Slack Waxes

Slack Waxes

Industrial Raw Materials LLC introduces a new slack wax INDRAWAX 51-AS to the US market. It has a good color, relatively low oil content, and will be consistently available to early adopters.

Slack waxes, as opposed to fully refined waxes, have an oil content of from 5 to 30%, depending on the product. They are a welcome by-product of the production of lubricating oils. They can be productively employed in many industrial processes as they are; or they can be mixed, blended, or further refined.
The melting points of slack wax varies from 105°F to 150°F.
Some examples of applications for slack waxes: in wax emulsions, as binders and water-proofing in artificial woods; in matches; in jar candles; in rust-protection products; in industrial lubricants; in arena-footing; in soil or turf protection; and in fireplace products.
