High impact polystyrene sheet
General purpose polystyrene is a transparent, well-painted, easily recyclable material. Has good strength properties, transparency and excellent appearance. Applies to the products of technical purpose and goods of national consumption. Has high strength and good dielectric properties, is chemically resistant to alkalis and acids, except nitric and acetic. Not resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Easily molded and processed by any mechanical properties, has a high frost resistance and moisture resistance. Is an excellent insulator.
Articles made of polystyrene are widely used in various fields: consumer goods, medical, electrical, details of refrigerators and various containers, and containers.
The excellent formability of polystyrene allows you to create an exclusive water-based product design and advertising. Widely used material in the manufacture of commercial and exhibition equipment.
In printing — for the manufacture of selfcontrol, crankbaits and other means of promotion of goods; business cards.
In the construction of the polystyrene sheets are used as finishing materials in the design of trading floors of shops, interiors of offices and other public spaces. Gorgeous appearance, high mechanical properties, wide range of colors of this plastic attracts designers in the design of various entertainment events.
Features PS (high-impact polystyrene)
Plastic sheets from high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) combine good impact strength, improved crack resistance, low temperature resistance, good water resistance, excellent formability and easy machinability. Surface aspect of sheets can be gloss, mat, smooth and embossed. A co-extrusion method in sheet manufacturing makes possible to join two layers of different colors or add a top layer of gloss surface, as well as to manufacture sheets of different light transmission rate (polystyrene for lighting purposes). UV-stability of sheets can be also provided. In order to preserve gloss surface quality, a protective thermoforming film is applied which can be easily removed from the sheet or part formed.
|Unit||Test method, ISO||Values|
|Tensile strain at break||%||527||25|
|Charpy unnotched impact strength||23°C||kJ/m2||179/1ep||35|
|Charpy unnotched impact strength||-30°C||kJ/m2||179/1ep||30|
|Charpy notch impact strength||23°C||kJ/m2||179/1epA||3|
|Heat deflection temperature (HDT)||1.8 MPa||°C||75-2Ae||65|
|Vicat softening temperature||50H/50°C||°C||306/B50||84|
All above values apply to the state of thermoplastics immediately after extrusion, with no aging effect.
resistance to alkalies and acids (except nitric and acetic acids), to oils and fats; does not dissolve in lower alcohols, aliphatic hydrocarbons, phenols, ethers. It can be dissolved in intrinsic monomers, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, esters, acetone
good impact strength in a wide temperature range (from -30 to -40°C)
within — 40 °C to +65-70°C
- cementing (by solvent-based adhesives (toluene, dichloromethane, butyl acetate), containing up to 20% polystyrene)
- welding (thermal, thermal impulse, ultrasonic)

SCOPE OF APPLICATION
construction, production of outdoor advertisement, parts of household & industrial refrigerators, retail/store equipment, cases/housings of devices and instrumentation, bath screens. Sheets from lighting polystyrene can be used for making light diffusers and lightboxes. Sheets of 0.48 and 0.7 mm thickness with mat surface are used for lithographic (offset) printing and magnet card manufacture.
