Dubai paraffin wax manufacturer

Dubai paraffin wax manufacturer is a general term used to refer to the mixture of long-chain lipids forming a protective coating on plant leaves and fruits but also in animals algae, fungi and bacteria.

Some “Dubai paraffin wax” are of mineral origin. The various materials named waxes do not form a chemically homogeneous group also all waxes are water-resistant materials made up of various substances including hydrocarbons (normal or branched alkanes and alkanes) .

More commonly, UAE wax are esters of an alcohol other than glycerol and a long chain acid (wax esters) meanwhile Dubai paraffin wax esters are saponified by hot alkaline solutions and give a fatty acid and an alcohol.

Dubai paraffin is a term for a range of natural or synthetic products. For convenience the range can be divided in :

  • Natural waxes
  • Synthetic waxes
  • Mineral hydrocarbon waxes
  • Petroleum waxes

Animal wax from Dubai made in UAE

The natural wax from Dubai can be of vegetable or animal origin.

The predominant UAE wax of animal origin is beeswax .

The most important representatives of vegetable origin are:

The most commonly known animal wax is beeswax. A major component of the beeswax used in constructing honey combs

Its melting point is 62-65 C.

Petroleum derived UAE paraffin

The Dubai paraffin wax ® is a mixtures of alkanes usually in a chain lengths. These materials represent a significant fraction of petroleum. Paraffin waxes are mixtures of saturated n- and ISO- alkanes, naphthenes, and alkyl- and naphthene-substituted aromatic compounds. The degree of branching has an important influence on the properties. Millions of tons of paraffin waxes are produced annually. They are used in foods (such as chewing gum and cheese wrapping), in candles and cosmetics, as non-stick and waterproofing coatings and in polishes.

What are the components of Dubai paraffin

Biochemists link paraffin waxes with the thin layer of fatty constituents that cover the leaves of plants or provide a surface coating for insects or the skin of animals. All of these tend to contain wax esters as major components, i.e. Esters of long-chain fatty alcohols with long-chain fatty acids.

What is the melting point of Dubai paraffin wax?

Melting point of Dubai paraffin wax is a class of chemical compounds that are plastic (malleable) near ambient temperatures. They are also a type of lipid. Characteristically, they melt above 45 °C (113 °F) to give a low viscosity liquid. Waxes are insoluble in water but soluble in organic, non polar solvents.
