PS – Polystyrene is one of the most widely used kinds of plastic.
Polystyrene is a petroleum-based plastic made from the styrene monomer. PS Moulding is an aromatic polymer made from the aromatic monomer styrene, a liquid hydrocarbon that is commercially manufactured from petroleum by the chemical industry.
Polystyrene is a thermoplastic substance, which is in solid (glassy) state at room temperature, but flows if heated above its glass transition temperature (for molding or extrusion), and becomes solid again when cooled. Pure solid polystyrene is a colorless, hard plastic with limited flexibility. It can be cast into molds with fine detail. Polystyrene can be transparent or can be made to take on various colors.
Picture Frames and Art is committed to promoting the life philosophy of environment protection, health and safety. Polystyrene can be recycled, and has the number “6” as its recycling symbol although the low cost of virgin polystyrene keeps recycling rates low. No known microorganism has yet been shown to biodegrade polystyrene, and it is often abundant as a form of pollution in the outdoor environment, particularly along shores and waterways especially in its low density cellular form.
Why PS Moulding?
Comparing to traditional wood frame material, PS Moulding frame is advanced in its aesthetics, durability and corrosion resistance. It has simpler techniques and fancier impression in surface treatment. Moreover, it has an unexampled advantage in low cost. Consequently it becomes popular with numerous customers both at home and abroad. PS Moulding has rapidly dominated the market of traditional wood framing product and become the new environment-friendly material applied to home decoration, outdoor advertisement as well as fitting and building material industry.
