Product Details: Chlorinated Paraffin

Chlorinated paraffin waxes (CPWs) are produced by chlorination of straight-chained paraffin wax fractions. The carbon chain length of commercial chlorinated paraffin wax is usually between 10 and 30 carbon atoms, and the chlorine content is usually between 40 and 70% by weight. Chlorinated paraffin waxes are viscous colorless or yellowish dense oils with low vapor pressures, except for those of long carbon chain length with high chlorine content (70%), which are solid.

Chlorinated paraffin waxes are practically insoluble in water, lower alcohols, glycerol and glycols, but are soluble in chlorinated solvents, aromatic hydrocarbons, ketones, esters, ethers, mineral oils and some cutting oils. They are moderately soluble in unchlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons. Chlorinated paraffin wax consist of extremely complex mixtures, owing to the many possible positions for the chlorine atoms.



Chlorinated Paraffin Wax (CPW) is used in a wide range of industrial applications including flame retardants and plasticisers. It functions as an additive in metalworking fluids, sealants, paints, and coatings & Chlorinated paraffin is non-poisonous, non-inflammable low volatility, and high insulativity. Chlorinated Paraffin Wax (CPW) can be used as flame retardants and plasticizer. Widely used in the production of cable materials, floor, panel, shoes, rubber and other products. It also can be applied in coatings and lubricating oil additive & excellent external lubricant for PVC Processing and other industrial applications. PVC sticks to metal at the time of processing and hence it is not lubricated externally resulting in non satisfactory extrusion results.

Chlorinated Paraffin Wax (CPW) is generally used as plasticizer in manufacturing of PVC compounds for Wires and Cables, Footwears and Toys. PVC Tubing pipes used for irrigation, gardening and other industrial works. Chlorinated Paraffin Wax (CPW) is used as flame retardant for impregnating textiles & fabric of all kinds. Find applications in paint industries for the manufacturing of fire proof paints. It is used in lubricants as an extreme pressure additive, where it forms a tenacious film on working parts. In cutting oils it is used as an additive to minimize ‘weld’ formation.
