Polystyrene (a.k.a. PS, Thermocol) is a high molecular weight polymer produced from monomer styrene. PS is a hard, rigid and highly transparent material, with good chemical resistance. It has a wide range of applications, being therefore one of the most produced polymers worldwide. The most commercialized form of polystyrene is General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS). The polymer can be easily processed by injection molding, extrusion or thermoforming.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polystyrene production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
