Description
Short Chained Chloroparaffines Medium Chained Chloroparaffines

Chemically
Chloroparaffines are a mixture of chlorinated n-alkanes. The chlorination degree can vary from 30% and 70%. Thus over 200 chloroparaffin formulations are in use.
These chemicals are divided into sections according to their carbon chain length as followed:
Short Chained Chloroparaffines (SCCP) C10 – C13
Medium Chained Chloroparaffines (MCCP) C14 – C17
Long Chained Chloroparaffines (LCCP) C>17

Restricted Substances
Short Chained Chloroparaffines (SCCP) C10 – C13
Medium Chained Chloroparaffines (MCCP) C14 – C17

Where they may be found/Possible application:
Chloroparaffines are used as degreaser for leather products.

Reason for concern/Effects:
(Short) Chained Chloroparaffines are classified as persistent and their physical properties imply a high potential for bioaccumulation. Furthermore CP are classified as toxic to aquatic organisms and SCCP as possibly carcinogenic to humans.
