New EcoSoya Wax Q220
Stable and easy to use, EcoSoya Q220 works as a paraffin replacement and is a suitable replacement for CB Advanced Wax due to its higher melting point and aesthetics. The high melting point allows finished candles to withstand summer heat and high temperatures during shipping and transit. The higher melting point also makes the EcoSoya WaxQ220 an excellent wax for Container Candles and Clamshell Melts. EcoSoya Q220 can be cooled during manufacturing with a reduced chance of improper curing, leading to a more efficient process that yields less waste. This wax burns best with wicks designed for viscous waxes, such as beeswax and plant-based waxes, while also supporting the use of large wicks for faster fragrance throw without the usual problems related to sooting. EcoSoya Q220 offers exceptional consistency and performance every time.
Applications: Container Candles, Molded Candles, Clamshell Melts. It might be difficult to use this wax in metal Votive and Tart molds as they might be slightly soft to the touch and prone to scratches. This wax is not recommended for use in manufacturing Pillar candles.

Caution: Do not use copper or brass tools or containers when working with soy wax, as the copper and brass will discolor the wax.
