SpecialChem / Apr 1, 2014

BPA, commonly referred to as bisphenol A, is chemically identified as 2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)propane. More than 90% of BPA is used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. BPA-based polycarbonate plastics are typically used to make containers that store food and beverages, such as water and sport drink bottles. BPA epoxy-based resins have been used to coat the inside of metal food cans and metal beverage cans for more than 50 years.
