Polystyrene and Copolymers Combine Aesthetics with Technical and Sustainable Properties
The aesthetically and mechanically outstanding properties of styrene polymers are extensively enhanced by different blending partners. New developments include weather-resistant grades, laser surface structuring and fiber reinforcement. The newly founded “Styrenics Circular Solutions” industry association recently started a chemical recycling initiative for polystyrene.
