Applications of Chloroil

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

  • The largest application for Chlorinated Paraffin's is as a plasticizer, generally in conjunction with primary plasticizers such as certain phthalates in flexible PVC.
  • The use of Chlorinated Paraffin's 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 Paraffin's are also used as plasticizers 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 Paraffin's is in the formulation of metalworking lubricants where they have long been recognized as one of the most effective extreme pressure additives for lubricants used in a wide range of machining and engineering operations.
  • PVC compounds for Wires and Cables, Foot wear and Toys.
  • PVC flexible gardening pipes used for irrigation, gardening and other industrial works.
  • PVC flooring, film & sheets, PVC resin, coating and lubricants
  • Rubber products like V belts, conveyer belts
  • It is also used in artificial leather.
  • 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
