Product Description

Prowaxx 1254 SR is a low melt point, semi-refined paraffin wax product designed to work as the paraffin component in plant-based candle formulations. The narrow range melt point and oil content specifications enables consistent formulation of the candle system. The optimal oil content provides excellent glass adhesion in container candle wax formulations. Its unique composition makes it well equipped at minimizing syneresis in container candle blends. Prowaxx 1254 SR performs well in both pouring and slurry candle manufacturing.


Prowaxx 1254 SR is a translucent crystalline material in the solid state and is water-white, low viscosity, clear liquid when molten. It is produced via a carefully controlled manufacturing process to ensure consistent quality.


Prowaxx 1254 SR meets the requirements for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for indirect food contact substances and contains an oxidation inhibitor to improve stability.


ExxonMobil waxes are produced and controlled according to the ExxonMobil Product Quality Management System, EN ISO 9000 or equivalent standard.
