Soy Wax Flakes
Trade Chem Soy Wax Flakes is a high quality soy wax suitable for container candles as well as other applications. They have been designed to deliver a stronger natural soy scent – we recommend testing first to ensure it is suitable for your individual requirements.
Soy Wax is made from pure 100% soy beans and carefully selected botanical oils. It has a soft creamy appearance, with a lovely smooth top. Trade Chem Soy Wax Flakes has excellent adhesion qualities for jars, tins and other containers. The containers don’t need to be pre-heated, but do need to be at a reasonable ambient room temperature. This soy wax has excellent scent throw with both fragrance oils and essential oils alike (Max Scent Load 8%).
This wax has a melt temperature of approx 50C (122F). It may be heated temporarily as high as 87.8C (190F) if powder dyes are being used, but temperatures in excess of this may cause the wax to discolour. Before adding any colour or fragrance, make sure that the melted wax has been thoroughly stirred to ensure an even heat distribution.
This wax works well with most powder, liquid and solid dyes, but to achieve a deep colour, about 30% extra dye will need to be used. When using powder dyes the wax needs to be raised to a temperature of approx 87.8C (190F) and stirred continuously until all the dye has been completely dissolved. It is often easier, when using to dissolve the powder dye in fragrance before adding to the wax.
