Paraffin is a hydrocarbon mixture extracted from certain distillates of petroleum, shale oil or other bituminous mineral oil. The main component is solid alkanes, odorless and tasteless, and is a white or light yellow translucent solid. Paraffin wax is amorphous but has a distinct crystal structure. There is also artificial paraffin.
Paraffin is a kind of petroleum processing product, a kind of mineral wax and a kind of petroleum wax. It is a flake or needle crystal obtained by solvent refining, solvent dewaxing or wax freezing crystallization, solvent dewaxing to obtain a wax paste, and solvent deoiling and refining. Used in the manufacture of higher fatty acids, higher alcohols, matches, candles, water repellents, ointments, electrical insulation materials, etc.
Paraffin wax is divided into food grade (food grade and packaging grade, the former is excellent) and industrial grade, food grade non-toxic, industrial grade is not edible.
The main performance indicators of paraffin are melting point, oil content and stability. According to the degree of processing and refining, it can be divided into three types: fully refined paraffin, semi-refined paraffin and crude paraffin. Each type of wax is divided into different varieties according to the melting point, generally every 2 ° C, such as 52, 54, 56, 58 and so on. Crude paraffin has a high oil content and is mainly used for making matches, fiberboard, canopy canvas, etc.
Gel wax for candle is a jelly-like transparent gelatinous solid developed in recent years. It is crystal clear, colorless, non-toxic, harmless, elastic and fragrant. The jelly wax is easy to process, and can be adjusted to be fragrant and toned after melting.
Soy wax refers to a wax produced by the production of hydrogenated soybean oil. It is the main raw material for making custom soy wax candle, essential oils and scented candles. The advantages of soy wax: low price, the cup wax is not removed from the cup, the column wax cools quickly, is easy to demould, does not crack, the pigment is evenly dispersed, and can not afford flowers. It burns 30-50% longer than paraffin. Non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It does not produce carcinogens when burned, and the waste is biodegradable. Save heat source and help operators to produce safely.
