What is it?
Epoxy Resin – Bisphenol A is a combination of chemicals used in materials which harden or cure. This combination of epoxy resins can be made flexible or rigid, transparent or opaque, fast setting or slow setting, and heat a chemical resistant.

How can I avoid it?
Epoxies penetrate vinyl and most natural and synthetic rubber gloves. Silver Shield®/4H® gloves may be used instead to provide protection against epoxy resin.

Uses:
  • Adhesives and glues (industrial and home use)
  • Laminates
  • Electrical insulators
  • Plastics manufacturing
  • Polyvinyl chloride films
    • Adhesive tapes
    • Beads in necklaces
    • Chamber pots
    • Eyeglasses
    • Hand bags
    • Plastic panties
    • Some vinyl gloves
  • Product finishing
    • Aircraft
    • Appliances finishes
    • Appliance primers
    • Automotive primers
    • Can and drum linings
    • Chemical resistant finishes
    • Finished masonry

  • Dental restoratives
Other names for Epoxy Resin – Bisphenol A:
  • Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A
  • Bisphenol A diglycidyl ether
Potential cross reacting/co-reacting substances:
  • Many other epoxy-based adhesives/bonding agents/acrylates
  • Bisphenol-A in uncured Epoxy Resin – Bisphenol A cross reacts with diethylstilbestrol
