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.

Paraffin wax is edible. Many times it is added to chocolates. Chocolate is glossy and can remain solid at room temperature because of the paraffin wax that is in it. Not all paraffin wax is edible. Some of it is used in making candles so it is best to check the label closely when purchasing paraffin wax.
