Lining water pipes (applying resin to their walls) helps to prevent their deterioration. BPA-based resins are commonly used to line the pipes of drinking-water systems. This mini-dossier reviews the challenges in this area and the technical solutions currently available.
Tetra-bromo bisphenol A (TBBPA) is a substance that belongs to the family of bisphenols and is used in plastics as a reactant or additive for its properties of flame retardant.
When used as a reagent, TBBPA is modified in the resin and is linked by chemical bonds. The two main applications are: the constituent epoxy resins of printed circuits and the epoxy resins used to encapsulate some electronic components from printed circuits. TBBPA is also used marginally as a reagent in other plastics and resins.
