Parvan 1540

Product Description

Parvan 1540 is a high-range melting point product in the Parvan line of fully refined paraffin waxes. Parvan waxes meet the requirements for most industrial wax applications and meet applicable Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for food, health and cosmetic-related uses. Parvan 1540 is a translucent crystalline material in the solid state and a water white, medium viscosity, clear liquid when molten. It is derived from petroleum via a carefully controlled refining process and is primarily comprised of straight chain normal paraffin hydrocarbons, which impart excellent gloss and water repellent properties. Resistance to most acids and alkalis is good. The low oil content ensures that Parvan 1540 does not stain coated materials.

Parvan 1540 contains an FDA approved oxidation inhibitor to enhance the natural resistance to oxidation.

Parvan waxes are biodegradable under composting conditions

 

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

 

Parvan waxes are biodegradable according to ASTM D6400-12 using ASTM D5338-11
