Beeswax， known as yellow wax and beeswax. Beeswax is a fatty substance secreted by four pairs of wax glands in the abdomen of worker bees of the right age in the bee colony. Beeswax is divided into beeswax and white beeswax. The price is high. High-quality beeswax has a honey fragrance and is natural and environmentally friendly. It is mainly used to increase the hardness and density of the wax. Like ordinary soft soybean wax, it can be mixed with beeswax to prolong the burning time of the finished product.
At the same time, because beeswax has a high melting point, is relatively hard, brittle, and shrinks very much when it is cold, it is easy to take off the cup and deform when making cup wax. Generally, it is 2:1 with soybean wax or 3:1 ratio mixed use. Increase the smoothness of the wax surface, and it will not make the scented candles of pure soybean wax too soft.
Paraffin wax, also known as crystal wax, is a non-polar solvent soluble in gasoline, carbon disulfide, xylene, ether, benzene, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, naphtha, etc., and insoluble in polar solvents such as water and methanol .
Each type of wax is divided into different varieties according to the melting point, generally every 2°C, such as 52, 54, 56, 58 and other grades. Crude paraffin has a high oil content and is mainly used in the manufacture of matches, fiberboards, tarpaulins, etc. Fully refined paraffin wax and semi-refined paraffin wax are widely used, mainly used as components and packaging materials of food, oral medicine and some commodities (such as wax paper, crayons, candles, carbon paper), coating materials for baking containers, and used for fruit preservation , Insulation of electrical components, improvement of rubber aging resistance and flexibility. It can also be used for oxidation to generate synthetic fatty acids.
The melting point of beeswax is relatively low, and its melting rate and solidification rate are relatively slow; in contrast, paraffin wax has a relatively high melting point, and its melting rate and solidification rate are relatively fast.
For paraffin wax , it is mainly in candle making industry ,so it is cheaper than paraffin wax
