"An adequate margin of safety exists for BPA at current levels of exposure from food contact uses, for infants and adults"
US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), January 2010
"Levels of BPA in the human body are very low, indicating that BPA is not accumulated in the body and is rapidly eliminated."
World Health Organization (WHO), November 2010
"The highest estimates for aggregated exposure to BPA from both dietary and non-dietary sources are 3 to 5 times lower than the TDI, depending on the age group."
EFSA fact sheet, January 2015
"The current Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) level for BPA is adequately justified."

Value of Bisphenol A-based materials

Polycarbonate and epoxy resin are high performance, sustainable and eco-efficient materials. They are well established in 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.
