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.
