White paraffin wax from H Foster.

Paraffin Waxes

Paraffin wax was first created by Carl Reichenbach in Germany in 1830, and marked a major advancement in candlemaking technology, as it burned more cleanly and reliably than tallow candles and was cheaper to produce.

Paraffin wax is a soft, colourless solid, derived from petroleum, coal or shale oil, that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between 20 and 40 carbon atoms. It’s solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 37°C (99°F), and its boiling point is above 370°C (698°F). Common applications for paraffin wax include lubrication, electrical insulation, and candles; dyed paraffin wax can be made into crayons. It is distinct from kerosene and other petroleum products that are sometimes called paraffin.
