Fully semi refined paraffin wax

Refined Paraffin wax is a white, cream , yellow or colorless soft solid derivable from petroleum. paraffin wax is a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms. Paraffin wax is solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 60 Cg. Flash point of paraffin wax is about 250 c.


Semi Refined Paraffin Wax in candle making, high-frequency porcelain, carbon paper, stylus stencil, precision casting, decorative acoustic board and other products.

Fully Refined Paraffin Wax is usually as a material for telecommunications equipment and short-circuit and light industry, chemical raw materials.

Wax is class of compounds that are melt-able solids near environment temperatures. paraffin wax or wax include higher alkane and lipids. typically with melting point above about 50 C , melting to give low viscosity liquids. Waxes are insoluble in water but soluble in organic, non polar solvents. Natural wax has different types like plants and animals and occur in petroleum .

Wax is a general term used to refer to the mixture of long-chain lipids forming a protective coating on plant leaves and fruits. But also in animals algae, fungi and bacteria. Some waxes are of mineral origin. The various materials named waxes do not form a chemically homogeneous group. All paraffin waxes are water-resistant materials made up of various substances including hydrocarbons. (normal or branched alkanes and alkanes) .

More commonly, paraffin waxes are esters of an alcohol other than glycerol and a long chain acid (wax esters). Wax esters are saponified by hot alkaline solutions and give a fatty acid and an alcohol.

Wax is a term for a range of natural or synthetic products. For convenience the range can be divided in :

Natural waxes

Synthetic waxes

Mineral hydrocarbon waxes

Petroleum waxes or paraffin wax

paraffin wax or Petroleum derived wax  – slack wax

semi or fully refined Paraffin wax is a mixtures of alkanes usually in a chain lengths. These materials represent a significant fraction of petroleum process. Paraffin wax is a mixtures of saturated n- and ISO- alkanes, naphthenes, and alkyl- and naphthene-substituted aromatic compounds. The degree of branching has an important influence on the properties. refineries produce Millions tons of refined paraffin waxes annually.For foods (such as chewing gum and cheese wrapping). Also in wax candles and cosmetics, as non-stick and waterproofing coatings and in polishes.

paraffin wax components:

Biochemists link paraffin waxes with the thin layer of fatty constituents that cover the leaves of plants or provide a surface coating for insects or the skin of animals. All of these tend to contain wax esters as major components, i.e. Esters of long-chain fatty alcohols with long-chain fatty acids.

What is the melting point of our paraffin wax?

Waxes are a class of chemical compounds that are plastic (malleable) near ambient temperatures. They are also a type of lipid. Characteristically, they melt above 45 °C (113 °F) to give a low viscosity liquid. Waxes are insoluble in water but soluble in organic, non polar solvents.

wax applications 

paraffin wax is in lubricate zipper
both semi and fully paraffin wax in lubricate wood screw
refined paraffin wax in seal corks on wine bottles
paraffin wax  in trace templates for engraving
special paraffin wax in make lost waxes models for jewellery
fully paraffin wax in dentistry
some of paraffin wax in holding specimen in microscopy
white paraffin wax in medical making thin specimens
paraffin wax in fishing keeping dry flies to float
paraffin wax in food preservations on top of jams and jellies include a loop of string for easy removal

waxes apply in different fields based on their grades : cosmetic , medical , industrial

most popular usages are different creams , hair removal waxes , ointment , candles and polishes

Packaging of paraffin wax

This paraffin wax is packed in drums , cartons , PP bags or small jars and cans, on pallet or non-palletized.


Other Application

Common applications for paraffin wax are candle making, cosmetics, food industry, lubrication, electrical insulation. Paraffin wax; has different grades based on 2 main characteristics: oil content and melting point. The mains categories are light or heavy paraffin wax.
Refined paraffin wax is produced in 5 kg slabs which can be packed in carton or gunny.
