Polystyrene (PS) was first produced by Dow in 1938. PS is most attractive when compared on a cost-to-performance basis with other thermoplastics. In general, PS has good dimensional stability, good electrical properties and low mold shrinkage. These properties lead to typical applications such as household, containers, wall tiles, refrigeration and air conditioning parts. Although the market finds excellent use for PS, it has several deficiencies: PS is brittle and has poor impact strength. It also has low heat distortion temperature (HDT) of 85 o C and is readily attacked by many organic solvents such as ketones. However, because of its low cost, PS is an ideal material for high volume production.
