Polystyreneis a hydrocarbon polymer typically available in either solid or foam form. This plastic is easy to mold and machine, and is best known for its impressive insulative properties.
Due to its versatility, polystyrene is used to make a wide range of products including food packaging, lab equipment, home and building insulation, egg cartons, disposable cups and cutlery, CD cases, and much more.
Properties of Polystyrene
- Floats in water
- Low thermal conductivity
- High compressive strength
- Non-toxic and chemically inert
- Good shock resistance
- Good water resistance
- Good resistance to mildew, bacteria and many acids
Mills use rotating tools to cut material into almost any 3D shape. CNC Mills can work with tight tolerances.
Waterjets mainly cut sheet material into 2D parts using a high-pressure stream of water and abrasive. Waterjet cutting is suitable for most materials and yields clean edges.
CNC Lathes feed cutting tools into rotating material. Turning is mainly used to produce precise, cylindrical parts.
Injection Molding produces parts by forcing molten polymer material into a mold. It’s the most economical process for producing high volumes of plastic parts.
After manufacturing, parts may require additional processing. Secondary services include CNC bending, grinding, tapping, knurling and more.
