Product Description

Waxrex 1270 is a lower-range melting point semi-refined paraffin wax. It is derived from petroleum via a carefully controlled refining process to provide low colour and low oil content. Waxrex 1270 meets the requirements for many industrial wax applications and also meets requirements of RAL for candle manufacture. Waxrex 1270 is a translucent crystalline material in the solid state and is water-white in colour and low in viscosity when molten. It is composed mainly of normal, straight chain paraffin hydrocarbons that impart properties of water repellency and resistance to most acids and alkalis.

Waxrex 1270 contains an oxidation inhibitor to enhance the natural resistance to oxidation.

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



Waxrex 1270 is primarily used as a component in the manufacture of candles subject to applicable laws and regulations in each jurisdiction*.

* User must check compliance with applicable regulations
