1 . Styrene is mainly used as raw material for polystyrene, synthetic rubber, plastics, ion exchange resins, etc.

(1) it is used for the manufacture of polystyrene (PS), expanded polystyrene (EPS), acrylonitrile-styrene copolymers (SAN)

(2) it is used for the production of unsaturated resin (UPR), synthetic resins and protective coatings.

(3) it is used for the production of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), styrene-butadiene latex (SBL), a thermoplastic styrene-butadiene rubber (SBS), and other products.

(4) it is used for the production of polyethylene, styrene plastics (such as ABS, AAS, etc.), raw material resin, medicine and other ion exchange.

2 . The most important use is as monomer for synthetic rubber and plastics, it is used to produce styrene-butadiene rubber, polystyrene, polystyrene foam; it is also used as other copolymerizable monomers to manufacture many different applications of engineering plastics. For copolymerization of acrylonitrile and butadiene can obtain ABS resin, it is widely used for a variety of household appliances and industry; SAN which obtained by copolymerization of acrylonitrile is impact-resistant, bright color resin; SBS which obtained by copolymerization of butadiene is thermoplastic rubber, it is widely used as polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene modifiers and the like. 

3 .  It is used for organic synthesis and synthetic resins.

4 .  It is used for the preparation of copper brightener, and has effect of leveling and bright.

5 .  It is used in table food, cake food, condiments, desserts, snacks, all kinds of canned food, candy. Variety of drinks, especially yogurt, lactic acid bacteria drinks, carbonated drinks and other acidic beverages.

6 . It is used for electron microscopic analysis, organic synthesis.
