Difference between paraffin wax and candle wax

Melting point of paraffin wax

As a major chemical product, paraffin wax also has many different types and classifications of paraffin wax under this item. For the classification of paraffin wax, different standards will also cause different paraffin wax classifications.

Divided by the degree of oil content

First of all, paraffin wax is obtained by refining and refining petroleum, so the oil content is a very important classification index of paraffin wax, and it is also a refining index of paraffin wax. For different oil content, paraffin wax can be divided into three types: fully refined paraffin, semi-refined paraffin and crude wax. When the oil content of paraffin wax is below 0.8%, paraffin wax is called fully refined paraffin wax, which is also the highest quality paraffin wax. When the oil content of paraffin wax is less than 1.5%, paraffin wax is called semi-refined paraffin, and when the oil content of paraffin wax is less than 2%, it is crude wax.

Although the quality of paraffin wax is different, for different refining and quality levels, these paraffin waxes can play their own role. For example, high-quality fully refined paraffin is the main raw material for making candles, and high-quality candles can be made. The semi-refined paraffin wax can be used to make paraffin wax that is not particularly high-quality. It can also be used for waterproofing and fiberboard production like crude wax.

According to the melting point of paraffin wax

In addition to the classification of oil content, the melting point of paraffin is also a very important classification index for paraffin. Our common paraffin wax can usually be divided into the melting point of 52-64, usually every 2 ℃, divided into different varieties, such as 52, 54, 56, 58 and other grades. The most common and best-selling products are the 56 and 58 grades. Other very low or very high melting point paraffin waxes are relatively less produced. For example, 52 and 64 degree paraffin wax. Compared with the front 56 and 58, the latter 52 and 64 will produce less.

Requirements for paraffin wax in different markets

As a chemical product converted from petroleum, the global demand for paraffin wax is still very large. It is precisely because there are too many demanders, spreading across different countries and markets, which causes the preference difference between different markets. For example, the South American market, dominated by Mexico and Brazil, prefers 58 or 60 fully refined 50 kg bags of paraffin. European countries dominated by the United Kingdom and Poland would prefer the 56.58 fully refined 25kg box of paraffin wax.Other different countries also have their own relatively fixed preferences for paraffin wax.

The above is the basic content of paraffin wax classification. The following will focus on the melting point of paraffin wax. As mentioned above, paraffin wax has different melting points, so buyers can purchase according to their own market or country’s different needs. For low melting point paraffin wax, the melting temperature is lower, which saves energy. For high melting point, paraffin wax is not easy to melt, which is very advantageous for long-distance transportation or countries with higher temperatures.
