BPA-free Epoxy Resins can leach from products when they come in contact with hot or acidic materials and strong detergents. This is especially harmful to the human body as BPA in human body mimics the function of the female sex hormone estrogen. Several studies have shown the adverse effects of BPA, especially on infants and children. Various legislations are being placed on the usage of BPA-based epoxy resins in applications where human contact is exceptionally high. As a result, manufacturers are developing epoxy resins based on the substitutes available for BPA.
The report also states that the corrosion resistance is an essential quality required in food packaging, particularly for containers with acidic foods. These coatings exhibit exceptional adhesion to metals, enable long shelf lives of food products, do not cause changes in flavor, and are compatible with various food substances. Epoxy resins are used to manufacture various master models, molds, castings, laminates, fixtures, and other industrial products. BPA-free Epoxy Resins are also used to produce plastic food containers such as lunch boxes, hard plastic baby bottles, and sippy cups.
