Product Description

It is a transparent viscous liquid having distinct sweet odor. It is essentially insoluble in water but soluble in other chlorinated solvents. Chlorinated Paraffin’s (SERECHLOR420) are straight-chain hydrocarbons that have been chlorinated. Chlorinated Paraffin’s are classified according to their carbon-chain length and percentage of chlorination, with carbon-chain lengths generally ranging from C10 to C20 and chlorination from approximately 42% by weight; Chlorinated Paraffin’s are made by chlorinating paraffin fractions obtained from petroleum distillation. The three most common commercial feed stocks used are paraffin’s with carbon number ranges of: short-chain (C10-13), intermediate-chain (C14-17) and long-chain (C18-30)

Chlorinated Paraffin’s is used as plasticizers used to impart flexibility and flame retardant quality to PVC compounds, cables, Footwear’s, Flooring, Films, and Sheets etc. with Phthalate Plasticizers.
It is used by ink, paints and adhesives manufacturers.
It is used as flame retardant.
It is used in the production of PVC flexible gardening pipes, pressure pipes, hosing etc.
It is used in the production of PVC - Plastisol coating/artificial leather cloth Industries
It is used in the production of PVC – extrusion/other applications
It is used in the production of plastic/rubber.
It is used in formulation and use in metal cutting/working fluids
