Polystyrene – Styrene fabrication

While styrene comes in a variety of grades including impact resistant and food safe varieties. Most “off the shelf” styrene is high impact (HIS).

Colors are black and white; all other colors are custom run. For injection molding clear variety are available.

Standard sheets are 48 inches X 96 inches no other size are available off the shelf. Off the shelf thickness are from .010 to .250 inch.

The “S” in ABS is styrene.

The sheets are smooth-smooth but unlike ABS’s smooth side, it is a finish sheet suitable for displays or silk screening. Because the sheet is smooth with a soft surface both black and white sheet scratches easily.

Great for vacuum forming and can be trimmed by die cutting of cut with a shear.
