Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
TBBPA is used mostly as a reactive brominated flame retardant but is also used as an additive flame retardant. It is primarily used as a reactive flame retardant in the production of epoxy resin printed electronic circuit boards by covalently binding to epoxy and polycarbonate resins, and therefore, it no longer exists as a separate chemical entity. TBBPA is used as an additive flame retardant in the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resins used in electronic enclosures and electronic consumer products with an outer plastic casing. TBBPA is also used as a flame retardant for plastics, paper and textiles, and is applied to office furniture and carpet. It is also a plasticizer in adhesives and coatings, used in high impact polystyrene (HIPS) and phenolic resins, and as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of other flame retardants.
