Golden Wax 494 (5715-94-02) Wax Melt & Tart Soy Wax

Quantity

NOTE:Please allow 2-3 business days for your order to be processed and dispatched.

There are also significant delays with deliveries via Royal Mail (7-10 working days to most areas and 10-15 working days to London) and Parcelforce (4-5 working days, longer at times) due to COVID-19. 

This all-natural soy wax from AAK was specifically developed and formulated for melts and tarts. Golden Wax 494, has excellent scent throw, exhibits vibrant colors, and releases easily from moulds. This wax uses a 100% soy and botanical oil formula that creates a smooth appearance. Due to the high amount of botanical additives, this wax blend is not designed for use as a candle wax and won’t burn with a wick.

Our testing has found this wax works well when heated to 80-85°C. Mix in fragrance; and dye if required, stir gently. Pour temperature 60-70°C. Please note however the ideal pouring temperature may vary depending on the shape and size of your mould; therefore proper testing in small batches is always recommended and our testing cannot take the place of your own testing. 

We would suggest a cure time of 10-14 days before burning.

This wax also makes an ideal base for use in scoopable wax when combined with pure rapeseed wax at a ratio of 75% 494 to 15% rapeseed.

Max Fragrance Load: 10% 
Melt Point: 49 - 52°C
Pour Temperature: 60 - 70°C (Testing has shown 60°C to be an optimum temperature for pouring, however this is personal preference)
Dye: Inpex SD Dye is most suitable (Mix at 1-2g dye per 100g wax, depending on the shade you wish to achieve)  

Please note: We do not recommend using essential oils in candles, even though some may perform reasonably well. The flashpoint, especially in citrus-type essential oils, is quite low and the direct flame of the wick in contact with the wax, a candle can easily catch fire. Essential oils do tend to work quite well in 'melts' as the heat source is not in direct contact with the wax. For candle making we recommend the use fragrance oils which have been specially designed for use in candles as their safety has been tested for the intended use. All essential oils due to their raw nature may discolour the wax. If essential oils are to be used in a candle application, please test in small quantities first and increase the ratio gradually to no more than 6%, being mindful of the high flammability of the raw material. As advised before, we do not recommend the use of essential oils in candles.
