Paraffin Wax 


Paraffin wax is a white or colorless soft solid derivable from petroleum, which can be processed and achieved in a wide range of physical and chemical properties, using different refining methods.


Paraffin waxes are mostly graded according to the oil content, ranging from around 0.5% to above 20%. The change in oil content can lead to different physical and chemical behaviors of Paraffin Wax.

Paraffin wax is mostly found in two types of Fully Refined and Semi Refined, with a typical melting point between about 46 and 68 °C, and a density of around 900 Kg/m3

It is insoluble in water, but soluble in Ether, Benzene, and certain esters. Paraffin is unaffected by most common chemical reagents but burns readily.

Paraffin wax is also an excellent material for storing heat, with a specific heat capacity of 2.14–2.9 J g−1 K−1 and a heat of fusion of 200–220 J g−1. 

Wax expands considerably when it melts and this allows its use in wax thermostatic element thermostats for industrial, domestic, and, particularly, automobile purposes.

The main applications are cosmetics, the food industry, coating, adhesive and hot melts, heat and electric insulators, ink, paper, tire, rubber,…
