USES
METALLURGY :
HEXACHLOROETHANE is used widely by FOUNDRY FLUX MANUFACTURERS for the production of tablets/pellets which are sold both to primary aluminium smelters and secondary aluminium smelters (foundries& extrusion units) for degassing and refining of aluminium and aluminium alloys.
DEFENCE :
HEXACHLOROETHANE is used as a major component in Pyrotechnic mixtures which are consumed for the production of Smoke Screens / Smoke Grenades (major use will be Ordnance and Ammunition Factories).
VETERINARY :
HEXACHLOROETHANE POWDER is used for making HEXA-B-VET C. This is a veterinary compound in which major component (upto 90%) is HEXACHLOROETHANE. This is fed orally to the cattle, sheep etc. for the treatment (liver fasciolae / liver fluke) of liver disease which if not cured on time, reduces the yield of milk, wool etc.
AGRICULTURE :
HEXACHLOROETHANE is used as an insecticide / pesticide for some of the crops. However there is no published data available on this subject although there are some known usages.
OTHER USES :
HEXACHLOROETHANE is used in moth repellants, in high-temperature lubricants, in organic synthesis.
