Golden Brands GW 464 Soy Wax Flakes - 50 lb. Case
Golden Brands GW 464 is a natural soy wax containing a soy based additive to reduce frosting and increase fragrance load. GW 464 is designed for use in container candles and blends well with other waxes, such as paraffin, slack, and microcrystalline wax. It is not recommended to blend GW 464 with beeswax. The lower melt point of this wax enables it to have improved jar adhesion and helps prevent wet spots. A heat gun may be necessary to smooth out tops on finished candles.

Not what I'm used to

SO I purchased this because as you may already know they discontinued the EcoSoya waxes to formulate a new one... It's not as easy and forgiving. You need to follow the directions exactly to get a good looking finished candle. After the burn test the scent throw ends up being very good. This wax is growing on me.

I'm newer to candle making and 464 was the first wax I ever tried and I had great results with it! I get a great hot and cold throw and smooth tops for the most part! Shipping is always fast with Flaming Candle and I love getting a free fragrance with my orders! Also great customer service!!! Excellent company! I recently tried and tested a different soy wax and went right back to the 464!

I have purchased this brand of GW464 wax in slabs for 3 years from another company and never had an issue. Now that I have purchased one 20lb batch of the flakes from here my wax cubes, while they have excellent scent throw and can hold a bunch of it, within 12 hours some of my wax cubes have started to frost. I don't understand why it is doing this especially since it has the additive to reduce the effect. I have used the flakes one other time and had no issue. I don't know why this batch has been different. I love the convenience of the flakes. I am a stickler over that frosting effect. I've had it happen over several days to a week after pouring but never withing 12 hours. It's disappointing. But other than that the scent throw is good, everything poured easy with a nice creamy color and it was easy to manage when scooping it out to melt it down.
In consistent performance

I have a love/hate relationship with this wax. I'll buy one batch and have beautiful candles; single pour no cratering. Then I'll buy another batch and have issues. This last batch was the final straw for me. It has a major issue with frosting. Every single candle I pour frosts. The only solution I've found is to heat it to 185 and let it completely cool then reheat again then go through my normal process. This is a huge wast of time. My assumption is there was an issue during manufacturing. I'm tired of the inconsistency and won't be purchasing Golden Wax again. I'm moving to Nature Wax.
Best Wax Ever
