use polystyrene in a sentence.
Any concerns about living surrounded by all that polystyrene blueboard?
I have no experience with this stuff, but: instead of a plastic case, could you carve out 2 blocks of polystyrene foam to exactly contain the equipment, with more temperature-sensitive stuff nearer the middle?
Or will polystyrene burst/disintegrate at such low pressures?
Anyone know what would make a good salt bridge that's semi permeable to na/cl (or how to treat the polystyrene)?
Being hit by one is like being bumped with a bit of polystyrene.
I've been doing some home molding with High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) and with clear PETG.
I'm not particularly bitter - I didn't like them when they were new, disliked them once the birds nibbled the rendered polystyrene off the exterior, and avoided them like the plague once we came to buying houses.
However I just looked at which has the comment, Paper cups may consume more non-renewable resources than cups made of polystyrene foam (whose only significant effluent is pentane).
Most of the gear I used in the capsule was cheap (camera from eBay, Arduino, strip board, polystyrene box).
Lego is ABS which is relitively expensive while most competing bricks are made from polystyrene.
I'm wondering if anyone is creating a stereolithography machine capable of printing structures using materials designed for insulation such as polyurethane/polystyrene foams and silica aerogels (R-value ~10.
The disruptive technology here is really the use of nanoparticle gold instead of etched polystyrene, and the fact that there is the polarization element.
Waves too, can exert torque on small particles (micron sized polystyrene spheres for instance).
