Brominated Polystyrene is a type of polystyrene that has been modified with bromine atoms. It is a flame retardant polymer used in various applications where fire safety is a concern. This is typically created by chemically bonding bromine atoms to the polystyrene backbone, resulting in a material with improved fire resistance properties. The addition of bromine to polystyrene enhances its ability to withstand ignition and reduce flame spread. Brominated Polystyrene is commonly used in electronics, construction materials, automotive components, and other products where flame retardancy is required. It is often used as a replacement for brominated flame retardants that are being phased out due to environmental and health concerns.
