    Yes it is. Researchers in Dow's Chemical Physics Lab found a way to make foamed polystyrene. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic substance, normally existing in solid state at room temperature, but melting if heated (for molding or extrusion), and becoming solid again when cooling off.thermoplastic means yes polystyrene is plastic and since styrofoam is made from polystrene in affect, it is also a type of plastic, so yes.

    How Is Styrofoam Made

  • 4 years ago

    To be honest I'm not sure, but you might try PVC pipe glue. I don't know if it will melt the styrofoam or not. You can buy it at any hardware store. There is also a product in a spray can called spray adhesive, that would probably be your best bet, and it is easy to apply. It is also available at hardware stores and Home Depot,Lowe's, Ace hardware and places like that... Good luck
