What to Consider

When it comes to manufacturing processes or product development, selecting the appropriate paraffin wax is crucial. Here at Poth Hille, your trusted paraffin wax suppliers, we stock a wide range of grades for our customers to take their pick from. If you’re not sure where to begin, read on for how to choose the best paraffin wax for your needs.

About Paraffin Wax

Paraffin wax is derived from petroleum, and it is a versatile substance with a low melting point and high heat retention properties. It’s suited to applications such as beauty treatments, physiotherapy, fruit coating, cheese preservation, arts and crafts, dentistry, and many more. Its versatility has made it very popular with our customers, and it is one of our bestselling waxes. To ensure the best results for your project, you should take care to ensure that you are ordering the right paraffin wax.

Melting Point

The melting point of paraffin wax determines which applications it is most suitable for. Lower melting point waxes are ideal for jobs that require quick and easy melting, such as candle-making or wax coatings. Higher melting point waxes are suitable for applications that require stability and resistance to heat. This could be anything from packaging to electrical insulation.

Oil Content

The oil content in paraffin wax affects far much more than you’d think, including flexibility, hardness, and melting characteristics. Higher oil content makes the wax softer and more pliable, while lower oil content results in a harder, more brittle wax. You should consider the specifics of your application when thinking about oil content – and please feel free to get in touch with our team if you have any questions.

Grades of Paraffin Wax

These waxes are available in different grades, with each one boasting its own unique benefits. These variations between these grades can include differences in additives, purification processes, or how if the wax comes in block or pellet form. Take the time to explore the available grades to find the most suitable option for your business. We have detailed information regarding each grade for you to browse at your leisure.

Compatibility with Other Materials

You should always think about the compatibility of paraffin wax with any other materials involved in your manufacturing process. Check that the chosen wax does not negatively interact with other components or materials in your formulation, as this could lead to issues such as incompatibility or reduced performance.
