Prowaxx™ 1292 SR

ExxonMobil specialties , Netherlands

Product Description

Prowaxx 1292 SR is a low melt point, hydrotreated paraffin wax that is compositionally engineered to a narrow melt point to ensure it works effectively as the paraffin component in plant-based candle formulations. The optimized oil content makes it well equipped at minimizing syneresis in container candle blends, providing good glass adhesion and allowing for higher fragrance loads. It is a translucent crystalline material in the solid state and water white with low viscosity when molten. It is derived from petroleum via a carefully controlled refining process that yields a consistent low and narrow melt point to ensure manufacturing versatility across all candle production types.


Hydrogenation ensures Prowaxx 1292 SR is produced with high purity and exceeds the requirements of RAL for the manufacture of indoor candles.


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