The petroleum paraffin wax is a mixture of solid hydrocarbons methane series which widely used in the petrochemical, chemical industry, for the manufacture of household goods, for impregnating paper, textile and metal surfaces.

The petroleum paraffin is distinguished by the cleaning degree:

  • a highly-depurated (mark P,V);
  • a peeled (mark T, S)

The candle paraffin in Kiev

Candle paraffin is a highly purified product has been applied for:

  • production of decorative candles;
  • coating and impregnating flexible packing for food products preserving the elasticity at low temperatures.
  • various wax alloys;
  • There are paraffin complexes of keritherapy and dressing fabrics in the medicine. Also synthetic fatty acid, protein and vitamin concentrates, olefins are made from paraffin;
  • as a greases component, as additives for motor lubricating oils;
  • grease for rubbing wood pieces (rails drawers, cupboards and so on);
  • when the product is mixed with gasoline - anticorrosion coating;
  • for the production of petroleum jelly;
  • in the radio engineering.

The candle paraffin has a low viscosity in the molten state which defines the usability. It’s a product of petroleum distillation which is significantly supplanted stearin and added to the candle paraffin that they do not stick to the mold in which they were cast. In the modern chemical industry, petroleum paraffin is removed by dewaxing. As rule, there are two solvents which are used in this technique: toluene or acetone, also known as low-boiling solvents, poorly and good soluble paraffin which are remaining components of the minerals. Then wax cake is separated from which the solvent was removed by distillation. The candle paraffin has a relatively low melting point compared with the candle wax.
