Bisphenol A is primarily used to produce polycarbonate plastic, which is used to make hard plastic products like baby bottles, reusable water bottles, food containers, pitchers, tableware, and other storage containers.

Although bisphenol A is essentially utilised to produce polycarbonate plastics, it can also be found in other plastic materials. Moreover, bisphenol A is also employed to produce epoxy resin.

This coating prevents the material from rusting or reacting with the food.
