History,

Ray McIntire, scientist from Dow Chemical Company, accidentally invented foamed polystyrene or Styrofoam. McIntire tried to make a new rubber-like polymer by combining styrene with isobutylene, a volatile liquid, under pressure. The result was foam polystyrene with bubble, 30 times lighter than regular polystyrene. The Dow Chemical Company introduced Styrofoam products to the United State in 1954. (Friend, 2005)
