General Properties of Semi Refined Paraffin Wax

Semi Refined Paraffin Wax  is more than 1% oil content.

The price of semi refined paraffin wax is lower than fully refined paraffin wax .

Paraffin Wax is a natural product derived from the molecular components of decayed vegetable and animal material. Paraffin wax consists of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons with the following general properties.

  • Non-reactive
  • Non-toxic
  • Good water barrier
  • Clean-burning fuel
  • Colorless

Paraffin waxes are characterized by a clearly defined crystal structure and have the tendency to be hard and brittle. The melt point of paraffin waxes generally falls between 120° and 160°F.

Individual test methods are determined by molecular size & structure, chemical composition and oil content. Paraffin wax consists mostly of straight chain hydrocarbons with 80 to 90% normal paraffin content and the balance consists of branched paraffins (iso-paraffins) and cycloparaffins.

Application of Semi Refined Paraffin Wax

Semi refined paraffin wax is used in PVC , laminate , Candle Making , paint, fire works and matches industry .

  • -Candle production like molding,  dipping,  drawing,  extrusion/pressing
  • -Polishes to improve buff ability,  to provide solvent binding and solvent retention properties
  • -Rubber and Tires as mould release agents, plasticizers and lubricants in rubber blends
  • -Cosmetics and Pharmacy to act as base component in various formulations
  • -Paper Coating formulations covering packaging of food and non food articles
  • -Hot Melt Adhesives as cost-competitive blend component
  • -Chemical Industry as processing agents,  raw materials,  components of finished products

Semi Refined Paraffin wax has been used for various applications involving coatings, and in applications using the paraffin wax as a-binder. In some cases, it is highly desirable and often essential that the paraffin wax have good electrical surface resistance, especially under high humidity conditions. Such characteristic paraflins are employed in electronic precipitators as binders for glass mats. One of the chief troubles with the filter media used in the electronic precipitators results from high conductivity of the under conditions of high humidity. Paper mat and glass mat bonded with polystyrene were found to have a resistivity in the range of 125 to 315 megohms.

Paraffin-bonded glass mat has a resistivity of 3000-50G0 megohms. Although-desired glass mat treated with the vapors ‘of an organehalogenosilane, for example,- dimethyl dichlorosilane, has a resistivity of 200,000 megohms, such treated glass mats are unsatisfactory and unsuitessential that the glass mat be bonded with some material which has adequate resistivity and for this reason attempts have been made to use peraffin wax as the bonding agent. However, up to the present time, so far as is known, the attempts to use paraifin wax as a binder have been unsuccessful because of the poor resistivity of the combination of the paraffin and glass fiber filler.

Packing of Paraffin Wax

We produce paraffin wax in 5 kg slabs and pack 5 slab in carton , pp (poly propylene)bags or gunny and there is the possibility of palatalizing too.
