Chlorinated Tris (TDCPP) is a chemical that has been produced in large quantitites over the years primarily as an additive flame retardant for use in polyurethane foams.

TDCPP has been detected in both indoor and outdoor environments in the U.S. and abroad. It has been measured in household and office dust, indoor air, and in streams, sewage influents, effluents and sludge. The chemical has even been measured in humans.

There have been some claims that suggest chlorinated Tris may influence hormone levels, increase tumor rates and may even be a neurotoxin. In 2011, chlorinated Tris was added to California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known as Proposition 65.
