Dover Chemical.

Dover Chemical acquired certain assets of Dallas-based Occidental Chemical's resinous chlorinated paraffins business for undisclosed terms. The acquired products, sold under the Chlorowax trade name, and their equivalents from Dover are now available only from Dover. Effective June 30, Dover will market them under its trade name Chlorez. OxyChem retains the Chlorowax trade name and will discontinue production of resinous chlorinated paraffins but will continue to manufacture and market Chlorowax liquid chlorinated paraffins.
