GPPS 1460 is a type of general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS), and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from TABRIZ PETROCHEMICAL through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
GPPS 1460 is a type of general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS), which is a crystal-clear polymer that has high transparency, rigidity, hardness, and electrical insulation properties. It is very easy to process using extrusion and injection molding methods. GPPS 1460 has a high heat resistance and molecular weight, which makes it suitable for extrusion and thick-walled injection molding applications. It is especially useful for producing thick sheets by direct inject gassing, where it gives expanded sheets with high mechanical properties. This grade of GPPS also has food contact approval.
Some of the uses of GPPS 1460 are:
- insulation boards (XPS)
- foam sheets for food and fruit trays
- other packaging materials.
In addition, it can be used in various industries such as:
- the packaging industry
- the household and sanitary sector
- the construction industry
- the electrical and electronic industry.
