J R Wünsch, BASF AG, Germany
A Rapra Review Report which describes the production of styrene polymers in detail, and then goes on to describe the mechanical properties of styrenic polymers, their electrical properties, and their behaviour in fire. Discussion of key applications touches upon the importance of certain properties, such as barrier properties for food packaging applications, and methods of fabrication. Communications technology represents an increasingly important market for polystyrene, particularly high impact grades, where their mechanical strength and rigidity, dimensional accuracy, hard scratch-resistant surfaces and electrical insulating properties all make them ideal casing materials.
