Polystyrene lids (PS) manufactured by extrusion and thermoforming have been introduced by ANBAO. ANBAO’s PS lids product group, consists of several sizes, shapes and covers practically all the applications. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic, which flows if it is heated above its glass transition temperature, which is roughly 100°C. Polystyrene contains carbon and hydrogen, making it relatively strong, because of its strong intramolecular forces. The PS lids are designed in such a way, to be sealed onto the cup, with a small sipping hole. Not all PS lids actually fit the cups they are designed to fit, which can result in waste and spills.
