Value of Bisphenol A-based materials

Polycarbonate and epoxy resin are high performance, sustainable and eco-efficient materials used in a large variety of essential everyday applications.These materials are selected for the respective applications because of their unique combinations of properties:

Polycarbonate is

  • very durable
  • virtually unbreakable
  • transparent and clear, transmitting light better than alternative plastics materials
  • resistant  to heat and chemicals
  • has low weight and at the same time offers high design flexibility

Epoxy resins are mainly used as protective coatings on a wide variety of surfaces to achieve

  • corrosion protection
  • high dimensional stability
  • strong mechanical strength in composite materials
  • temperature and chemical resistance  

- even longterm and under very harsh or heavy-use conditions.
