Why use Polystyrene (#6)?

Polystyrene gets the job done. Polystyrene is extremely versatile. Polystyrene is 100% recyclable.

Only about 4% of expanded polystyrene foam packaging is polystyrene, the rest is air. Polystyrene is the ideal material for protecting sensitive products during transport and storage.

 

Polystyrene does not absorb water or vapour, so your fresh food stays fresher longer with less need for preservatives. Polystyrene offers excellent insulation properties and keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for extended periods.

 

Polystyrene protects food from bacteria and moisture thereby guaranteeing quality, a longer shelf-life and preventing the spread of disease.

 

Polystyrene is a lightweight material that provides savings in fuel consumption thus reducing the environmental impact of transporting products.
