Microcrystalline Wax are a type of wax produced by de-oiling petrolatum, as part of the petroleum refining process. In contrast to the more familiar paraffin wax which contains mostly unbranched alkanes, microcrystalline wax contains a higher percentage of isoparaffinic (branched) hydrocarbons and naphthenic hydrocarbons. It is characterized by the fineness of its crystals in contrast to the larger crystal of paraffin wax. It consists of high molecular weight saturated aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is generally darker, more viscous, denser, tackier and more elastic than paraffin waxes, and has a higher molecular weight and melting point. The elastic and adhesive characteristics of microcrystalline waxes are related to the non-straight chain components which they contain. Typical microcrystalline wax crystal structure is small and thin, making them more flexible than paraffin wax. It is commonly used in cosmetic formulations.
We offer wide range of Montan Wax. Micro-Crystalline Wax are relatively soft & flexible and known for their good adhesive properties. Further, these also have high sealing strength and thus used as a bonding agent in laminated sheet material and for other allied applications. In addition, the waxes form a smooth paste and added withoils or solvents, which makes these suitable for making polish formulations. Thus, these waxes are used in printing inks & general purpose lubricant in industries. These are available in the durable packaging of 25 kgs cartons as per the specific clients need.
Palm Wax is an environmentally friendly product as it comes from a sustainable and renewable source and it burns cleanly. Palm cultivation is perhaps, the world's most environmentally friendly commercial crop. We choose to buy our palm wax from Malaysia because its government has put a moratorium on forest clearing for the establishment of oil palm plantations.
Only areas already used for agriculture will be allowed to convert to palm oil production. The oil palm has been grown as a commercial crop in well managed and regulated estates in Malaysia since 1917. The palm produces fruits in bunches which are harvested and sent to palm oil mills to undergo sterilization, bunch stripping, oil extraction, oil clarification and purification. This crude palm oil then becomes the raw material for palm oil refineries where it is further processed by neutralization, bleaching and deodorization.
The Refined palm oil then undergoes fractionation by which palm olein and palm stearin are produced and these in turn are further fractionated to obtain specialized products. These range from cooking/frying oil, shortening/cooking fats, creamers, waxes and many others.
About 25% of the palm oil available is used for non-edible products which include agricultural emulsifiers, stabilizers in paper and PVC manufacturing, a whole range of soaps, detergents, toiletries and candle making wax. Palm waxes are made from a 100% Natural Palm Oil Based raw materials. The various blends of palm waxes are formulated from the many fractions of palm oil and the many fractions of the palm oil based oleo-chemicals. Some fractions are soft and some are hard. The selections of the various fractions of palm oil and oleo-chemicals are made based on the many requirements of making Natural Candles.
Natural Palm Wax Candles are the first choice for a number of reasons:
Carnauba also called Brazil wax and palm wax, is a wax of the leaves of the palm Copernicia prunifera (Synonym: Copernicia cerifera), a plant native to and grown only in the northeastern Brazilian states of Piaui, Ceara, and Rio Grande do Norte.It is known as 'queen of waxes' and in its pure state, usually comes in the form of hard yellow-brown flakes. It is obtained from the leaves of the carnauba palm by collecting and drying them, beating them to loosen the wax, then refining and bleaching the wax.
Carnauba wax can produce a glossy finish and as such is used in automobile waxes,shoe polishes, dental floss, food products such as sweets, instrument polishes, and floor and furniture waxes and polishes, especially when mixed with beeswax and withturpentine. Use for paper coatings is the most common application in the United States.It was commonly used in its purest form as a coating on speedboat hulls in the early '60s to enhance speed and aid in handling in salt water environments. It is also the main ingredient in surfboard wax, combined with coconut oil.
Because of its hypoallergenic and emollient properties as well as its shine, carnauba wax appears as an ingredient in many cosmetics formulas where it is used to thicken lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow, foundation, deodorant, various skin care preparations, sun care preparations, etc. It is also used to make cutler's resin.
It is the finish of choice for most briar or smoking pipes. It produces a high gloss finish when buffed on to wood. This finish dulls with time rather than flaking off (as is the case with most other finishes used).
Although too brittle to be used by itself, carnauba wax is often combined with other waxes (principally beeswax) to treat and waterproof many leather products where it provides a high-gloss finish and increases leather's hardness and durability.
It is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as a tablet-coating agent. Adding the carnauba wax aids in the swallowing of tablets for patients. A very small amount (less than a hundredth of one percent by weight, i.e., 30 grams for a 300 kg batch) is sprinkled onto a batch of tablets after they have been sprayed and dried. The wax and tablets are then tumbled together for a few minutes before being discharged from the tablet-coating machine.
In 1890, Charles Tainter patented the use of carnauba wax on phonograph cylinders as a replacement for a mixture ofparaffin and beeswax.
Carnauba wax may be used as a mold release agent for manufacture of fibre-reinforced plastics. An aerosol mold release agent is formed by dissolving carnauba wax in a solvent. Unlike silicone or PTFE, carnauba is suitable for use with liquidepoxy, epoxy molding compounds (EMC), and some other plastic types and generally enhances their properties. Carnauba wax is not very soluble in chlorinated or aromatic hydrocarbons. Carnauba is used in melt/castable explosives to produce an insensitive explosive formula such as Composition B, which is a blend of RDX andTNT.
We offer wide range of Rice Bran Wax.
Montan Wax, also known as lignite wax or OP wax, is a hard wax obtained by solvent extraction of certain types of ligniteor brown coal. Commercially viable deposits exist in only a few locations, including Amsdorf, Germany, and in the Ione Basin near Ione, California.
The most commonly known animal wax is Bees Wax, but other insects secrete waxes. A major component of the beeswax used in constructing honeycombs is the ester myricyl palmitate which is an ester of triacontanol and palmitic acid. Its melting point is 62-65 °C. Spermaceti occurs in large amounts in the head oil of the. One of its main constituents iscetyl palmitate, another ester of a fatty acid and a fatty alcohol. Lanolin is a wax obtained from wool, consisting of esters ofsterols. Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honey bees of the genusApis. The wax is formed by eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments 4 through 7 of worker bees. The workers collect it and use it for structural material in the hive. Chemically, beeswax consists of mainly esters of fatty acids and various long-chain alcohols.
