Perfect for beginner and experienced candle makers alike, IGI 6046 Coconut/Paraffin Blend Wax is an ideal wax for container candles. It offers the excellent scent throw of paraffin with the slow burn of coconut wax with no additional additives necessary. Just add fragrance and dye.
Featuring a bright white hue, IGI 6046 provides a great canvas for bright, true colors from dyes when compared to other vegetable wax blends. The excellent glass adhesion of this wax makes it ideal for clear and transparent containers.
IGI 6046 is a very soft wax that is packaged in 10 lb bags. We recommend using latex or nitrile gloves to make working with the wax a little easier.
Candle Maker's Notes:
Paraffin waxes tend to have darker soot over soy when burning. If you're experiencing excessive soot, we recommend testing different wick sizes, or double wicking in larger containers (3.3"/8.4 cm diameter or larger). Additionally, too much fragrance oil can also cause sooting depending on the fragrance oil. We’ve found that reducing fragrance load to 6%-8% is plenty strong for most fragrances and helps to minimize shooting.
- The melt point of this wax is 120ºF (48.9°C). Finished candles may melt during shipping without extra care during warmer months.
