Ropella Industry Expertise

Polystyrene is the sort of material which runs the gamut from hard, clear, and solid – like the plastic cases that house DVDs – to soft, brittle, and opaque – like the packaging peanuts that protect objects being shipped in packages. Whether extruded, molded, or vacuum formed, polystyrene is essential to products ranging from household necessities to industrial packaging and a wide variety of consumer products.

As with most industries where price-point defines competitive advantage, one of polystyrene’s most advantageous characteristics is that it has a low cost per unit of weight. Its versatility also gives it a distinct advantage; it can be extruded into a hard foam (Styrofoam, for example), or cast into molds with fine details (for example, CD “jewel” cases or plastic model assembly kits).
