School Food Service
When it comes to selecting the best food service packaging products, many
educational food service systems recognise that polystyrene packaging delivers!
No other food service packaging material provides polystyrene's unique combination
of performance, economic, and environmental benefits. Polystyrene food service
packaging is extremely strong yet lightweight, provides excellent insulation,
enhances food service sanitation and contributes to protecting public health.
It is less expensive than many other food service packaging options, and
has less environmental impact during its manufacture and transport than
paperboard food service packaging. more...
A Safer Car Ride for Your Child
Car and booster seats made from styrenic plastics components that meet crash-test
standards have helped reduce the death rate from motor vehicle occupant-related
injuries among children aged 14 and under. Since 1979 in the USA, that death
rate has declined 10% despite a significant increase in vehicle miles travelled.
On the Playground
Children may not be overly concerned with their own safety, but they certainly
know what they like to play with and why. Some styrene-based materials are
chosen for their rigidity and are used in toys, for example, or bicycle
helmets, or the desktop on which children do their homework. Did you know
that the colourful building bricks we have known for years are made using
a styrenic plastic, namely ABS, with enough rigidity for the bricks to fit
into each other strongly and sufficient flexibility for children to be able
to take them apart again?
