Church-lights: Also known as ‘Gravelights’, our Strahlux™ vegetable waxes are well suited to the production process, and to the long burn-time requirements of this candle type. The waxes can be blended with paraffin grades, or used alone when the customer requires a fully bio-based and/ or vegetable-based product.
T-lights: Mid-melting Strahlux™ waxes are suitable for t-light candles, often blended with refined paraffin wax to the customers’ own recipe. For pressing processes Strahlux™ 66-437 and 635-51 are particularly recommended, and for pouring processes all grades are suitable. Strahlux™ 66-437 is especially developed for white t-lights, having a very light color.
Container & scented: A wide range of Strahlux™ waxes can be used in container candles, depending on the requirements of the formulator. For scented candles, Strahlux™ 615 and 660-50M are especially recommended; low odor, light color, excellent shelf-life stability and good fragrance compatibility are key benefits.
Pressed free-standing: Higher-melting waxes with rapid crystallization are suitable for production of pressed and extruded free-standing candles, usually in a blend with refined paraffin in order to achieve the correct properties. Depending on the details of the process used, 20-50% vegetable wax can be typically incorporated into the wax blend.
