Paraffin wax has a very high heat capacity, meaning it is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat. A paraffin wax spa takes advantage of paraffin‘s heat-retaining capacity in a simple process called heat transfer. In technical terms, heat is transferred to the core of the affected area as Paraffin wax-goes through a phase change. As it melts, the paraffin becomes a liquid and is able to retain more heat. Then, when a hand, foot, or other area is dipped into the heated bath, the phase of the paraffin that surrounds the dipped area quickly changes into a solid. The heat that is given off is called the heat of fusion.
More simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin comes out when it solidifies into a comforting paraffin coating, thus transferring the heat into the affected limb. Another way to look at it is the paraffin is the medium that transfers heat from the Therabath to the painful area.
At the same time, the heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin. This is why paraffin is so beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant.
Paraffin therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying deep heat to relieve pain and stiffness. The warm paraffin also moisturizes for healthier looking, softer skin.
Therabath warm paraffin wax treatments are fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, providing heat therapy for many different applications from arthritis joint pain relief to salon hand, foot, and facial services.
Therabath paraffin baths can be used in the home, office, hospital, or clinic …
This type of paraffin wax is Micro crystalline Wax Which facility to supply pure micro crystalline wax or in combination with paraffin or other performance additives..
Derived from the dew axing of base oil in the refinery process, micro crystalline waxes are made up of saturated hydrocarbons possessing a fine-grained crystal structure which renders them much more flexible than paraffin waxes. Colors available range from white through yellow to dark brown in appearance. Our products are producing by full QC supervision according to ASTM standard and will be guaranteed by Faragam Petro Tech Company.
Uses of Micro crystalline wax include candle making, cosmetics, dental and pharmaceutical, food and beverage, fruit coating, jeweler waxes, laminating, paper and board coating, polishes and poultry defeathering, ski, snowboard and surfboard coating.
Micro waxes blend well with solvents to form a smooth paste, they increase tensile strength and rigidity, while improving stability and scuff resistance.
Typical uses can be in the adhesives, castings, corrugated board, cosmetics, rubber and Tyre industries.
Our Micro crystalline wax is produced in 5 kg slabs which can be packed in carton or polypropylene bag ability of palatalizing too.
Referring to Micro crystalline wax application, this product is exporting to some different countries, such as: African, European, South American, Asian countries.

If you walked out into an orchard, picked an apple from the tree and rubbed that apple on your shirt, you would notice that it shined – you’ve just polished the natural wax that an apple produces to protect its high water content. Without wax, fruits and vegetables like apples would lose their vital crispness and moisture through normal respiration and transpiration – eventually leaving them soft and dry.
After harvest, apples are washed and brushed to remove leaves and field dirt before they are packed in cartons for shipping to your local market. This cleaning process removes the fruit’s original wax coating or polishing, so to protect the fruit many apple packers will re-apply a commercial grade wax. One pound of wax may cover as many as 160,000 pieces of fruit; perhaps two drops is the most paraffin wax covering each apple.
Waxes have been used on fruits and vegetables since the 1920s. They are all made from natural ingredients, and are certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be safe to eat. They come from natural sources including carnauba wax, from the leaves of a Brazilian palm; candellia wax, derived from reed-like desert plants of the genus Euphorbia; and food-grade shellac, which comes from a secretion of the lac bug found in India and Pakistan. These waxes are also approved for use as food additives for candy and pastries. (Now you know why your chocolate bars melt in your mouth but not in your hand…yes, it is because of paraffin wax.)
The commercial waxes do not easily wash off because they adhere to any natural wax remaining on the fruit after cleaning. Waxed produce can be scrubbed with a vegetable brush briefly in lukewarm water and rinsed before eating to remove wax and surface dirt. (Using detergents on porous foods like apples is not recommended!) ”
You’ve got your mould or your container and you’re ready to make some candles but how much Paraffin wax do you need?
Find out more about the different Paraffin waxes available. Specially paraffin oil content.
It’s easy to work out.
1-Fill the container or mold with water (if it’s a mould, cover the hole with your finger) to the proper level
2-Tip the water into a measuring jug, round up to the nearest 10ml or
3-so Deduct 20%
That’s the number of grams of Paraffin wax to use
For example if your container takes 250ml of water, you would use 200g of Paraffin wax (250-50).
This is because 1ml of water weighs exactly 1 gram (for the nerds amongst you this is because a kilogram is defined as the weight of 1 litre of water). So 250ml of water weighs 250g. However, Paraffin wax is slightly less dense than water so you need to deduct 20% or so to get the right weight in Paraffin wax
The first major type of crude oil, paraffin, which Elkins (alkanes) also called. Paraffin general formula is CnH2n + 2. The simplest and lightest series paraffin molecule, methane has the formula CH4. Paraffin with fewer than five carbon atoms are gaseous at normal temperature and pressures. In addition to methane, other gaseous paraffin include ethane, propane and butane. For simplicity, these are sometimes also called C1 to C4. C5 to C15 normal paraffin in the temperature and pressure of the liquid. Hydrocarbons with more than 15 carbon atoms (C15), highly viscous or viscous and solid waxes to their own state. Paraffin of the C40 and above all are.
Paraffin wax against many acids and alkali resistant and suitable as corrosion protection coatings for industrial barrels and tanks. In addition, due to their remarkable properties as electrical insulation and has many applications in various industries including textile is used.
Paraffin wax is normally divide in Fully refined and Semi refined types. Fully and Semi refined paraffin wax have difference in oil content and because of that they have differences in application. Also, paraffin wax is categorized by related shapes, such as Granule Paraffin Wax, Flake Paraffin wax, Powder Paraffin wax, Slab paraffin wax.
