Wax the material

Waxes are a diverse class of organic compounds that are lipophilic, malleable solids near ambient temperatures.

They include higher alkanes and lipids, typically with melting points above about 40 °C (104 °F), melting to give low viscosity liquids.

Waxes are insoluble in water but soluble in organic, nonpolar solvents.

Natural waxes of different types are produced by plants and animals and occur in petroleum.”

Waxes are classified into natural - plant and animal waxes and petroleum derived. I skip the typology here and focus on the properties and applications.

Depending on the desired properties and final application both types of waxes undergo selective chemical modifications.

Each production technique generates fluid or solid products with slightly different properties.

The description of the wax properties may include information about

  • Viscosity (cP)
  • Dropping point (°C)
  • Congealing point (°C)
  • Penetration (mm)
  • Particle size (µm)
