What is paraffin?

Paraffin is the general name for solid paraffin compounds with high content. Paraffin can be obtained by cold pressing or dissolving in solution, using sweat and other natural or synthetic oil-wax fractions. Paraffin is usually a white, odorless, waxy solid. It is insoluble in water, but soluble in ether, benzene and some esters. 

Paraffin does not react with ordinary chemicals, but burns. Pure paraffin is a good insulator and is superior to most materials except some plastics (especially Teflon). Paraffin is an excellent heat storage material. The main ingredient of wax is paraffin. Here are the types of paraffin wax. Paraffin – Lubricating oil used in solid form and for other purposes. Alkane? ; Liquid paraffin for cosmetic and medical purposes. Mineral oil fraction The oil is a soft paraffin wax.

What is the application of paraffin wax?

Solid paraffin is called paraffin. In liquid form, it is called paraffin oil. There are two types of liquid paraffin oil. It is heavy liquid paraffin or light liquid paraffin oil. Paraffin is known for its pure combustion. Paraffin wax is generally used for lubrication, electrical insulation and wax. Paraffin is a better insulator than all other materials except some plastics. Paraffin wax, unlike kerosene, is sometimes called paraffin. Liquid paraffin is widely used as a lubricant and fuel for jets and rockets, and as a fuel and fuel component for diesel engines and tractors. Helps reduce wear and tear on expensive engines. Paraffin is used as a coolant in heating systems and as a solvent for fats and pesticides.

Paraffin also functions as an adhesive and water repellent. Liquid paraffin is used to stir volatile substances. Paraffin can be used in chambers to seal pipes against corrosion. Paraffin wax is a pure wax used in paints. Paraffin is used to clean heat exchangers and is biodegradable. It is biodegradable, readily available, inexpensive and suitable for use in water systems. Due to its high oil content, crude paraffin is mainly used for matchboxes, wood fiberboards, fabrics and more. The addition of paraffin polyolefins increases the melting point, improves adhesion and flexibility and is widely used in the manufacture of waterproof and waterproof wrapping paper, corrugated board, certain fiber and wax surfaces.

After soaking in paraffin, it can be used to make a variety of waterproof paraffin paper in the food, pharmaceutical, other packaging, metallurgical and printing industries. When paraffin is added to cotton yarn, the fabric becomes soft, supple and elastic. Paraffin can also be used in the manufacture of detergents, emulsifiers, dispersants, plastics, lubricants and more.

Fully refined and semi-finished paraffin wax is widely used as raw material and packaging material for food, oral medicine, certain products (paraffin paper, crayon, wax, carbon paper, etc.) and roofing material for bakery utensils. .. and fruit preservation. , Insulation of electrical components, Prevention of rubber aging, Increased flexibility. It can also be used for antioxidants to form synthetic fatty acids.

What are the changes in the paraffin market?

The candle industry has undergone significant changes in supply and demand, competition, technical and economic factors over the past three decades. Initially, paraffin was an ingredient that was not used in oil refining. Hundreds of valuable paraffin applications have been identified and developed over the years.

However, paraffin filtration efficiency and quantity have significant advantages over most filters. As a result, most refineries are switching from extracted paraffin production to contact wax removal. Removing the wax catalyst from the oil restores the wax molecules and prevents paraffin formation. China is a major exporter of paraffin wax and imports of paraffin wax are relatively low.

Paraffin wax imports from China are mainly concentrated in the specialty wax market, where domestic production is low, so there is no significant impact on the paraffin wax market. .. In general, the two groups do not have a temporary advantage in the paraffin wax market.
