Paraffin Wax 1lb
Fully refined Paraffin Waxes are a hard, white crystalline material derived from petroleum. They are refined by means of a carefully controlled selective solvent process into different melting point grades, each having exceptional gloss and resistance to blocking. Their degree of purity and low odor make these waxes suitable for many applications, including food packaging.
Paraffin waxes are predominately composed of normal, straight chain hydrocarbons. They vary from 18 to 40 carbon atoms and their chain length (i.e. molecular weight) determines their average melting point. Resistance to most acids and alkalis is very good.
Fully Refined Petroleum Waxes are F.D.A. Approved for the end uses indicated under Regulation 21 CFR 178.3710 C.T.F.A. Listed CAS No's that apply 64742-43-4 64742-51-4
