Styrenic Plastics

This chapter on styrenic plastics covers a broad class of polymeric materials of which an important part is styrene. Chemical structures, manufacturers, and trade names, along with typical end uses of the plastics are included besides extensive graphic physical, mechanical, and electrical properties as a function of temperature. Plastics included in this section are acrylonitrile–butadiene–styrene copolymer, polystyrene, high impact polystyrene, styrene–acrylonitrile copolymer, and styrene maleic anhydride.
