No 6 Plastic
A thermoplastic known for its rigidity, hardness, heat and dimensional stability, as well as its ease of fabrication
A water-white thermoplastic produced by the polymerization of styrene (vinyl benzene)
Polystyrene is a very light plastic substance used to make containers or to keep things warm, cool, or protected from damage. polystyrene cups. a soft light plastic material that prevents heat or cold from passing through it, used especially for making containers = Styrofoam (poly- + styrene type of chemical compound (19-21 centuries) (from styrax type of plant))
An alkane chain of benzene molecules, RCH{2}CHphenylR
Styrofoam i e Coffee cups etc Recyclable but with very small market- no uses, not economically viable – therefore not commonly recycled
A type of plastic foam used in disposable food containers such as coffee cups, plates, fast food and egg cartons
a polymer of styrene; a rigid transparent thermoplastic; "expanded polystyrene looks like a rigid white foam and is used as packing or insulation
{i} foam-like plastic material used for insulation, styrofoam
A water-white thermoplastics of the vinyl group It needs to be toughened to reduce brittleness and is widely used in injection moulding In the expanded form, it has broad applications in the insulation and packaging fields
a polymer of styrene; a rigid transparent thermoplastic; "expanded polystyrene looks like a rigid white foam and is used as packing or insulation"
A water-white, tough resin made by polymerization of styrene
