Paraffin wax is a hydrocarbon mixture extracted from certain distillates of petroleum, shale oil or other bituminous mineral oils. The main component is solid alkane, odorless and tasteless, and white or light yellow translucent solid. Paraffin wax is non-crystalline, but has a clear crystal structure.

There is also artificial paraffin. Paraffin wax is a kind of petroleum processing product, a kind of mineral wax, and a kind of petroleum wax. It is a flake or needle-shaped crystal obtained by solvent refining, solvent dewaxing, or freezing crystallization of wax and pressing dewaxing to obtain the lubricating oil fraction obtained from crude oil distillation, and then solvent deoiling and refining.

Used to make higher fatty acids, higher alcohols, matches, candles, waterproofing agents, ointments, electrical insulating materials, etc. Paraffin wax is divided into food grade (food grade and packaging grade, the former is excellent) and industrial grade. Food grade is non-toxic and industrial grade is inedible.

54 Fully Refined Paraffin Wax

Because of its high oil content, crude paraffin is mainly used in the manufacture of matches, fiberboards, tarpaulins, etc.

After adding polyolefin additives to paraffin wax, its melting point increases, adhesion and flexibility increase, and it is widely used in moisture-proof and waterproof packaging paper, cardboard, surface coating of some textiles and candle production.

After immersing the paper in paraffin wax, various wax papers with good waterproof performance can be prepared, which can be used in food, medicine and other packaging, metal rust prevention and printing industries; after paraffin wax is added to cotton yarn, the textile can be soft, smooth and elastic ; Paraffin wax can also be made into detergents, emulsifiers, dispersants, plasticizers, greases and so on.

Fully refined paraffin and semi-refined paraffin have a wide range of uses.

They are mainly used as components and packaging materials for foods, oral medicines and some commodities (such as wax paper, crayons, candles, carbon paper), coating materials for baking containers, and used for fruit preservation , Insulate electrical components, improve rubber aging resistance and increase flexibility. It can also be used for oxidation to generate synthetic fatty acids.
