What is paraffin wax?

Paraffin  wax is a waxy substance derived from petroleum. It is composed of hydrocarbons and usually has a white or colorless appearance. Paraffin wax is solid at room temperature, but can become liquid when heated. Its high melting point and melting temperature allow it to be used in a variety of applications such as candle making, embalming, lubricant manufacturing and cosmetics. Paraffin wax is also widely used as an insulating material for the protection of cables and electrical equipment.

Classification of paraffin wax?

Paraffin wax can be divided into fully refined paraffin wax and semi-refined paraffin wax.

Fully refined paraffin wax

Fully refined paraffin wax is a high-purity paraffin wax that has been distilled and fractionated multiple times. It usually has a higher melting point and fewer impurities, and is a high-quality industrial raw material. Fully refined paraffin wax is widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other high-end markets.

Semi-refined paraffin wax

Semi-refined paraffin refers to paraffin that has been distilled and filtered only once. It has a higher impurity content and a lower melting point and viscosity. Semi-refined paraffin wax is commonly used in various industrial fields, such as the rubber industry, lubricants, paints and waterproofing materials.
