This is an aromatic liquid hydrocarbon, yellow or colourless, that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell.
It is used as a raw material in the production of numerous types of homopolymers and copolymers with exceptional properties used in a variety of industries.

Examples of applications in which styrene derivatives are usually found::

  • In ubiquitous polystyrene packaging and car components and household appliances.
  • Expanded polystyrene (EPS), widely known as white cork, for use in both packaging and building insulation. 
  • Styrenic rubbers for the manufacture of tyres, hoses, toys, shoe soles or asphalt sheets.
  • ABS and SAN copolymers for manufacturing toys, small appliances, computers, mobile phones, electrical components and medical devices.
  • Unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) used for construction, the hulls of pleasure boats, furniture, impact resistant surfaces (floors, kitchen, bathroom) or in the blades of wind turbines.
