Fugitive Gorilla seeks refuge in Montana

In a blog post, in May, we told you about a incident where a ‘Gorilla’ went into a convenience store and stole a large polystyrene display banana on their second attempt. We know that you have been waiting on the edge of your seat to hear a conclusion to the story. Well, all we can [...]

And now for something completely different

After speaking with a customer recently, I came to the conclusion that it was time that we featured some of the work that we create for use in the construction sector. The client was under the impression that all we made were signs and point of sale display props; he was quite surprised when I [...]

Making it Big

This article has been gathering dust in my draft folder for a number of months. It was getting to the stage where I was going to delete the story as some missing parts never materialised… Well they did today, only 3 months late and on the wrong side of the world. Mr Pat Phelan, from [...]

Making an impression.

First impressions can be important, as once that moment passes it can never be retrieved. Sometimes you only have seconds or even milli-seconds to catch the attention of your audience, so whatever you do has to be good. We like to call it a Wow factor and we are lucky that we can create this [...]

Coffee to go

This is going to be a caffeine fuelled post and it’s not because I’ve been drinking espresso’s all afternoon. I am going to try and write about three coffee related items and show how they are linked to polystyrene. That would be enough to drive anyone to coffee, so we might as well make it [...]

It’s not difficult to see as they pay attention to every detail, this extends as far as the packaging that the products comes [...]

Nevermind Transformers, the Styrobots are here!

The launch of the second Transformers film ‘Revenge of the fallen’ is upon us, starring Shia Lebeouf (Sam Witwicky) and Megan Fox (Mikaela Banes) and featuring a cast of computer-generated Autobots and Decepticons, which are giant transforming robots / machines. The Decepticons did attempt, in the original film, to take control of the earth but [...]

Going ape for Styrofoam bananas ??

The recession must be hitting hard in America as people are turning to desperate measures to make ends meet. But we can’t understand the logic behind this gorilla-suited woman stealing display bananas made from Styrofoam. No, it’s not an April fool prank but something very weird and unusual. (Via Fox11 online) So why would you [...]

Polystyrene protection at 180mph

Polystyrene or Styrofoam is often most recognisable when it is used as a packaging material, whether it be for fast food containers or moulded protective pieces around DVD players and other electrical goods. It is widely-used because it is lightweight, inexpensive and can act as a shock absorber and insulator. Some of these properties may [...]

A ‘Back to the Future’ solution for Polystyrene recycling.

Humankind: an amazing species that has evolved over millions of years from simple and humble beginnings into highly developed mammals. So how did we do it? Well one way is by using our senses to discover new foods, places, using tools and implements. Evolution, however, isn’t problem free e.g. poisonous mushrooms; how did we know [...]
