Dichloropropane (DCP) is a clear, colorless liquid with no mechanical impurities with a characteristic odor. Dichloropropane is obtained in the production of propylene oxide, then distilled for several times. The improvement of the production process allowed the increase of the purity of DCP from min. 97.5% to min. 99%. As a result, the product has gained greater recognition within overseas markets.
