Slack Wax

Description of Slack Wax

Slack Wax is minimally refined high oil products. While we derive them from lubricating oils and often find applications “as they are”. With relatively high oil content, or further we process to produce more refine waxes. Most slack waxes do not meet FDA requirements for food packaging. Furthermore Slack waxes range from 105°F to 150°F in melting point, and their oil content ranges from 5.0% to as much as 35%. We use Slack waxes in the production of wax emulsions, construction board, matches, candles, rust protective products and moisture vapor barriers.

In addition one of the many products derived from refining is lubricating oil, from which a byproduct called slack wax is obtained. Also Slack wax is a mixture of oil and wax. It is the product, which serves as IGI’s feedstock and that we further refine and blend that to create value-added petroleum wax products.

Categories Of Slack Wax

Depending On The Lubricating Oil Fraction Feedstock HEAVY Or LIGHT Grade, By Product Which Is Slack Wax. We Categorize them In LIGHT AND HEAVY GRADE. In Each Category Depending On The Degree Of Refinement, they Can Have Various Oil Contents Range From 4 To 40 Percent

However Iran Slack Wax has 2 grades as Heavy & Light Grade.
