Products by product group
Here you find all our products catagorized by the chemical group they belong to. If you know where the product you are looking for belongs to just click on the group and find the product.
Another approach is to look for a product by application or industry where it is used. From both angles the same products are shown.
However, it is of course still posible that you may not find the exact product you are looking for, while it is still very likely that BAX offers you the solution for your search. In that case, please do not hesitate to inform us. Besides the most current products we put up here, it is very much possible that our suppliers can offer and the supply this product the same. All our product pages show, next to a brief introduction, the specifiation sheet (TDS or Sales specifications) Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are avialable on request. )
MONOMERS | STYRENE MONOMER
Styrene (also known as STY, styrene monomer, vinyl benzene, phenylethylene, styrol, styrole, styrolene, cinnamene, styron, and cinnamol) is a clear, colourless to yellow, oily liquid with a sweet smell. It has the formula C8H8 and it evaporates easily and is also flammable.
Polystyrene is used in a huge range of everyday products and can be found in packaging, toys, recreational equipment, consumer electronics and safety helmets, to name but a few.
Styrene is an adaptable synthetic chemical and it is used in the manufacture of materials which are then used to produce an amazing variety of products across a wide range of industries. The most recognisable of the styrene-based materials is polystyrene, with nearly 65 % of all styrene used to produce this.
Other materials produced include acrylonitrile-butadiene styrene (ABS) and styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) resins and account for approximately 16 % of styrene consumption. ABS is a thermoplastic resin that is used in the automobile and electronics industry, while SAN is a co-polymer plastic that is used in a range of consumer goods, packaging, and automotive applications.
Styrene is also utilised in the manufacture of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) elastomers and latexes, and accounts for approximately 6% of consumption. SBR is used in car tyres, and belts and hoses for machinery, as well as in household items such as toys, sponges and floor tiles.
Unsaturated polyester resin (UPR), better known as fibreglass, is another material based on styrene and this also accounts for approximately 6% of styrene consumption.
