The gel wax features

Gel wax for candle making is a translucent wax with the consistency of jelly. It is created using a combination of mineral oil and polymer resin, this gives the wax a slow melt rate and a long burn time. The finished candle will have a longer burn time, making the wax good value for money, even though it is more expensive than paraffin waxes. Due to the clarity of the wax, it is common to find gel candles with embeds inside, such as sliced dried fruits, small glass ornaments, glitter or anything that won’t melt at a temperature lower than the wax.

Gel wax can only be used in containers, as it doesn’t have the stiffness to stand on its own.  If you want to colour the wax, we recommend using our dye chips however if you add too much the may lose its transparency. Gel wax has a higher melt point than paraffin wax and should be melted in a pot over direct heat. It does tend to bubble whilst melting, to avoid this heat the wax to a temperature in excess of 110 °C , but don’t exceed 125°C as the wax could burn.

The gel wax package

Due to the particularity of jelly wax, it also has its own unique characteristics on the packaging. First of all, he is packed in bags, each bag is 25kg, and the jelly wax also has a special requirement during transportation, that is, he cannot be palletized.

Because the state of jelly wax is solidified at room temperature, and it is the same as its characteristics, it is elastic solidification, so it will not be deformed, so when shipping, the jelly wax in the bag will not Fits well into shipping, the bulging bag is hard to hold and slips off very easily.
