Styrene, also known as ethenylbenzene, vinyl benzene, and phenylethene, is an organic compound with the chemical formula C6H5CH=CH2. This derivative of benzene is a colorless oily liquid that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell, although high concentrations have a less pleasant odor. Styrene is the precursor to polystyrene and several copolymers.
However, styrene also occurs in the environment and is a natural component of many common foods, such as coffee, strawberries and cinnamon. Some people confuse styrene, which is a liquid, with polystyrene, which is a solid plastic made from polymerized styrene. Styrene and polystyrene are fundamentally different.
Kinds of polystyrene are General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS), High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), Extruded polystyrene (XPS), Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
Homopolymer is the simplest types of polymers which is consist on polymer chains made up of repetitive units same as GPPS.
Copolymer is formed from polymerization of two or more different and suitable monomers, same as HIPSS.
Exporting Styrene and Polystyrene is one of our proficiency. We can do it for you in the shortest time possible, Also Iran has a capacity to increase the volume of Styrene and polystyrene so Iran’s projects in this field is open for investors.
