High Melting Point - This wax is ideal for making cylindrical candles, hand-dipped fine candles, molded candles, shaped or engraved gift candles. This wax is very hard and does not retain its aroma. It has a melting point of 145 degrees Fahrenheit or 63 degrees Celsius. This type of wax is required to make the above types of wax so that the candle does not sink itself when it is cooled. If a candle is made from this wax, an additive is required.
Medium Melting Point - This wax is commonly used to make prayer candles and is sometimes used to make container candles with a melting point of 127-145 degrees Fahrenheit or 53-63 degrees Celsius. This wax is harder to touch than a low melting wax, but it is better in terms of shape. This wax is preferred for maintaining the fragrance, but requires the use of an additive. This type of wax is lumpy and needs to be cut into small pieces to melt.
Low melting point - This type of wax melts at 127 degrees Fahrenheit or 53 degrees Celsius. It is a soft wax. Soft wax is an ideal material for making container candles, and has the characteristics of lasting fragrance retention until the candle burns out. So far, soft waxes are highly flexible and do not require the use of additives. Softer paraffin has many advantages, however, it is more difficult to process and it emits more smoke than other waxes.
Once you have decided which type of candle to make, you can choose the most suitable paraffin. No matter where you buy the paraffin, you must know the melting point of the paraffin you buy. The gift candle will look good, you need to buy it when you buy it. Detailed instructions for the use of these waxes.
