Only 2% of crude oil is converted into lubricating oils, and a small percent of that processed into wax products. Slack Wax is derived from lubricating oils and are less refined high oil products. These high oils have relatively high oil content and processed further to produce more refined waxes. Most slack waxes do not meet FDA requirements for food packaging. Slack wax verifies from light to heavy grades based on its melting point. Melting point 50-52˚C is categorized in light grades and 53-55˚C is the heavy grade, and their oil content ranges from 5.0% to as much as 35%. Slack wax is the crude wax produced by chilling and solvent filter-pressing wax distillate. Actually Slack wax is a mixture of oil and wax.
It serves as feedstock and that is further refined and blended to create value-added petroleum wax products.
Slack waxes are widely used
in the production of wax emulsions, construction board, glass wool & textile treating, synthetic fire logs, matches, inks, weed bars, carbon paper, composite wood panels, chemicals and fertilizers, Paraffin wax production and candle production, in arena footing, in soil or turf protection, polishes, in fireplace products. Applied externally, these waxes can also function as good dust suppressants and/or controlled-release agents for various and also rust protective products and waterproofing agents in the manufacture of various industrial products.
Slack wax Light pack in steel drum (170 Kg drum), ISO tank or flexi tank. And Heavy Slack wax pack in summer in Plastic or steel drum and also can pack in Poly amide bags or Jumbo Bag with plastic Layer during cold seasons to prevent any deformation and leakage during delivery.
