Chlorinated paraffins are chlorinated n-alkanes or paraffins used as metalworking fluids and secondary plasticizers in the manufacture of PVC compounds. These are typically classified based on the grades or carbon chain lengths such as l-grade, m-grade, and h-grade. Each of these grades defines the length of carbon chain such as short chain chlorinated paraffins, medium chain chlorinated paraffins, and long chain chlorinated paraffins. These grades are further sub-divided based on chlorination content within each grade such as less than 40%, 40% to 70%, and above 70% chlorine by weight.
