PolyRenew® Polystyrene Overview

PolyRenew® Polystyrene is a single pellet product solution containing post-consumer recycled polystyrene product developed for use in foodservice applications containing up to 25% post-consumer recycled polystyrene. PolyRenew performs in a similar manner to AmSty's HHGP 685D and does not require any modifications to a converter's equipment.

The post consumer recycled polystyrene undergoes a complex washing, blending and polymerization process to create PolyRenew. As a single pellet product, PolyRenew maintains traceability and post-consumer recycle material source control for product consistency.

PolyRenew Benefits:
·         Similar physical, mechanic and thermal properties to virgin high-heat general-purpose polystyrene 
·         Low melt flow rate
·         Consistent clarity, process-ability and performance
·         Pellet form with an off-white clarity
·         Brilliant gloss
·         Stiffness in thermoforming and extrusion
·         Suitable for injection molding and extrusion processes
·         Exceptional clarity and attractive light-transmission properties
·         Chemical resistance and radiation stability typical of virgin polystyrene
·         Effective at keeping hot foods hot and cold foods cold
·         Reduces environmental impact
·         Recyclable
