if it is real Styrofoam (Polystyrene) it'll start to melt at 95 C (203 F). Other polymers will have different melting points.

i am using it to hold a projector headlight inside the entire plastic housing. it is hanging down so i thought i could stick some styrofoam in there, the problem is that i dont want it to burn or melt because the metal projector gets very hot ( when it is on, you cannot touch it without burning your finger)..

can anyone tell me what the melting points and the points when the fumes come off of different types of styrofoam
