Paraffin waxes can be classified in a number of ways. The main classification methods are melting point classification, oil content classification, application classification and color classification.
High Melting Point: This wax is ideal for cylindrical candles, hand-dipped fine candles, molded candles, shaped or engraved gift candles. This wax is very hard and does not retain its fragrance and has a melting point of 63°C.
This type of wax is needed to make the above types of wax so that the candle doesn’t sag on its own as it cools. If you make candles with this wax, you need to use additives.
Medium melting point: This wax is commonly used to make prayer candles and sometimes container candles, and has a melting point of 53-63°C. This wax is harder to the touch than a low melting point wax, but retains its shape better.
This wax is better in terms of fragrance retention, but requires the use of additives. This type of wax is blocky and needs to be cut into small pieces to melt.
Low melting point: This type of wax melts at a temperature of 53 °C. Soft wax is an ideal material for making container candles, and has the characteristics of lasting fragrance until the candle is burned out.
Soft wax has strong flexibility. No additives are required. Softer paraffin waxes have many advantages, however, they are more difficult to process and emit more fumes than other waxes.
Due to the different refining processes of Japanese imported paraffin, the Japanese imported paraffin will be more transparent, harder and dryer than the finished product of domestic paraffin, and the corresponding cost of Japanese imported paraffin will be twice as high as that of domestic paraffin.
However, according to personal experience, domestic paraffin can be formulated with additives to perfectly achieve the effect of imported paraffin from Japan, and the cost will not be higher than that of imported paraffin from Japan.
