Axpoly® PS01 3028 – general purpose

Axpoly® PS01 3028 is an off-white impact-resistant polystyrene resin (pastel colours can be added). A clean, single source polymer low in trace additives and with a good surface finish, it is ideal for replacing virgin material in consumer goods such as TV flat-panel display casings.

Axpoly® HIPS52 1009 – stronger general purpose

Axpoly® HIPS52 1009 black high impact polystyrene (HIPS) pellets are suitable for applications needing moderate strength, good stiffness and close dimensional tolerances. Typical uses include higher quality coat hangers, boxes and trays.
