structure of microcrystalline wax

Heavy microcrystalline wax is made from de-waxing heavy raw materials (Raw materials of high boiling;point). Its crystals are from variety of smaller paraffin crystals and it s molecular mass is about 450-800 and The number of carbon compounds that make it between 32 and 57 . Micro crystalline waxes are mixed with sulfuric acid, Nitric acid and sulfonic acid better compared with paraffin types and reason of this combination is the presence of hydrogen on The third type carbon. Oxidized waxes of these kinds are used in floor wax manufacturing industry (POLISH). Also used as a suspension pigment in paint industry.
