Polystyrene- most useful material

By Johnson Subscribe to RSS | February 4th 2012 | Views:

Society is becoming more and more developed. The rate of development is so fast that people sparingly get time to do leisure things. So this brings an urge to make things more and easier. Fast food is the best example of this urge. Now we don’t want to cook meals or waste time in buying groceries, but simply eat it. This urge has also taken over many other fields. Polystyrene is most prominent invention of this rapidly developing society.

The search for convenience has brought us in the world of use and throw, one time use, ready to serve, long lasting, etc. You may have never noticed but most of our convenience items are made up of Styrofoam or polystyrene. Disposable plates, glasses, trays for an instant party or packaging cushion for our instant home delivery item.

Polystyrene was invented many years back and now it is available in innumerable forms. We often fail to realize the number of polystyrene products around us. Not only in our office or industry, it has become very common in homes and restaurants. House wives have switched to disposable plates to avoid the tedious dish washing after a rocking party. The various decorative elements like the “Happy Birthday” logo in a birthday party, the balls on the Christmas tree or the scary ghost outside the local store before Halloween, all are made up of polystyrene.

A very new use of Polystyrene has also emerged in the market. Latest trends in interior designing have replaced the crown modeling done with plasters and clays. The new material that is used for crown modeling is polystyrene. The reason behind this switch over is the cost effectiveness of this material. Polystyrene is cheaper than any other material that can be used for it. It is also very light in weight, hence can be easier to install. Cutting and shaping polystyrene is also very easy. Apart from the ceilings, polystyrene is also used to insulate the walls and floors to enhance the energy efficiency of the house.

Polystyrene has also made it way to the big screen. Please don’t take me wrong. I mean now we can see polystyrene products in movies and theatres as well. Theatre props are usually made of Styrofoam. It is much easier than gathering original props, and they can easily be carried from one place to another. It forms a vital part of action sequences and stunts as breaking things is not as easy as it appears in the movies.

College projects and industrial models are also made up of polystyrene. It finds it places in most of the models because it can be cut and molded into any desired shapes easily. Wedding decorations also depends on polystyrene for most of its props.

I guess I have to stop here, because I will occupy the complete directory if I keep listing the benefits of polystyrene. Let me redirect you to one of the leading manufacturers of Polystyrene: to admire the vast usability of this miracle.
