Polystyrenes are solid plastic-like materials used extensively in food packaging, laboratory ware, etc. Other than packaging and laboratory uses these constituents are also used as decorative objects. By adding colorants, extracts, and even with other plastics, polystyrene can be effectively used as an ornamental implement. Styrofoam balls, snowman crafts, and other kinds of hangings made of polystyrene are widely seen in Christmas decorations.
Polystyrene offers a wide range of ideas for creating crafts and ornamental things. The durability and lightweight features of these substances are a good option for making hangings and other decorative belongings for Christmas. As we know, Christmas is an occasion of joy and love. By decorating Christmas trees, Jingle bells we add more joy to the festivity.
Polystyrene provides wider ideas for creating attractive Christmas decorations. Styrofoam balls are the major ones. We can decorate Christmas trees with chained Styrofoam balls. Styrofoam balls come in different sizes ranging from small to big. So, it is very suitable for making any kind of decorative stuff including buns(Christmas buns). Styrene balls are durable, and can be colored, painted, glittered, and also pinned with different fabrics and sequences. These materials are appropriate for decorations due to its flimsy and inexpensive traits.
Polystyrene materials are so lightweight, solid, and durable. It is also familiar with being moisture resistant, shock absorption features, thermal and compression resistance traits. Crystal polystyrene or polystyrene homopolymer is a common thermoplastic with colorless and transparent features. This brittle commodity has exceptional gamma radiation confrontation, upright electrical properties. Compared with other plastics, this thermoplastic possesses poor chemical and UV resistance. Because of these characteristic traits polystyrene is hugely used in industries and also in domestic uses. The cost-effectiveness of polystyrene also fosters the extensive use of this thermoplastic in different spaces (domestic and commercial).
Polystyrenes are synthetic aromatic polymers that are made from the monomer styrene. The structure and features offered by these chemical compounds are useful in so many areas, and they are well known as widely used plastics. It contains 95 % air and therefore it is cheap to store or ship.
EPS or Polystyrene are recyclable compounds. Expanded Polystyrene or EPS are non-biodegradable. Because of this, there is a need to recycle this extensively used plastic. EPS are shredded into balls and under high temperature, it is melted and packed as small blocks. Through the proper recycling of EPS, we can prosper sustainable development without polluting the environment. Polystyrene goods are eco-friendly products, that is recycling and reuse is possible. Polystyrene products are widely used as insulators, food packaging, primitive decor for parties, and special occasions.
Polystyrene compounds are durable and lightweight composites suitable for decorative and craft-making without affecting the equilibrium of the environment.
