Golden Wax 464 is a natural SOY WAX produced by global wax giant AAK under the Golden Brands name.
The Golden Wax 464 is made in the USA and incorporates a botanical additive to reduce frosting. The wax is Natural and Kosher. The lower melt point of this wax enables it to have improved jar adhesion and helps prevent wet spots. SUITABLE for container candles
Supplied in Pastilles.
Very soft soybean wax that retains fragrance very, very well and burns very, very clean.
Like all soy, waxes are prone to polymorphism on the resets, between burns, but the additive reduces very much this feature. We love its hot throw, stability, and ease of wicking.
This premium botanical wax is ideal for use in container candles and wax melts.
Most dyes work with Golden Wax 494 including powder, liquid, or our Bekro dyes. If you wish to make your wax darker, add a little black dye to the color you are using. To lighten use white dye.
Our testing has found this wax works well when heated to around 85°C with fragrance added at 70°C before being poured slowly into warmed glassware immediately after stirring. The wax will hold 10% + of most fragrances, although 7-8% is usually more than enough.
With a melting point of 45ºC-48ºC, it could be heated to 80ºC-85ºC. For us, this has resulted in smooth tops and perfect adhesion in clear glassware.
Pour temperature suggested: 57ºC. Please note however the ideal pouring temperature may vary depending on container size and room temperature therefore proper testing in small batches is always recommended and our testing cannot take the place of your own testing.
This wax benefits from a slow cool to help reduce the likelihood of polymorphism/frosting. This wax is prone to circular surface cracking, but this can usually be reduced/eliminated by good temperature control.
We would suggest a cure time of 10-14 days before burning.
Made in USA
As ever, a warm ambient temperature (20ºC), warm glassware, and the prevention of rapid temperature changes during cooling will reduce the likelihood of polymorphism/frosting.
This wax is prone to circular surface cracking, but this can usually be reduced/eliminated by good temperature control. It has a very beautiful, smooth finish.
Golden Wax 464 holds lots of fragrance, but even better, it throws fragrance very well. There are other soy waxes that hold as much, but we've found that if you put the 464 up against other waxes - all with the same amount of fragrance - you get the best fragrance throw with the 464
