Astorlite J223 Wax
Astorlite J223 container wax was designed for excellent hot and cold throw. A single fill can produce a level top if wax is poured at 145-155 degrees, though a top off may be necessary if optimal conditions are not achieved.
Note: Cases contain 6 slabs of wax packaged together in a reinforced cardboard box.
66 lb. Case Size: 19.75" x 12.25" x 10"Due to unprecedented prices on paraffin candle wax, we are offering pallet pricing on all case orders. Therefore, there are no additional price breaks.

Not sure why others have had issues with this wax. It has amazing hot and cold scent throw. If you are patient and let the wax cool down to 150 before pouring it will set up perfectly each time. When I have poured hotter it does sink in the middle requiring a heat source to fix it. So patience is a must! Also the slabs are easy to work with and a large knife cuts through very easily to make smaller blocks for storage. My customers love my candles so this wax is working for me.

I recently purchased 2 cases of the J223 wax. I don't know what is going on with the wax but it hasn't been a one pour wax. We pour at 150 and slow cool it in an old freezer box. Next morning the wax is all sunk in. Have to use a heat gun and fix. Also test burn one after allowing it to cure for 4 days. The fragrance isn't as strong. We were using IGI4633 (formerly J223) from Cajun Candles. We shouldn't have switched. We hope we don't lose to many customers because of this. Can't afford to throw all the candles away.

I have used this wax for over 5 years without a problem until recently. It shank and tunneled around the wick. I am very careful when pouring my candles, I check the temperature of the wax before I pour. I even tried warming the containers before pouring and had the same problem I had to dispose of the candles I poured after attempting to correct the problem. I am a crafter who sells candles to help make money so my husband can go to his doctor weekly for cemo. This is a disaster for me.
