What is Polystyrene? 

Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic hydrocarbon polymer produced from the monomer styrene. Polystyrene can exist in both solid, rigid forms and as a foam, and is known for its durability and lightweight properties, it serves as an excellent insulator. 

What are the different types of Polystyrene? 

There are several types of Polystyrene, two of which include General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) and High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS).

What are the qualities of GPPS and HIPS?
General Polystyrene (GPPS) is clear, hard, and widely used for polystyrene food packaging materials due to its excellent insulating properties, while High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) possesses enhanced resistance. Both GPPS and HIPS are widely utilized in manufacturing various consumer goods, including polystyrene packing materials and household items.
