Chlorinated Paraffin Wax

Chlorinated Paraffin Wax
Chlorinated Paraffin Wax
Product Code : 08
Product Description

Owing to years of industrial experience and deep knowledge, we have been able to provide our clients with a prime quality Chlorinated Paraffin Wax. At vendors' end, it is processed with the usage of pristine quality chemical compounds in balanced composition in sync with universally accepted norms of quality. Offered wax is commonly used in the Rubber Industry in the form of fire retardant additive and as a replacement of DOP in Nitrile Rubber Compounds. Besides, this Chlorinated Paraffin Wax is also used in mining as well as in aircraft and shipbuilding constructions.

Features:

  • Free from impurities

  • Low volatile

  • Hygienically processed

  • Fire retardant

GENERAL PROPERTIES
SuvChlor is neutral, clear, pale-yellow viscous liquid. Its viscosity, however, depends on its chlorine content. It is insoluble in water, soluble to a limited extent in lower aliphatic alcohols and fully soluble in common organic solvents, in most mineral, animal and vegetable oils. All grades of SuvChlor are mutually miscible, so much so, they are compatible with almost all plasticizers, resins, esters, condensation products and high polymer and waxes.

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS
Low volatility, flame retardance, compatibility with fillers and pigments, emulsifiability, clear appearance and low inherent colour. It is non-toxic and is recommended for application coming in contact with food.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Our production program includes the following standard grades. If any special grades are desired, same can be undertaken against specific orders.

PVC COMPOUNDING

SuvChlor grades having 40% to 52% chlorine content are employed in PVC as primary or secondary plasiticizers on account of their good compatibility with PVC and common ester plasticizers. The most economic grade for use in PVC, however, is SuvChlor-52, which has the maximum compatibility and consequently it can replace more of costly primary plasticizer. In fact, the compatibility of SuvChlor-52 with PVC is so good that in many rigid or semi-rigid applications such as PVC Pipes & Fittings, films, floorings, leather cloths, where DOP levels are not more than 20 phr, DOP can be completely replaced with SuvChlor-52. Addition of SuvChlor-52 to PVC improves resistivity increases and so also flame retardancy of the compound. SuvChlor-52 possesses good PVC gelling capability. Where DOP is cheaper, SuvChlor-52 is used mainly as a fire retardancy additive, otherwise, it is used mainly as a cost saving additive.


PAINT INDUSTRY

SuvChlor-52 as well as SuvChlor-58 can be used as plasticizer for flexibility and plasticizing additives to compatible binders and resins in the manufacture of paints and other coating compositions. Its use is economic and makes if possible to achieve specialized properties, Compatibility of the combination of bonding agents or resins with suvChlor is achieved if they are miscible and the suvChlor exhibits no noticeable sweating tendency (SURFACE STICKNESS) in the proportions used. Good results are obtained with soluble vinyl chloride vinylidene chloride co-polymers. There is also compatibility or limited compatibility with cyclic rubbers, styrene-butadiene copolymers, cellulose derivatives, alkyd resins, polyvinyl acetals and acetates, maleic resins, cournarone resins, ketone resins as well as linseed oil, wood oil and other paint bonding agents and resins. SuvChlor is compatible with majority of the common plasticizers. It can often be used to replace other conventional plasticizers, like DOP, DBP, etc.
RUBBER INDUSTRY

SuvChlor is used in the Rubber Industry as a fire retardant additive as well as a replacement of DOP in Nitrile Rubber Compounds. In mining, as well as in shipbuilding and aircraft constructions, the rubber goods are required to be-flame-retardant and SuvChlor plays an important role. SuvChlor can also be used in conjuction with antimony Trioxide or Aluminium Hydroxide in order to obtain improved antiflame properties. As a flame retardant, SuvChlor-70L is recommended, whilst as a plasticizer SuvChlor-52 is excellent. It is also used as a process oil for Neoprene.
