PS Plastic Material Properties

Polystyrene is a non-toxic hydrocarbon polymer that is solid at room temperature and can also be made into a foam material. Polystyrene can be a thermoplastic or thermoset material depending on its polymeric arrangement. Pure polystyrene is colorless and hard but can add various colors, it has a relatively low melting point, PS plastic is easy to machine and electrically insulative, and also resistant to water, shock, acids, and bacteria. There are two popular types of solid polystyrene: High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) and General-purpose polystyrene (GPPS).

Density Flexural modulus Ultimate tensile strength Impact strength Elongation at Break
0.96 – 1.05g/cm^3 1930 MPa 28 MPa 107 J/m 55%

What are the Common Manufacturing Processes for Polystyrene Plastic?

3D Printing

3D printers produce three-dimensional items directly from CAD models by building material in layers until a complete physical part is generated. These parts can then be removed from the printer and used in other applications.

CNC machining

The removal of material during CNC machining is accomplished by the use of a subtractive process that can involve either a spinning tool and a fixed part or a spinning part with a fixed tool. Milling and turning are two examples of computer-controlled subtractive processes that are included in CNC machining.

Injection molding

Molten thermoplastic material is injected into a mold during the process of injection molding. It is by far the most used method for the production of plastic components in large quantities. The production of very complicated parts is possible using injection molding; however, some geometries will result in a large increase in cost. When it comes to injection molded parts, polystyrene is by far the most common type of plastic utilized. Injection molding can be used to create both solid and foam forms of polystyrene.
