Is there a difference between polystyrene and Styrofoam?

Polystyrene is made from styrene monomers, which are derived from petroleum. Styrofoam is a brand of expanded polystyrene foam that is commonly used for insulation and packaging.

The foam is produced by heating and expanding tiny beads of polystyrene with steam.

What is the most common type of polystyrene?

Solid or rigid form: this polystyrene type is transparent, rigid, brittle, and moderately strong in its unmodified state.

Foam form: the most notable use of polystyrene is in a foam form, also known as Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). Film Form: films made from polystyrene are transparent, durable, and printable.
