Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product of crude oil refineries. After careful processing and refining, it becomes a white, colorless and translucent solid wax which consists of a mixture of solid straight-chain hydrocarbons ranging in melting point from about 48°C to 66°C (120°F to 150°F). Because of the very stable nature of paraffin wax, it is widely used for many application exploiting the property of wax to resists water, moisture, air, scratch, ozone, and other undesirable things. Paraffin wax is used in applications such as for candle, tire and rubber industry, resist dyeing material for Batik industry, in plastic masterbatch, as well as in hot melt adhesive industry.
Wax emulsion is a stable mixture of paraffin wax in water. Wax emulsion is the liquid form of wax with water-based technology. It is more convenient to use and easy to handle at room temperature. Kirana wax emulsion is used mainly for particle board applications.
Paraffinic Oil is hydrocarbon oil contained mostly n-paraffin branch. Paraffinic Oil is used as base oil in many applications such as lubricant, printing ink, and also chemical and material support for the manufacturers of rubber goods, such as: shoes outsoles, vehicle tires, fanbelt, and other automotive spareparts.
