PS
Thermocol
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.

General Purpose Polystyrene Production | PS E11A

This report presents the economics of General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) production from styrene in the United States, via a typical continuous bulk polymerization process, split into a pre-polymerization and a polymerization step. Both steps are conducted in continuous stirred-tank reactors.

Details: 180 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report PS E11A target a 180 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

High Impact Polystyrene Production | PS E12A

This study presents the economics of High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) production from styrene in the United States, via a typical continuous bulk polymerization process, which occurs in the presence of polybutadiene. The process is split into a pre-polymerization and a polymerization step. The first step is conducted in CSTRs and the second in plug-flow reactors.

Details: 180 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report PS E12A target a 180 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Expandable Polystyrene Production | PS E15A

This study presents the economics of Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) production from styrene in the United States, via a typical batch suspension polymerization process. The tiny spheres of EPS are impregnated with a physical blowing agent.

Details: 150 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   106 pages   From $799
