Paraffin is mainly used in candle production. However it is also used in different industrial applications such as wood, paper, construction, agriculture, coating, physical therapy, pharmacy and cosmetic. Thanks to its unique chemical structure and inert nature, it is widely used in applications where water needs to be avoided or have adverse effects. Paraffin with its low thermal conductivity, acts as an insulating material as well and plays important role in coatings, physical therapy materials and in other medical applications.
Paraffin is a side product of crude oil refining. Later it is purified with special techniques and becomes ready to use after tuning its oil content, congealing point, color and smell. Paraffin grades that are served by Rowax Global have congealing point between 45C and 72C, oil content between 1% and 35%.
