Bisphenol A Europe

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic chemical compound which functions as the building block for epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastic. Polycarbonate plastic is a highly versatile, durable, heat and shatter resistant, and clear thermoplastic that is the material of choice for a wide range of end-user applications as diverse as DVDs, computers and home appliances, spectacles and optical lenses, reusable water bottles, and medical equipment. Epoxy resins are used primarily as coatings for consumer and industrial applications, such as food and drinks cans, and as protective coatings for electronic and marine uses.
