Mineral paraffin – a residual product that is obtained by splitting crude oil into different fractions.Paraffin is the general trade name for
Without getting into major technical reports, crude oil is processed and petrol and diesel are extracted. What is left is a gatch that is further processed and from this paraffin-Vaseline-mineral engine oil and bitumen (tar) are extracted!
Today, paraffin can be refined so that it is completely free of odor and color.
Paraffin is characterized by the fact that it is a raw material that has an incredibly fairly linear melting curve .
This means that paraffin can be used in many controlled processes as a goods conveyor. In addition, it has a very wide range of uses – also many more than you think about in everyday life –
Manufacture of candles – storage of cheeses (cheese wax) – wax treatment of cardboard (milk cartons / deep-frozen packages) – sun protection against drying in car tires – car wax – leather wax – impregnation of wood – and many many others.
Quality division of paraffin is done by different technical data
Melting point as the most important and essential – <50 / 52-54 / 54-56 / 56-58 / 58- 60 / 60-62 / 62> and this is used in the daily mention to group the paraffins. The next significant factor is penetration (hardness) which is usually measured at 25 degrees Celsius in a water bath.
Odor and color and purity (free of heavy metals etc) are for the vast majority of types today – odorless and pure white. The EU has also set some norms and values in this area which must be complied with, among other things, by burning candles.
Today, European paraffin has a purity so that it can be approved – both for use in food (including chewing gum) and for contact with food (packaging).
The crude oil pumped up from the subsoil around the world is very different just as the content of paraffin is very different. In the North Sea’s crude oil there is about 4% paraffin, while in China crude oil is seen with a paraffin content of up to 35%. This also means that China is a significant participant in the market for paraffins and China can today deliver a quality that in many areas matches the European products.
When and if China wants to sell larger quantities, it always affects the prices all over the world, as they are usually cheaper than the existing supply.
