ECOSOYA PILLAR BLEND

€43,00 EUR

Description

EcoSoya PillarBlend is an all-natural soy wax for pillar and votive candles.

Incorporating new technology to improve the melt pool, this product is specifically designed for pillar candles.

EcoSoya PB is a great choice for creating pillar candles, votives, wax melts, and tarts. This all-natural, 100% soy wax exhibits a very good scent throw, achieves vibrant colors, and releases easily from molds. 

This wax exhibits great scent throw, vibrant colors, and excellent mold release. Truly the perfect natural wax for smooth and creamy structural candles.

This wax can take a fragrance load of up to 10%. We recommend heating this wax to around 70 degrees to melt and pouring it at 60 degrees. Add fragrance as close to the pouring temperature as possible for optimum results.

Try this wax if you had previously used EcoSoya Q230 from the old Quantum range.

EcoSoya waxes have been a favorite of candle makers for nearly 20 years. When NGI made the decision to close its business in 2019, it left a big gap in the soy wax market. In early 2020, UK-based manufacturer Kerax purchased the brand, and these popular soy waxes are once again available.

 Recommendations 

Melting Temperature: Under gentle agitation, melt the wax to 75°C.  Do not heat to above 90°C for prolonged periods of time.

Pour Temperature: Cool to 60°C then add fragrance oil and gently stir for 2 minutes to combine. Pour immediately after adding fragrance oil. 

If not using fragrance oil pour at 60°C.

We recommend the use of LX wicks , check here

How to take the vegetal mold of the silicon mold 

Taking vegetable wax molds out of silicone molds can be a delicate process to prevent breakage or damage. Here's a step-by-step guide with some tips and tricks to make it easier:

  1. Prepare Your Work Area:

    • Ensure your workspace is clean and dry.
    • Make sure the silicone mold and the vegetable wax are at room temperature.
  2. Use a Release Agent:

    • Apply a mold release agent to the inside of the silicone mold before pouring in the vegetable wax. This can be a silicone-based spray or a specialized mold-release product.
    • Allow the release agent to dry or set as per its instructions.
  3. Pour the Wax Carefully:

    • When pouring the melted vegetable wax into the silicone mold, do it slowly and steadily to minimize air bubbles and ensure it fills all the details of the mold.
  4. Cooling and Setting:

    • Allow the wax to cool and set completely. This may take several hours or overnight depending on the size and thickness of the wax mold.
  5. Gently Flex the Mold:

    • Before attempting to remove the wax from the mold, gently flex the silicone mold by pressing on the sides. This can help loosen the wax from the mold's surface.
  6. Start at the Edges:

    • Begin removing the wax mold from the silicone by carefully peeling back the edges. Use your fingers to create a gap between the wax and the mold.
  7. Avoid Force:

    • Do not force the wax out of the mold. If it feels stuck, gently flex the mold a bit more and try again.
  8. Use a Soft Tool:

    • If necessary, use a soft, non-abrasive tool like a silicone spatula or a plastic spoon to help ease the wax out of the mold. Be very gentle to avoid damaging the wax.
  9. Warm the Mold Slightly:

    • If the wax is particularly stubborn, you can warm the silicone mold slightly with a hair dryer or a heat gun on low heat. This can help loosen the wax without melting it.
  10. Patience is Key:

    • Take your time and work slowly. Rushing the process can lead to breakage.
  11. Inspect for Breaks:

    • Once you've successfully removed the wax mold, inspect it carefully for any cracks or breakage. If you find any, you might need to re-melt the wax and make a new mold.
  12. Clean and Store:

    • Clean the silicone mold after use, and store it properly to maintain its condition for future use.

Remember that practice makes perfect. It may take a few tries to get the hang of removing wax molds from silicone molds without breaking them. Additionally, the quality of your silicone mold and the type of wax you use can also influence the ease of removal. High-quality molds and proper techniques will typically yield better results.

 P.S - Silicone molds are known for their non-stick properties, and in many cases, they do not require a release agent. However, whether you need a release agent for silicone molds can depend on several factors:

  1. Type of Silicone Mold: Most silicone molds designed for crafting, baking, or soap-making are naturally non-stick, and you can often use them without a release agent.

  2. Complexity of the Mold: If you're using a silicone mold with intricate details, deep crevices, or undercuts, it may be a good idea to use a release agent to ensure easy removal of the molded item.

  3. Type of Material Being Molded: Some materials may have a tendency to stick to silicone more than others. For example, certain types of wax, resin, or clay may require a release agent, while others may not.

  4. Personal Preference: Some individuals prefer to use a release agent as an added precaution to ensure that their molded items come out easily and without any risk of damage.

  5. Reuse of the Mold: Using a release agent can also prolong the life of your silicone mold by preventing any build-up or residue from repeated use.

In many cases, you can start by trying to use your silicone mold without a release agent. If you find that the material sticks or has difficulty coming out of the mold, then consider using a suitable release agent. Common release agents include silicone mold release sprays, vegetable oil, or even a light dusting of cornstarch for certain applications.

Ultimately, the decision to use a release agent with your silicone mold should be based on your specific project and the materials you're working with. Experimentation may be necessary to determine the best approach for your particular situation.
