NatureWax 660- (Rapeseed and Coconut Wax for Wax Melts)
A proprietary blend of hydrogenated vegetable glycerides (‘vegetable waxes’) based exclusively on rapeseed and coconut oil. NatureWax 660-55M contains neither ingredients with an animal or mineral/petroleum origin, nor ingredients originating from genetically modified (GM) plant sources.
Vegetable-based, ready-to-use blend for wax melts, tea lights and small (< 60 mm Ø) containers. Some of the key features of NatureWax 660-55M:
• High-thermal stability: tolerant of repeated heating cycles without discoloration or malodour
• Neutral and very stable base odour which supports delicate fragrances
• White/light base ideal for addition of colours, giving strong/vibrant results
• Easy demoulding of even complex forms, with a smooth and shiny surface finish
TECHNICAL CHEMICAL / PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Chemical & Physical Analysis Typical UOM Method
Slip Melting point 50 (122) °C (°F) NEN 6313
Needle Penetration @ 25°C (77°F) 30 d-mm ASTM D1321
Colour Red 0.5 Lovibond 5 ¼ “ ISO 15305
Colour Yellow 5 Lovibond 5 ¼ “ ISO 15305
The wax may be melted at about 70°C (158°F) to incorporate colours and fragrances. Higher temperatures are permissible but heating the wax above 90°C (194°F) for prolonged periods is not recommended.
The ideal pouring temperature will depend on the mould size, the ambient temperature and other ingredients used; some small-scale experimentation is highly recommended before pouring larger quantities. The wax is tolerant to different pour temperatures, and a recommended starting range is 50-60°C (122-140°F).
The melt or candle should be allowed to cool and cure for at least 12 hours before use, preferably in a temperature-controlled environment.
