Polystyrene Sheets

What are Polystyrene Sheets

Essentially, Polystyrene Sheets are thin layers of material that are based on polystyrene foam. The polystyrene foam is made up of hydrocarbon molecules that come from petroleum. The foam is inserted with the help of air pressure and then it is carefully molded into Polystyrene Sheets. Polystyrene Sheets are the same shape and size of plywood and drywall.
