Scientists consider “wax” to be a generic term for classifying materials that have the following characteristics:

  • Solid at room temperature; liquid at higher temperatures
  • Primarily hydrocarbon in structure
  • Water repellent; insoluble in water
  • Smooth texture; buffable under slight pressure
  • Low toxicity; low reactivity
  • Low odor

Waxes are widely used throughout the world for a range of applications, including packaging, coatings, cosmetics, foods, adhesives, inks, castings, crayons, chewing gum, polishes and – of course – candles.
