Product Update: July 17, 2019
NGI/EcoSoya informed us that after 20 years in business, they are closing their doors and will permanently discontinue manufacturing all Q-series soy, CB-Advanced, and PB Pillar blend waxes. This wax will no longer be available once stock is depleted. Please watch the video above for more information.
The EcoSoya Q220 does double duty as a container and tart wax. With a slightly higher melt point, this wax stands up to the summer heat, reducing many shipping concerns. The wax also sets up and unmolds easily from clamshells and small metal tart molds. The new EcoSoya Quantum soy waxes feature new technology that virtually eliminates frosting, allows for higher fragrance loads, higher pour temperatures and produces vivid colors. Ideal fragrance load is 9-10% for optimal hot throw. Suggested replacement for CB-Xcel and CB-Advanced wax.
Note: Wax is packaged in pastille form.
45 lb Case Size: 16.5" x 16" x 11.5"
Candle Making Notes:
This wax has a stronger odor than other soy waxes. It is more noticeable when melting large quantities. This is normal and will not affect the finished smell of your scented candle.
In our testing, we found this wax was significantly more prone to wet spots than the Q210. To avoid wet spots, preheating the jar is recommended. This wax is not firm enough for molded or freestanding candles such as pillars and votives.
Based on our testing, we recommend using the LX wick series with this wax. We found it to burn the most evenly across different candle diameters and fragrances. The ECO and HTP wick series created unusual looking mushrooms after burning, most prominent in higher fragrance loads.
When testing a new soy wax, it can be challenging to find the right process. To help you get the best results from NGI's new Q220 soy wax check out our lab notes.
