BASF developed a new polystyrene (PS) grade said to be particularly suitable for manufacturing refrigerator linings. PS ESCRimo was developed to be more resistant to stress crack formation than its predecessor on the market, the PS 2710 grade, and its notched impact strength (Charpy) is said to be almost 50% higher.
The supplier says that even a mature product class like polystyrene remains the focus of its ongoing upgrading efforts. www.basf.com
