Description

Golden Wax 464 (or S41 as the new name in Europe) is a natural SOY WAX produced by global wax giant AAK under the Golden Brands name containing a soy-based additive to reduce frosting and increase fragrance load. 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.

Product Specifications

Golden Wax 464 does not need to be blended with paraffin or other non-plant-based waxes. In addition, Golden Wax provides significant bloom/frost reduction. This premium botanical wax is ideal for use in container candles and wax melts.

  • Reduced set-up time
  • Great mold release
  • Allow for vibrant colors
  • Create a fragrance throw comparable to paraffin
  • Compatible with standard candle making equipment
  • Easily modified and combined with other waxes
  • Versatile and adaptable, for easily customizable blends

Color

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 colour you are using. To lighten use white dye.

Fragrances

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.

Melting

With a melting point of 45ºC-48ºC it could be heated till 80ºC-85ºC. For us, this has resulted in smooth tops and perfect adhesion in clear glassware.

Pouring

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. 

Cooling

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.

Cure time

We would suggest a cure time of 10-14 days before burning.

 Made in Sweden

Recommendations 

CL and Stabilo wicks tend to work best in this wax, with a 30cl candle requiring a CL17/CL18 or Stabilo 16/18. This will depend on the % of  fragrance used and with or without pigments/dyes

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 finishing.

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.
