It is obtained through an extrusion process of one or more layers of SHOCK-PROOF POLYSTYRENE (HIPS) with variable mechanical properties according to the customer’s requirements. The wide range of raw materials used allows satisfying every requirement blending the properties of the best SHOCK-PROOF POLYSTYRENE (HIPS – excellent resistance to impact, excellent elasticity) with those of CRYSTAL POLYSTYRENE (GPPS – low resistance to impact but excellent rigidity). It is extruded in a vast range of colours, one- and two-colour, glossy, semi-glossy and matt, smooth. If requested, it can be produced in compliance with the requirements of DIRECTIVE 2002/72/EC.
This material is used mainly for articles designed for the Dairy field, for which we also have the PS FOAM (semi expanded) version that complies with the Directive regarding “Plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food” and subsequent amendments, and which is accompanied by the relative declaration of suitability.
