- This wax should be heated to a temperature between 55 – 90°C maximum.
- If wax is melted at high temperatures over long periods it may discolour.
- Additives, fragrance and dye can be added once the wax is completely liquid.
- Fragrances are usually added at 6% to 8%. We’ve tried it with 12% just to see if it would produce wet spots and it was still able to hold the fragrance with good cold and hot throw.
- Pouring should take place between 50-70°C and curing should be at least 12 hours before the candle is burned.
- Works well with HTP wicks.
Comparison to Golden Brands 464
- You’ll need to re-test your wicks and make sure they burn well in your jars (In our experience, you usually need a thicker wick for this wax for some jars but for others, no need to change). Make the candles like you normally do, and if the wick seems off, then wick up or down a size.
- This wax’s cold and hot throw are better. You will probably be able to add more FO % with 464. If it’s too weak, look at adding more FO%
- Pour temperatures may vary. If it frosts, then go for a different pour temperature.
