Chlorinated Paraffins. A Review of the CIS Production

     Chlorinated paraffins are essential multi-purpose additives used in the production of polymer materials and their composites. Their principle application field is plasticizers and fire-retardants for PVC and other polymer compositions. In 2004-07, the world production of chlorinated paraffins stood at 300,000 tpy as estimated by the Euro Chlor. Russia secures a 7% share in the global output; and this index will likely stay at the same level by 2010. Presently, chlorinated paraffins are produced in the CIS only by Russian companies: Kaustik JSC and Chimprom JSC in Volgograd; Sterlitamak-based Kaustik JSC in the Republic of Bashkortostan; and Novocheboksarsk-located Himprom JSC. Liquid chlorinated paraffin HP-470 is the most appealing product enjoying strong demand both in the domestic and foreign markets.
     The growth trend observed in chlorinated paraffin production in 2005-07 had been driven by sustainable demand within Russia and worldwide. Volgograd-based Kaustik JSC is the key exporter of chlorinated paraffins from Russia.
