Soy Wax Flakes
Trade Chem Soy Wax Flakes is a high quality soy wax suitable for container candles as well as other applications.
Trade Chem Soy Wax Flakes has been designed to deliver a stronger natural soy scent – we recommend testing first to ensure it is suitable for your individual requirements.
Soy Wax is made from pure 100% soy beans and carefully selected botanical oils. It has a soft creamy appearance, with a lovely smooth top.
Trade Chem Soy Wax Flakes has excellent adhesion qualities for jars, tins and other containers. The containers don’t need to be pre-heated, but do need to be at a reasonable ambient room temperature. This soy wax has excellent scent throw with both fragrance oils and essential oils alike (Max Scent Load 8%).
This wax has a melt temperature of approx 50C (122F). It may be heated temporarily as high as 87.8C (190F) if powder dyes are being used, but temperatures in excess of this may cause the wax to discolour. Before adding any colour or fragrance, make sure that the melted wax has been thoroughly stirred to ensure an even heat distribution.
This wax works well with most powder, liquid and solid dyes, but to achieve a deep colour, about 30% extra dye will need to be used. When using powder dyes the wax needs to be raised to a temperature of approx 87.8C (190F) and stirred continuously until all the dye has been completely dissolved. It is often easier, when using powder dyes, to dissolve the powder dye in fragrance before adding to the wax.
The recommended maximum scent load for this wax is 8%. If you use more than that, the wax may not be able to hold the fragrance in suspension and you will get ‘wet spots’ where the fragrance has puddled.
It is recommended that any fragrance is added just before pouring – at a temperature no lower than 57.2C (135F). Make an allowance for the slight temperature drop when you add the cool fragrance.
The optimum scent throw from this wax is achieved when you have a full size melt pool with a depth of 1/4 – 1/2″. Not all fragrances are suitable for soya wax and may lead to frosting or poor flame quality. If this happens, try a different fragrance.
