How To Use The Solid Paraffin

1.How to get the solid paraffin wax

Paraffin wax, colorless or white, slightly translucent, hard wax consisting of a mixture of solid linear hydrocarbons with a melting point range of approximately 48° to 66° C (120° to 150° F).

Paraffin wax is obtained from petroleum by dewaxing light lubricating oil feedstocks.

2.The types of solid paraffin

From the common types, we can find that there are many common types of solid paraffin even if it is a solid type.

The first is the most common slab paraffin, which is in the state of slate, which is also our most common type of paraffin.

The second is the particle state. The volume of solid paraffin in the state of particles will be relatively small, compared with slab paraffin.

It melts easily and is more convenient to use.

In addition to the two mentioned above, our company will also provide our specially produced column wax products, which is also a type of paraffin wax unique to our factory.

3.The melting points of the solid paraffin

Paraffin wax is divided into food wax, fully refined paraffin, semi-refined paraffin and soap wax and other categories, each category is divided into 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 64 according to the melting point.

Usually there is a difference of 2 degrees between the melting points of paraffin wax.

Usually differentiated as 52-54.54-56, 56-58, etc.And different melting points, different solid paraffin types will have different effects.

4.The oil content of the solid paraffin

Oil content refers to the amount of low-melting hydrocarbons contained in paraffin wax.

Excessive oil content will affect the color and storage stability of paraffin wax,

and also reduce its hardness.

Therefore, the oil-containing solid paraffin paste removed from the vacuum fraction needs to be deoiled by sweating or solvent method to reduce its oil content.

However, most paraffin products need to contain a small amount of oil.

Which is beneficial to improve the gloss and mold release properties of the products.

5.The use of the solid 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.

Its melting point is increased, adhesion and flexibility are increased, and it is widely used in moisture-proof and waterproof packaging paper, cardboard,surface coating of certain textiles and candle production.

After immersing paper in paraffin, 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 industry; when paraffin is added to cotton yarn, it can make textiles soft, smooth and elastic.

Paraffin can also be used to make detergents, emulsifiers, dispersants, plasticizers, greases, etc.

Fully refined paraffin wax and semi-refined paraffin wax are widely used.

They are mainly used as components and packaging materials for food, oral medicines and certain commodities (such as wax paper, crayons, candles, carbon paper), coating materials for baking containers, and for fruit preservation.

Electrical components insulation, improve rubber aging resistance and increase flexibility.

It can also be used for oxidation to generate synthetic fatty acids.
