Dichloropropane (DCP) is a clear, colorless liquid with no mechanical impurities with a characteristic odor.

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.
