PS - Polystyrene
Good mechanical properties:
PS is a thermoplastic which presents high impact resistance, high ductility and flexibility, and resistance to breakage at room temperature of 23ºC and at low temperatures of around -25ºC.
Reusable and recyclable:
Our PSs are reusables as long as they have been properly stored in dry environment, in a non-puddled paved area, with a room temperature below 60ºC and protected from UV radiation. If the product is stored in humid environments for long time periods, prior to thermoforming, it is recommended to analyze the sheet and consult our technical team indicating the conditions in which it has been stored.
All our PSs are recyclable, offering to our clients the possibility of removing their industrial waste generated in their production in order to manufacture recycled sheet.
Good print quality:
At Parnoplast, we offer the possibility of apply corona treatment in our PS’ sheets, thus improving the adhesion of inks, adhesives, coatings and laminates on their surface.
Customized products and stock service:
At Parnoplast we provide PS’ sheet in any color (starting from RAL/Pantone or physical sample) or transparent, with the required certifications and in thicknesses from 0.2 mm to 5.8 mm. Sheets are manufactured in different formats (rolls or plate) and finishes (engraved or smooth and gloss or matte), with the possibility of adding a signaling band in the tone requested by the client.
Moreover, we have a stock service of plates of this thermoplastic in white or black standard of Parnoplast, with a delivery commitment that is within 72 hours of order confirmation.
Mono- or multi-material polystyrene:
We are able to make products that meet the specific requirements of each type of final product requested by our clients, whether it is a single-material or multi-material PS (PS/PE, PS/Evoh/PE), with certain technical specifications: anti-rust PS, anti-fog PS, anti-lock PS, etc. or stress cracking PS, product that has improved characteristics of chemical resistance against the injection of polyurethane, oils and fats, being an ideal material for refrigerator interiors.
The PS is a thermoplastic with high resistance to fats, aqueous solutions of weak acids, bleaches, alcohol and some oils. It is not resistant to strong oxidants, so other products such as PE would be recommended for these uses. HIPS’ sheets have high resistance to impact, high ductility and flexibility, and resistance to breakage at room temperatures of 23ºC and at low temperatures of around -25ºC.
Our technical degrees of PS have the UV Resistance Certification, as well as the Flame Resistance Certification under the UL94 standard in their flammability classification systems (UL 94 5VA, 5VB, V-0, V-1, V-2, HB) and specific UNE-EN certifications. Likewise, we can make products that meet the specific requirements of each type of final product requested by our clients (anti-rust PS, anti-fog PS, anti-blocking PS, etc.), such as stress cracking PS, product that has improved characteristics of chemical resistance against the injection of polyurethane, oils and fats, being an ideal material for refrigerator interiors.
This material is mainly present in the agriculture and irrigation systems sectors, in the leisure and POS sector, food, construction, kitchenware, packaging and in the Public Service sector.
This material is odorless and non-toxic. It is safe to reuse, and it is recyclable too.
All our materials are certified for each of the qualities and characteristics requested and they comply the required standards, as well as the measure controls required in each case. Our extrusion plastic’s sheets 100% recycled came from postindustrial recycling that we adapt to specific applications (seedbeds, non-returnable trays, decoration elements, hydrographic pipes, internal supports…).
