General Purpose Resins

Americas Styrenics general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) resins offer exceptional clarity, attractive light-transmission properties, chemical resistance and radiation stability make them well suited for a variety of applications.

GPPS is used in injection-molding and extrusion applications, and for making extruded and expanded foam products. GPPS is a versatile thermoplastic polymer that is thermally stable at everyday temperatures. Since GPPS Resins are usually clear and colorless, they can be blended with additives to affect processing ability, color, or other characteristics. They can be processed by many different molding techniques due to their ability to soften when heated. 

Major applications include disposable cutlery, cups, CD cases, medical supplies, insulation, and refrigerator parts.
