How many tons do you need?
- Styrene beads are the raw material used for making Styrofoam, and are used in huge volumes, but they can't be obtained through normal distribution routes. I phoned a chemicals manufacturer directly and negotiated to get a sample for the experiments. I managed to get a positive answer to my request, but was asked "how many tons would you like?" at the end of the conversation, and was left lost for words.
