Description

In Detail

Our fully refined paraffin wax is an odourless and tasteless solid white block. Paraffin wax has a multitude of uses in the workshop, and for craft and hobbies.

It has a melting point of approximately 58ºC, molten wax is useful for sealing end grain on timber to prevent the wood from splitting. When melting the wax, always use a double boiler, never melt wax directly on the heat source.

Paraffin wax is an excellent lubricant. Often applied to drawer runners, or a quick wipe on the base of a plane, it is just as effective for zips, scissors, shears and many other tools. Blended with other waxes and solvents, paraffin is an ingredient in many recipes for homemade polishes. A mixture of paraffin wax, turpentine and linseed oil is good for waterproofing canvas and similar fabrics. Common hobby and craft uses include candle making and batik. Supplied as 500g block.
