Explanation:
Tiene aspecto de que el original quisiera decir styrofoam box; comprueba si en el resto del texto también hay errores para ver si esto es coherente.

De ser así, styrofoam es poliestireno expandido, popularmente llamado "corcho blanco" y conocido también por la marca registrada Porexpan.
