Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are not a single chemical, but a class of 209 synthetic compounds, often used as insulators in electrical equipment, such as transformers, capacitors and ballasts. PCBs also were used as plasticizers in caulking and as thermal stabilizers in hydraulic and lubricating fluids.
