Product Details

Application: Styrene is a derivative of benzene and a monomer which is the basis for a wide variety of polymer compounds. The most common polymers based on styrene are polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and latices, and unsaturated polyester resins (UP resins).  These materials are used in rubber, plastic, insulation, fiberglass, pipes, automobile and boat parts, food containers, and carpet backing.

Compatibility: Styrene will polymerize in the presence of a vinyl group. It is incompatible with heat, light, catalysts, and halogens. Please see SDS for full safety and compatibility information.

Packaging Options: Styrene is typically available in drums, totes, and bulk. Contact us or ask your representative for further information.
