We help you source Tetrabromo bisphenol A(PBBA) in China

Our Advantages:

China currently plays a very important role in the world market for plastic additives, with 168, 1010, DSTDP, DLTDP, 977 and 365 being the most produced products in the world.
The price of plastic additives varies significantly with oil, while the cost correlation between antioxidants and palm oil is high.
Since 2020, the number of black swan events in the world has increased, resulting in dramatic changes in raw material prices.
Companies such as UPP, SONGWON, PMC, LG, etc. have been alerted by us in time and have avoided many losses.

We have a 20+ year track record of working with suppliers in China and rating reports on them, and we keep our suppliers updated with the latest news so our customers can get the latest supplier reports. We know the market well and have early warning notifications on upstream raw material prices to help you build a stable supply chain.

When selecting suppliers, our procurement specialists will audit the qualification of suppliers, conduct thorough investigations such as field visits and sample testing, and make ratings to ensure the authenticity and legality of supplier information.

We have a long-term stable cooperation with GLP laboratories, encounter customer test results and supplier test results do not match the situation, we will commission a third party to test to ensure the accuracy, authenticity and reliability of the experimental results. In this way, we can effectively control the product quality problems.

We have a long-term cooperative warehouse and can follow up packaging and labeling according to safety regulations and customer requirements. In order to effectively prevent damage to the goods in transit, we have prepared various reinforcement measures and packaging solutions.

Tetrabromo bisphenol A(PBBA) is a chemical compound used as a plasticizer, solvent, and dye intermediate. 

It is a chemical intermediate for the production of bisphenol A. PBBA exhibits high miscibility with a range of solvents and a high dielectric constant.

However, its corrosion resistance is low, due to which it can not be used as a plasticizer. This chemical compound is soluble in hot ethanol, methanol, isopropanol, ethyl acetate, dichloromethane, benzene, toluene, xylene, and other solvents. 

It is a potential human carcinogen and a reproductive and developmental toxin. It also exhibits several other harmful effects on human health, even at deficient levels. 


Tetrabromo bisphenol A(PBBA) is a flame retardant of polymers, elastomers, and plastics.

It is used as a flame retardant for such materials like polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polycarbonate (PC), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), and cross-linked polymers.

The presence of it helps to reduce the flammability of the above-mentioned materials. It contains no bromine atoms; hence it is not volatile or flammable.

It is also used as a monomer in the synthesis of polybrominated diphenyl ethers(PBDEs). PBDEs are used as flame retardants of polymers.
