I make pillars and votives, and this is the only wax I will use. I've been using it for years, and it has never failed me. Yes, you need additives for this wax, but once you get the right proportions down of the right additives, no other wax can beat this. The hot and cold throw is amazing, as is the beautiful colors I get with my candles using liquid dye. Candle Science, please don't ever stop carrying IGI 1343!!!

A great base wax for pillars

Without additives, the walls of pillars often sag with this wax but many additives will fix this. Epolene C-10 (gloss crystals) at .5-1% is my usual for a translucent look. The pre-blend pillar wax is opaque, as is a mix of this with 20% stearic.

Great Wax!

I use this for my Cut N Curl Candles, pillars and votives and it works wonderfully. Retains color well and has perfect pliability for my cut n curl candles without the need for additives.

I had a lot of problems with frosting that I've never had before. I won't purchase this wax again.

I don't like anything about this wax.
I had to play with the pour temp for every container.
The translucentcy is weird and sets with ripples. The cold throw is minimal. I will NOT use this again.
