General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS)

Polystyrenes are highly versatile, relatively cheap materials that can be used in a wide range of applications. Extrusion and injection molding continue to be the predominant processing technologies for PS. They fall into three basic categories, general purpose (GPPS), high impact (HIPS) and medium impact (MIPS). All three categories are offered by Jamplast.

GPPS is a clear polymer that exhibits high stiffness, good dimensional stability, low specific gravity and excellent electrical properties. It offers several advantages over other polymers because of its clarity and ease of processing, both of which are due to its amorphous nature. GPPS has a relatively low cost and is forgiving when processed at high production rates
