Plastic , polymeric material that has the capability of being molded or shaped, usually by the application of heat and pressure. This property of plasticity , often found in combination with other special properties such as low density , low electrical conductivity, transparency, and toughness, allows plastics to be made into a great variety of products. These include tough and lightweight beverage bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate PET , flexible garden hoses made of polyvinyl chloride PVC , insulating food containers made of foamed polystyrene , and shatterproof windows made of polymethyl methacrylate. In this article a brief review of the essential properties of plastics is provided, followed by a more detailed description of their processing into useful products and subsequent recycling. For a fuller understanding of the materials from which plastics are made, see chemistry of industrial polymers. Many of the chemical names of the polymers employed as plastics have become familiar to consumers, although some are better known by their abbreviations or trade names. Thus, polyethylene terephthalate and polyvinyl chloride are commonly referred to as PET and PVC, while foamed polystyrene and polymethyl methacrylate are known by their trademarked names, Styrofoam and Plexiglas or Perspex.

The thermal and mechanical properties of polystyrene PS modified with esters derivatives of 3-phenylpropenol were investigated. The influence of the content of esters on the glass transition temperature, dynamic mechanical properties, flexural properties, hardness and thermal stability of PS has been examined. The obtained results proved that esters derivatives of 3-phenylpropenol can find their place as an environmentally friendly, external plasticizers of PS.

This work studied the properties of lightweight concretes with addition of expanded polystyrene EPS for structural walls applications. EPS for being a material produced on a large scale and has low density, produces a large volume of waste. These residues are not reused, especially in Brazil. Given that, in order to perform a comparison of the performance of concrete with adding of EPS in pearls and recycled, it have been manufactured five concrete types, a control without addition of EPS and four other samples with two different percentages of EPS. The mechanical compressive strength and physical density, voids content, absorption by immersion and capillarity properties were evaluated, and tests were carried out to evaluate the thermal performance of the mixtures studied.


General-purpose polystyrene is clear, hard, and rather brittle. It is an inexpensive resin per unit weight. It is a rather poor barrier to oxygen and water vapour and has a relatively low melting point. Uses include protective packaging such as packing peanuts and in the jewel cases used for storage of optical discs such as CDs and occasionally DVDs , containers, lids, bottles, trays, tumblers, disposable cutlery [6] and in the making of models. It becomes rigid again when cooled. This temperature behaviour is exploited for extrusion as in Styrofoam and also for molding and vacuum forming , since it can be cast into molds with fine detail. Under ASTM standards, polystyrene is regarded as not biodegradable.

Mass production of tires and their subsequent storage after use are serious environmental problems that are being tried to be solved in various ways. One of these is the mixture of these old used tires [ground rubber tire GTR ] with various thermoplastic and thermostable polymers. The present work aimed to obtain materials suitable for the electric industry from the mixture of polystyrene PS with old used tires GTR , starting from the requirement of minimum recycling costs, i. All these data have allowed an accurate characterization of the properties of the new compounds, and according to these results, possible electrical applications have been explored.

Production and characterization of the mechanical and thermal properties of expanded polystyrene with recycled material 1. Conclusiones: Los materiales fabricados pueden emplearse industrialmente para producir embalaje, casetones y esferas, entre otros. Methodology: The mechanical properties of these materials were evaluated by testing compressive strength and flexural, impact, and thermal properties using the techniques of differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry. Hot plate and steady state temperature profiles in a non-steady state were simulated with Octave 3. Results: The results obtained for the three mixtures showed little variation in the properties of compression, impact, glass transition, and thermal diffusivity with respect to the reference material.

Беккер внимательно слушал ее рассказ.

ГЛАВА 32 Дэвид Беккер остановился в коридоре у номера 301. Он знал, что где-то за этой витиеватой резной дверью находится кольцо. Вопрос национальной безопасности.

 Долгая история. Чутье подсказывало Беккеру, что это открытие не сулит ему ничего хорошего. - Все равно расскажите.

Разве Дэвид тебе не объяснил. Она была слишком возбуждена, чтобы ответить. Испания. Так вот почему Дэвид отложил поездку в Стоун-Мэнор.

Аккуратно, предмет за предметом, перетряхнул одежду.

    Polystyrene PS is a clear, amorphous, nonpolar commodity thermoplastic that is easy to process and that can be easily converted into a large number of semi-finished products like foams, films, and sheets.
