General description of semi refined paraffin wax 5-7% oil content
It means the slabs of semi refined paraffin wax 5-7% oil content can have 5% , 5.2% , 5.3% , 5.5% , 6.2% , 6.8% , 6.9% , 7% oil content, melting point can be minimum 58 c and maximum 64 c normally, semi refined paraffin wax 5-7% heavy grade (melting point 62-64 c) is used in hot weather countries like : south Africa , India, Pakistan , Kenya , UAE , Venezuela , Thailand , Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq , Bahrain , Jordan , Ghana , Colombia , Brazil ,because if it is used in hot weather paraffin will be melted and will make problem for the final product and also in packing and delivery process, leakage can make problem.
Semi refined paraffin wax 5-7% light grade (melting point 58-60 c); is used in mild and cold weather countries like : Ukraine , Turkey , Germany , England , Russia , France , Italy , Norway , nether land , Finland , Switzerland , Sweden; Denmark , Canada , Australia , New Zealand .
Since congealing point is about 2 degree lower than melting point, in light grade congealing of paraffin especially in candle needs lower weather degree.
Uses of semi refined paraffin wax 5-7% oil content
- candles; to make candles
- bottles; to seal top of the bottle by melted wax
- irons; to keep them smooth
