Chlorinated paraffins are manufactured by the chlorination of n-paraffin or paraffin wax. The process is considered to be batch wise. This reaction is exothermic and further leads to the generation of the by-product hydrochloric acid. With the increase in chlorine content the viscosity and density also increases. Chlorinated paraffins show their solubility with organic solvents such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents and esters. Chlorinated Paraffins containing 30-70% chlorine are largely inert liquid and almost insoluble in water
