  • Red Casting Wax is a hard casting wax that holds great detail. It is melted and poured into molds. After a short period the unsolidified wax is poured out of the mold leaving a wax shell conforming to the the interior. This process of "slush casting" is repeated several times to build up the required wax thickness. This wax shell is then used as a pattern in the investment shell casting process.

Paraffin Wax
Fully refined Paraffin Waxes are a hard, white crystalline material derived from petroleum. They are refined by means of a carefully controlled selective solvent process into different melting point grades, each having exceptional gloss and resistance to blocking. Their degree of purity and low odor make these waxes suitable for many applications, including food packaging.
Composition: Paraffin waxes are predominately composed of normal, straight chain hydrocarbons. They vary from 18 to 40 carbon atoms and their chain length (i.e. molecular weight) determines their average melting point. Resistance to most acids and alkalis is very good.
 
Typical End Uses:
  • Food Wrap
  • Corrugated Containers
  • Nursery Stock
  • Candles
  • Textiles
  • Cheese and Vegetable Coatings
  • Hot Melt Adhesives and Coatings
  • Cosmetics
  • Inks
  • Polishes

Paraffin Slab
  • Paraffin Waxes come from the dewaxing of paraffin distillates and have relatively large brittle crystals (Macrocrystalline) and generally have little affinity for oil. It is mostly found as a white, odorless, tasteless, waxy solid, with a typical melting point between about 47°C and 65 °C. It is insoluble in water, but soluble in ether, benzene, and certain esters. Paraffin is unaffected by most common chemical reagents, but burns readily. Common uses include but are not limited to: Candlemaking, Coatings for waxed paper, Coating for many kinds of hard cheese, like Edam cheese, As a key component in wax used for investment casting, for sealing jars, cans, and bottles, for grip on surfboards and for polishing skis.

Beeswax
Beeswax, is excreted by the honeybee, to construct the honeycomb and is found on all continents. The color of the crude beeswax is dependent upon the type of flower which gave the pollen, the age of the hive and its care, and the amount of propolis present. Not all crude Beeswax is suitable for bleaching.
Natural Beeswax is amorphous and varies in color from a deep brown to a light taffy shade. The wax has a distinctive honey odor.
