Normal Paraffin

Normal Paraffin is the major raw material for the manufacture of LAB . Normal Paraffin is extracted from kerosene  which contains an average of 20/25% paraffin and therefore is generally produced close to a refinery as the kerosene , free of the paraffin removed has to be returned to the refinery .

Normal Paraffin Over 80% of Normal Paraffin is used for production of LAB the remaining N-Paraffin may be further processed to obtain special solvents used for various industrial applications including synthetic resins , paints and varnishes , degreasing agents and printing inks . Normal paraffin operate as a dissolver in industrial for producing polymers and resins , colors , artistic coverings  and grease polisher
