dissolving of EPS  

Posted by Han Bakker on February 14, 2005 at 15:55:45:

EPS or expanded polystyrene is resistant against solutions of methanol and sillicon oils. It has however a limited resistance against paraffin oil, diesel oil or vegetable oil. But how about its resistance against a solution containing up to 2300 micograms/L naphtalene and 1800 micrograms/L mineral oil (C10-C22)?

(This questions is related to the use of expanded polystyrene EPS in road construction in an area with heavy carbon/ and fluorcarbon groundwater pollution)
