Chlorowax is a type of chlorinated paraffin resin, in the form of a cream colored powder. It is used as a chlorine donor (contains 70% chlorine). Chlorinated paraffins are used as secondary plasticizers for polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Chlorinated paraffins are also used as extreme pressure additives in metal-machining fluids or as metal-working lubricants or cutting oils because of their vicious nature, compatibility with oils, and property of releasing hydrochloric acid at elevated temperatures. They are added to paints, coatings, and sealants to improve resistance to water and chemicals, which is most suitable when they are used in marine paints, as coatings for industrial flooring, vessels, and swimming pools and as road marking paints. Solvents are xyleneacetone and alcohol.

The following table can be used whenever we want to substitute one chlorine donor for another. In this case, we would use more of the weaker donor to account for the missing chlorine.

Common chlorine donors and their approximate chlorine contents:

Ammonium chloride – 65%
Ammonium perchlorate – 20%
Chlorowax – 30-70%
Dechlorane – 78%
