Evaluating phase inversion during high-impact polystyrene synthesis by means of rheology
from SPE Plastics Research Online
High-impact polystyrene, or HIPS, is a polymer blend consisting of many tiny rubber particles dispersed in a polystyrene matrix. HIPS is used in a wide range of applications, including household appliances, electric and electronic appliances and automotive parts. Extensive theoretical and experimental research on the synthesis of HIPS has contributed much to our knowledge of how to precisely obtain the desired final properties of the material.
