People’s awareness of reducing the polystyrene products application

It is known to many people that polystyrene plastic particles usually are used just one time, millions of tons of white trash were put into nature after used which cannot rot and be transformed. And the trash can’t degrade and disappear on its own. So on the one hand, it results in serious environmental pollution, on the other hand it is also a waste of valuable non-renewable resources. Many science researchers around the world have focused on how to recycle and reuse waste polystyrene foam effectively.
Polystyrene plastic is one of the most widely used plastics in the world today because of its good water resistance property, good thermal insulation, excellent insulativity, low moisture absorption and relatively strong shock strength. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic polymer, synthesized by polymerization of styrene monomer. Polystyrene melts when heated above its melting temperature and becomes rigid when allowed to cool.

 


Polystyrene can be subjected to use extrusion, molding and vacuum forming techniques to manufacture various components. Expandable polystyrene (EPS) is a type of polystyrene that is expanded with the help of air, and fused together to form blocks.
Rising demand from the packaging industry in many countries is anticipated to boost the global polystyrene & EPS market. Increasing demand for polystyrene & EPS from consumer electronics and electronic components is further estimated to drive the global polystyrene & EPS market. However, volatility in prices of raw materials is projected to hamper market growth in the near future. Furthermore, availability of high performance substitutes is likely to act as a major restraining factor for the market.

 


At the present, the methods for recycling waste polystyrene foam are crushing and melting. Then through renewable granulation, it becomes another material particles. After added the relevant non-auxiliary agent into it,polystyrene foam will be processed into another kind of material.
More and more waste EPS products are displayed because of the applications of EPS. In order to deal with so many waste EPS products and reduce the white pollution, INTCO is professional in designing and manufacturing Styrofoam recycling machine system and providing a series of waste foam recycling solutions.
