Terephthalic Acid (a.k.a. TPA) is an aromatic dicarboxylic acid, found as a white and crystalline powder. It is an important monomer in the production of high impact resistance, thermal stability and weather resistance resins such as the polyesters PET and PBT. It is mainly used to produce saturated polyesters, primarily PET (polyethylene terephthalate) followed by PBT (polybutylene terephthalate).
