Flame retardant
Until the late 1970s, Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate was used as a flame retardant in children’s pajamas in compliance with the U.S. Flammable Fabrics Act of 1953. This use was discontinued after children wearing fabrics treated with a very similar compound, tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate, were found to have mutagenic byproducts in their urine.

Following the 2005 phase-out of PentaBDE in the United States, Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate became one of the primary flame retardants used in flexible polyurethane foam used in a wide variety of consumer products, including automobiles, upholstered furniture, and some baby products. Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate can also be used in rigid polyurethane foam boards used for building insulation.[6] In 2011 it was reported that Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate was found in about a third of tested baby products.

Presence in the environment
Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate is an additive flame retardant, meaning that it is not chemically bonded to treated materials. Additive flame retardants are thought to be more likely to be released into the surrounding environment during the lifetime of the product than chemically bonded, or reactive, flame retardants.
Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate degrades slowly in the environment and is not readily removed by wastewater treatment processes.

Indoor Uses
Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate has been detected in indoor dust, although concentrations vary widely. The second study found an average concentration similar to that of the previous study but a greater range of concentrations: one sample collected from a vehicle contained over 300 ppm Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate in the dust. Similar concentrations have been reported for dust samples collected in Europe and Japan.

Outdoors Uses
Although Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate is generally found at the highest concentrations in enclosed environments, such as homes and vehicles, it is widespread in the environment. Diverse environmental samples, ranging from surface water to wildlife tissues, have been found to contain Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate. The highest levels of contamination are generally near urban impacted areas; however, samples from even relatively remote reference sites have contained Tris[2-chloro-1-(chloromethyl)ethyl] phosphate.
