KERAGREEN PURE SOY C-EU

€7,00 EUR

Product Description

This is a pure soy wax manufactured in France.

Keragreen C-EU soy wax is only intended for the creation of candles cast in containers (glasses, boxes, etc.)

It's a pure soy wax, 100% natural, without OGM products, 100% Vegan, with no pesticides, and in conformity according to REACH norms.

Container Keragreen C-EU Soy Wax has features and benefits that make it the product of our choice for various applications:

  • Environmentally friendly: derived from renewable and biodegradable resources
  • Non-toxic: no substances harmful to health or the environment
  • Soy does not require herbicides or pesticides for its growth
  • Clean burning: reduced soot and smoke emissions
  • Easy to use: suitable for candles in containers and other creations
  • Made in the EU decreases very much the ecological footprint. For example, 464 is made in the USA. Have to be shipped to Europe so it leaves a big ecological footprint in their way.
  • Does not require solvents for cleaning; it cleans easily with hot water
  • Remains stable in fusion also over long periods, so it can be used by beginners
  • Cosmetics and pharmaceuticals: ingredient for the formulation of creams, lotions, and balms, thanks to its emollient and moisturizing properties
  • Agriculture: natural protection of wood against humidity and insects, due to its water-repellent properties
  • Glues and adhesives: added to improve flexibility and adhesion of products

Compared with C3 from Cargill, this wax presents very, very beautiful resets and doesn't need any stearine. We consider, in our opinion,  that's an improved version of C3.

This is also an excellent alternative to 464 from AAK(either made in the USA or Sweden ) with the same excellent results. 

This is also an excellent alternative to S41 from AAK(either made in Sweden ) with the same excellent results.

This wax is packaged in pellets, making it easy to work with, measure, and handle. To get the best finish out of this wax, we recommend pouring at 71ºC (±5º). However, you may need to do additional testing to find the best pour temp for your conditions. Keragreen C-EU has good adhesion to containers, which can be improved, especially during winter months by preheating jars.

For this soya wax, we recommend pre-warming jars before pouring the wax to obtain a better finish. Also, allow the wax to cool slowly.

TIP: after the wax has completely melted, we recommend that you reduce the heat so it cools to 50ºC-70°C. This will reduce cracking and discoloration.

Leave to cure for 2  weeks. A single filling is usually enough but shrinks slightly when solidified, good adhesion to the walls of the container can be achieved by warming containers before pouring and leaving them to solidify slowly

Recommendations 

Step One: Melting of Wax – The wax should be heated to a temperature of 71.1ºC to 93.3°C to melt the wax. Do not heat the wax above 93.3°C. If the wax is held at higher temperatures for long periods of time, it will discolor. Always use a thermometer when melting the wax and never leave your heated wax unattended. While the wax is melting, stir the wax regularly to reduce localized heating of the wax. This will help to reduce the burning of the wax while heating.

Step Two: Adding  Ingredients (other than Scent and Dye) – Other additives or ingredients may be added at any time to help improve the performance of the wax.

Step Three: Adding Candle Scent and Dye – The fragrances and dyes should be added to the wax after the wax is completely liquid. Make sure to stir the wax completely to ensure that the fragrances and dyes are completely mixed in.

Step Four: Preparing the Wax for Pouring - After the wax has been completely melted reduce the heat on the wax so that the wax cools to a temperature of  51ºC to 73.8°C. This will reduce cracking and discoloration of the wax after it has cooled. Pour Temperature should be matched to ambient room temperature recommendations in the table below for best results.

Step Five: Pouring Candles – Make sure that the container is at room or slightly warmer before pouring the wax into the container. The wax should be poured in the container while the wax is 51 to 82.2°C to reduce cracking and speed up the cure time of the wax. If the wax is to be left in melter overnight, the wax should be stored at a temperature of  54.4 to 62.8°C.

Ambient Room

Wax Pour
Temperature
15.6º to 21.1ºC
76.7ºC to 82.2º
21.1ºC to 26.7°C
71.1ºC to 76.7°C
26.7ºC to 32.2ºC
62.8ºC to 68.3ºC

Step Six: Curing of Candles – The candle should be allowed to cool and cure for at least 12 hours before the candle is burned. This will allow the crystals of the wax to completely form giving a nice finish to the candle.

Notes:

  • Candles over 89 mm in diameter may need to be double wicked to ensure a full melt pool.
  • Works well with liquid or powdered dyes.

Our testing has found this wax works well when heated to around 85°C with fragrance added at 70°C (if using dye, mix before fragrance at 75ºC) before being poured slowly into warmed glassware immediately after stirring. For us, this has resulted in smooth tops and perfect adhesion in clear glassware. 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. 

Wicking: We recommend the use of  CL Stabilo, TB, TCR, and ECO wicks.

Wood wicks also work well in C-EU wax.
