Bisphenol A (BPA) is made from acetone and phenol and is an intermediate in the manufacture of epoxy resins and of polycarbonate resins. The ratio of BPA use is approximately 40:60 as between epoxy and polycarbonate resins. The rapid growth of polycarbonate resins in recent years has seen an increase in the number of BPA manufacturing sites world-wide.

Epichlorohydrin (ECH) is a chlor-epoxide that is essentially based on the reaction of chlorine with propylene through a number of reaction steps: it may be regarded as being similar to propylene oxide with the addition of a reactive chlorine site. The two routes to ECH are via allyl chloride and allyl alcohol: allyl chloride is by far the main route. ECH is used mainly (70%) in the production of epoxy resins and also in the manufacture of synthetic glycerine and cationic polymers and starches.

Epoxy Resins are manufactured from bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin, and are cross-linked in use by a variety of curing agents, typically polyamines.  Applications include liquid coatings and powder coatings, automobile, aerospace, construction, marine, wind turbines, pipes and tanks, food packaging and cans, adhesives, paints and composites. They are also used by the electronics industry to make eg,  printed circuit boards.

About Epoxy Resins

Epoxy resins are low molecular weight polymers, which can be cured or hardened with a number of substances such as polyamines, aminoamides or phenolic compounds, to produce thermoset resins. Their reactivity enables them to bond well to reinforcements, so when they are combined with glass, carbon or aramid fibres they produce composite materials that give excellent mechanical properties and high resistance to environmental degradation. Epoxy resins are also used as protective and insulating coatings in ships, aircrafts and in aerospace applications. Due to their high resistance to corrosion, they are also used to coat wind turbine poles, blades, pipes and tanks for drinking, waste, oil and gas as well as coatings for steel and concrete products. They are used by the food industry to coat cans and packaging. As powder coatings, they are used in household ‘white goods’ appliances such as washing machines and fridges. In construction, they are used for laminated wood, walls, and roofs and flooring, including long-life adhesives and paints. In the automobile industry, they can produce lightweight composite parts for cars and bicycles, while at the same time their high-performance properties, including resistance to corrosion, also make them key materials for aerospace. Epoxy resins have excellent insulating properties and are used in printed circuit boards, transistors, solar panels, LEDs and semi-conductor encapsulation. They can also be used as fire-retardant coatings for industrial and commercial installations.
