Polystyrene (PS) is a plastic based on styrene, which is also known under the name Styrenics.
PS has high stiffness, with hardness and strength in the medium range. Up to a certain concentration, it is chemically resistant to acids and bases, as well as oils and fats.
Although polystyrene is a rather unfavourable material in terms of electrical insulation, its dielectric properties make it particularly suitable for use in high-frequency technology. In addition, it has good radiation resistance.
PS is mainly used in industry for food packaging or as heat or sound insulation in foamed form. By adding rubber, for example, the impact strength of the material can be increased and it can therefore also be used for housings in the electrical industry.
