PS (Polystyrene):

Polystyrene (PS) is a synthetic aromatic polymer made from the monomer styrene. General-purpose polystyrene is clear, hard, and rather brittle, semi rigid, low gloss, resistance to heat, chemicals, grease and oil, versatile barrier to moisture.

Product Data Sheet:


It is used for foam packaging, insulation, consumer goods, medical applications, electronics packaging, stationary & office supplies, automotive industry, horticulture, novelties & promotional items, arts & crafts materials.



General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) is a transparent, rigid, and versatile thermoplastic polymer that finds applications in a variety of industries. GPPS is known for its optical clarity, ease of processing, and affordability, but it is relatively brittle compared to some other plastics.

Some common uses of GPPS: Containers and Lids, Cups and Plates, Laboratory Ware, Transparent Stationery, Toys and Novelties, Display Items, Housings and Casings, Lighting Fixtures, Automotive Applications, Appliance Parts


High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a versatile and impact-resistant thermoplastic polymer. It is a modified version of general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS) with the addition of rubber or other impact modifiers to enhance toughness. HIPS is valued for its affordability, ease of processing, and versatility in a range of applications. Its impact resistance makes it suitable for products that require a degree of toughness, and its transparency allows for applications where visibility or clarity is important.
