About Polystyrene Sheets

Polystyrene sheets make for great packing material, insulation, and even crafting supplies. Many polystyrene sheets are made from expanded polystyrene, or EPS, which is a lightweight foam and powerful insulator frequently used for disposable food containers and beverage cups. Polystyrene sheets can be readily cut to any size or shape, whether you are wedging them into a box to keep your valuables safe or preparing to line a bare concrete wall. They also take well to a variety of adhesives and even paint. These sheets come in a variety of sizes depending on your needs. You will also find different thicknesses, starting at just 10 mm and increasing to 50 mm or 75 mm. You can also find high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) sheets, which are much more durable and frequently used in model making and vacuum-forming projects. Whatever your intended project, insulating a basement, packing for a move, or some sort of craft project, polystyrene sheets can help you get the job done.
