Stryon is Westlake Plastics’ family of Polystyrene (PS). Stryon is a versatile material used to make a wide variety of consumer products. Stryon is an amorphous thermoplastic, used in lower heat applications. It is easy to process, and it offers high impact strength and stiffness. Stryon is often specified for low-strength structural applications when impact resistance, machinability, and low cost are required.
Stryon CL is a rigid plastic that is often used in products that require clarity, such as food packaging and laboratory ware. Stryon CL is a cost-effective, versatile thermoplastic that is known for being lightweight and easy to print on. For this reason, it is a great choice for POP display and indoor signage, among other common displays.
Stryon HI is the high-impact version that is opaque and used to make components such as appliances, electronics, automobile parts, and toys, While Styron CL is lightweight, clear, and brittle; Styron HI benefits from rubber additives to make it more flexible and impact-resistant. Though it has an opaque appearance, it can be painted, labeled, and fabricated with ease.
