Description: It is used as secondary compound plasticizers. It is a transparent viscous liquid having distinct sweet odour. It is essentially insoluble in water but soluble in other chlorinated solvents.

Chlorinated Paraffins (CPs) are straight-chain hydrocarbons that have been chlorinated. Chlorinated paraffins are classified according to their carbon-chain length and percentage of chlorination, with carbon-chain lengths generally ranging from C 10 to C 30 and chlorination from approximately 35% to greater than 70% by weight. Chlorinated paraffins are made by chlorinating paraffin fractions obtained from petroleum distillation. The three most common commercial feedstocks used are paraffins with carbon number ranges of: Short-chain (C 10-13 ), Intermediate-chain (C 14-17 ) and Long-chain (C 18-30 ).

Major applications of Chlorinated Paraffins

The largest application for chlorinated paraffins is as a plasticiser, generally in conjunction with primary lasticisers such as certain phthalates in flexible PVC. The use of chlorinated paraffins in PVC imparts a number of technical benefits, of which the most significant is the enhancement of flame-retardant properties. This is particularly of benefit in PVC flooring and cables.

Chlorinated paraffins are also used as plasticisers in paint, sealants and adhesives where the main advantages over alternatives are their inertness and the enhancement of flame-retardant properties. Higher Chlorine content grades are used as flame-retardants in a wide range of rubbers and polymer systems, where they are often used in preference to phosphate and bromine-based additives.

The other major outlet for chlorinated paraffins is in the formulation of metalworking lubricants where they have long been recognised as one of the most effective extreme pressure additives for lubricants used in a wide range of machining and engineering operations.

In all of these applications, there is a long history of safe use and some major customers have been using chlorinated paraffins for over 50 years. .

Chlorinated Paraffins is generally used as plasticizer in manufacturing of

  • PVC compounds for Wires and Cables, Foot wear and Toys.
  • PVC Tubing pipes used for irrigation, gardening and other industrial works.
  • PVC flooring, film & sheets, PVC resin, clothe coating and lubricants.
  • Rubber products like V belts.
  • It is used as flame retardant for impregnating textiles & fabric of all kinds.
  • Find applications in paint industries for the manufacturing of fireproof paints.
  • They have also found application in adhesives, sealants, and caulks and are used in the automotive and metalworking industries as lubricants for wide range of machining and engineering operations.
