Many of our products are very fundamental chemicals that have a wide amount of uses as a base ingredient. One such fundamental chemical is styrene.

Styrene (CAS 100-42-5) is a popular chemical across several industries that can be used by itself as a monomer, or in combination with other compounds. It has many synonyms, among them ethenyl-benzene, vinyl benzene, phenylethylene, styrol; styrolene, and cinnamene. Styrene occurs naturally in low concentrations in many types of foods. This substance is a clear, colorless to amber, oily liquid, with a sweet, floral odor at low concentrations. Styrene evaporates easily, is soluble in alcohol, ether, methanol, and acetone, and insoluble in water.

Styrene is applied in a host of products from rubber to plastics, insulation, pipes, automobile parts, food containers, and perfumes. It is also found in many foods
as a flavoring ingredient.
Parchem supplies several styrene-based compounds, such as Styrene acrylate copolymer for use in adhesives, Styrene Block Polymer With Isoprene, Hydrogenated (CAS 68648-89-5) used in the production of cosmetics, and many more.
