Paraffin Wax


Paraffin – Pure without compromise

Poth Hille is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of this traditional, multi-purpose wax and we can offer a wide range of grades to meet our customers’ requirements.

Paraffin Waxes are white, odourless and tasteless waxes and are made up from straight chain hydrocarbons C20-C40. They have low oil content, are insoluble in water and have excellent electrical insulator properties.

Paraffin waxes provide a hard, glossy finish which gives a shiny coating for many foodstuffs. Their superior waterproofing properties make them an ideal coating in the cardboard and paper industries. With excellent burn and scent throw qualities this makes them an essential part of a candlemakers portfolio.

Having FDA approval, these waxes are used extensively in cosmetics, food coatings, pharmaceuticals and children’s crayons. Their hard glossy nature means they can be used in polishes, investment casting, leather care products and end sealing of timber to prevent water damage and splitting. The lower melt point waxes can be used for physiotherapy, manicure and pedicure applications.

Paraffin waxes are manufactured from selected slackwaxes to produce fully refined, low oil content products. They are available in a wide range of melting points in both pellet and slab form

Poth Hille can advise you to help select the optimum wax for your requirement.
