TCC’s tetrabromophthalic anhydride (TBPA) is a reactive flame retardant incorporated into unsaturated resins. It is also a starting material for the manufacture of other flame retardants such as bromine-containing urethane polyols and diallyl tetrabromophthalate. Additionally, TBPA is used to manufacture sulfobromophthalein, a compound used as a diagnostic aid for the determination of liver function.
TCC’s Tetrabromophthalic anhydride (TBPA) is a powerful fire–retardant monomer, markedly superior to tetrachlorophthalic (TCPA) anhydrides, as demonstrated in comparative combustion tests on polyester and epoxy resins. As a flame retardant it is used in plastics, paper and textiles, and also as an intermediate to produce pharmaceuticals.
As a reaction burning-resistant agent, TBPA is used for polyester, unsaturated polyester, and epoxy resin. As an additive burning-resistant agent, TCC’s TBPA can be used for polystyrene, polypropylene, and ABG resin, antimony trioxide and other engineering plastics and synthetic materials, and for the composition of fine chemical substances.
