PS - Polystyrene
Polystyrene (PS) is usually obtained by chain polymerization of styrene. It is an aromatic polymer and belongs to the group of thermoplastics. The tacticity describes the position of the phenyl group in the polymer. The position can be random, alternating or even. Depending on which case PS is divided into atactic, syndiotactic and isotactic PS. This determines whether the plastic is amorphous or semi-crystalline. PS is often used for disposable plastics, CD cases etc. © 2017 SUBSTRATEC. All Rights Reserved.
