Market Insights

Rising Demand for Metal Working Fluids

Chlorinated paraffin is used as an extreme pressure additive in the application of metalworking fluids. Generally, MCCPs and LCCPs are used in the production of metalworking fluids. It is used for the industrial gear lubricants. The addition of chlorinated paraffin forms in metalworking fluids forms a metal salt layer or a carbonated film between the two metal surfaces under severe lubrication circumstances. Every metalworking operation requires precise fluid characteristics that depend on the metal and operational conditions. In the case of extreme pressure additives, chlorinated paraffin is considered to be the best option of the precise fluid characteristics. Chlorinated paraffin is used as a cooling and lubricating fluids in the grinding and metal cutting operations. There are two types of chlorinated paraffin fluids used, water-based emulsions and oil-lubricants. The basic function of water-based lubricant is cooling. Metalworking fluids are used to reduce friction between the work surface and the cutting tool. The addition of chlorinated paraffin in metalworking fluids helps to retain the surface characteristics of the metal.

Chlorinated paraffin is used as extreme pressure additive that is activated by the generation of heat during metal working that forms a film between the cutting tool and the metal surface that prevents destructive welding, surface breakdown, and excessive metal transfer. Therefore, the rising demand for metalworking fluids further expected to drive the global chlorinated paraffin market.

Production shift to long chain chlorinated paraffin provides opportunity for the chlorinated paraffin market growth

There has been a rising demand in the use of LCCPs over the period. The use of LCCPs was recorded to be considerably high in the rubber industry, as compared to other chlorinated paraffin. The possibility in the use of LCCPs in some areas might increase as it can be successful in replacing other types of chlorinated paraffin, especially the MCCPs. The LCCPs have found to be a successful alternative in some of the applications. In the case of paints, LCCPs have found to exhibit properties such as anti-corrosion primers for the metal-based PVC copolymers. The addition of LCCPs in acrylic and outdoor wall paints has proven to be beneficial and convenient as compared to the inclusion of MCCPs in paints which further propel the growth of the global chlorinated paraffin market.

The LCCPs have found an important place as an alternative to the rubber industries too. The application of LCCPs in the production of profiles for fire-proof doors has been recorded to be successful and can be used as an alternative to MCCPs. The application of LCCPs in the production for bellows used in buses, metros, and trains is another adding point to the application of LCCPs to be used as an alternative to the MCCPs. Therefore, rising demand for long-chain chlorinated paraffin is expected to provide growth opportunities to industry players in the global chlorinated paraffin market.

Product Type Insights

The global chlorinated paraffin market by product type has been segmented into short-chain, medium-chain, and long-chain. The medium-chain chlorinated paraffin segment dominated the global chlorinated paraffin market. Moreover, the long-chain chlorinated paraffin segment in the global chlorinated paraffin market is anticipated to grow at a faster pace over the forecast period.

The LCCPs are free from chlorinated paraffin impurities. The wide range of the number of carbon atoms results in the complex nature of the product. The primary use of LCCPs is as a secondary plasticizer in PVC, as a flame retardant in sealants, adhesives, and paints. Fireproofing of cellulosic textiles is one of the significant applications of long-chain chlorinated paraffin. It is also used to treat the finished fabric.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the global chlorinated paraffin market has been segmented into lubricant additives, plastic, rubber, paints, metal working fluids, adhesives, and others. The wide range of application of chlorinated paraffin in various industries provides a huge developing potential for the global chlorinated paraffin market. Under application segment, lubricant additives is the leading segment in the global chlorinated paraffin market. Chlorinated paraffin is used as metal surfactants in the lubricant additives. Extreme pressure additives formulate to produce high-quality lubricants. Extreme pressure additives based on chlorinated paraffin are gaining increasing fame worldwide. These lubricants chemically react with the metal surface as a protector that forms a coating that prevents the two metal surfaces from welding together under high temperature and pressure that occurs during lubrication. Chlorinated paraffin has been recognized as one of the most effective lubricants in countries such as India and China which boost the chlorinated paraffin market in Asia Pacific. Moreover, increasing demand and production of lubricant additives further propel the demand chlorinated paraffin in the lubricant additives application.
