Residue Wax (Foots Oil)

Residue Wax (Foots Oil)

Final remained product of slack wax after pressing and decoloring is Residue Wax (Foots Oil).

It is the remaining residue when process of manufacturing paraffin wax from slack wax is finished , the main usage is for matches industry since its oil content is about 50% and has strong odor and color is quite brown .Foots oil is final remained product of slack wax after pressing and de-coloring . Foots oil is mix of oil and slack wax.Residue Wax, formally known as Foots oil is a commodity derived from the production of semi refined paraffin wax, having almost 60% result from 100% of slacks provided by the oil refineries .

Application of Foots Oil

Brown color , high oiled  wax used for lubricants , explosive , fire work and some matches factories

In Process of Paraffin Wax Production after De-Waxing/ De-Oiling Process, two streams comes out of this stage.One containing the wax and the other containing extracted oil which stored in separate storage tanks. At this point the wax is known as a “product wax” and the oil is called “foots oil”. The product wax is usually processed further and most of the Residue Wax and/or Foots Oil is sold as catalytic cracker feedstock.

Foots oil is a by product of the manufacturing process of paraffin wax

oil content of residue wax is (35+/-5% ) and has line fatty acids and free fatty acids foots oil is a rich source of base oil

Foots oil early used in the candles, polish, matches the ink and paper used carbon

Widely used in rubber, textile, leather, rubber, plastics, lubricants

Plastic processing, polishing, chipboard industry and the general wood working industries.

Foots oil early as Paraffin is a byproduct of the manufacturing process . There are plenty of oils and fatty acids in the product lives up to the base and free fatty acids are a rich source of oil. Foots Oil (residue wax) produced during the extraction of oil from the slack wax or is derived from the producing process of semi-refined paraffin wax .


low melting point

foots oil is full of oil , so the melting point is low , it is about 45 to 50 C in normal temprature , because of this feature packing should be quite good and tight to avoid leakage of oil

Persistence in water

oil amount of the residue wax does not let to be solved in water or other liquid products

Low viscosity

viscosity also related to the oil which is like lubricants

Color: Brown yellow

Packing of Foots Oil

Residue Wax (Foots Oil) will packed in a variety of packaging formats. These include: bulk liquid (via tank truck or railcar), Bulk Packaging in Jumbo bags 600-1000 kg Brand New and/or Used Reconditioned Iron Drums is also available.
