SCCP Testing

What is the SCCP?
English name:  Alkanes, C10-13, chloro (Short Chain Chlorinated Paraffins)
Moldcular formula: C10-13
Cas no: 85535-84-8
EINECS no287-476-5

The SCCP short chain chlorinated paraffin According to the chloride content can be divided into: 42%,48%,50-52%,65-70%. Before the three pale yellow viscous liquid, the latter for the yellow viscous liquid. 40%,48%,50-52% three can replace part of the main plasticizer, not only reduce the cost, and make products with flame retardant, compatibility.


SCCP short chain chlorinated paraffin biological toxicity: affect the immune system and reproductive system.


Short chain chlorinated paraffin (SCCP) are the most widely used in cables, and are also widely used in the manufacture of water pipes, floors, films, artificial leather, plastic products and daily necessities. 65-70% is mainly used as flame retardant, mixed with three oxidation of two antimony used in polyethylene, polystyrene, etc.. In addition SCCP short chain chlorinated paraffin is also used as a flame retardant for textiles, rubber and plastics, as a plasticizer in leather processing, paints and other coatings, as well as in metalworking additives.


Since January 1, 2003, the use of SCCP short chain chlorinated paraffin is subject to the European Commission's assessment of its health and environmental risks. The guidelines will come into force immediately after the official publication of the European Union, and the member states shall apply within 18 months after the entry into force of the guidelines. The Commission will continue to study the risk SCCP may constitute in other areas, export products in the European market should be guaranteed through the detection of short chain chlorinated paraffin products do not contain SCCP.
