Color print advertisement for Styron, the trade name for Styrenic plastics historically manufactured and sold by the Dow Chemical Company for a variety of consumer applications, including packaging and food service, appliances, and other plastic wares. The advertisement features a woman--identified in the text as a "bright young housewife"--holding a plastic bowl and opening a refrigerator. The text describes Styron's use in refrigerator compartments and kitchen utensils, due to its ability to withstand low temperatures.
