Product Description

Golden Brands GW 464 Soy Wax Flakes

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.

Melt Point: 115 - 120°

Suggested Pouring Temperature: 130 - 145°

Advantages of using GW 464:

  • Typically requires only a single pour
  • Contains a soy based additive allowing for to reduce frosting and improved scent throw
  • High fragrance load - 8% to 10% fragrance loads are possible
  • Smooth and creamy look
  • Comes in flake form
  • No additives required

Basic Guidelines:

  • Melt point: 115° to 120°
  • Heat wax to around 185°
  • Add dye if desired and mix thoroughly
  • Add candle fragrance if desired and mix thoroughly
  • Pouring temperatures should typically be around 130° to 145°, though experimentation is recommended to determine optimal pouring temperature
  • Allow candles to cool as slow as possible to achieve good jar adhesion and create a smooth finish
  • Wait at least 24 hours before burning
  • Wick testing is recommended to achieve optimal burning characteristics and will vary with different combinations of wax, fragrance, dye, and container size

  1. Good wax for starters. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2015

    I am a beginner when it comes to candle making. I've found this wax very easy to work with. Excellent glass adhesion and fragrance retention. Very low pitting and shrinkage even when poured at higher temperatures.


  2. I like it, but.... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2015

    Right now I only use 100% Soy Wax for my candles. But I've noticed that after they cure and I store then away, they still end up having lots of frost. =( I've done more research on how to reduce frost, but I haven't had any luck. Has a nice hot and cold scent throw. My customers love the Georgia Peach candles.


  3. I love soy wax 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2015

    The only reason I did not give this wax 5 stars is because this is my first attempt at making soy candles.
    I melted the soy using the double boiler method. Because the wax was in flake form it was easy to use and add more as it melted.
    My candles look beautiful and the scnet held very well. I will be purchasing more.


  4. great wax! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2015

    I'm new to candle making and my first batch of soy candles I ever made didn't make a burn pool all the way to the edge of the jar and also did not have any hot throw. After doing some research I found this brand of soy wax and I am so pleased. It has an excellent burn pool and hot throw. The only con to this wax is potential sink holes and frosting but there are minor tricks you can do to prevent that. Also I know it's not a recommended wax for wax melts but it has an amazing throw. I love this wax and I'm glad I found this company to purchase my supplies from. Very friendly and helpful staff


  5. Best Wax I've Used! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015

    MUCH better than the IGI 4630 Paraffin wax. This soy wax always turns out with smooth tops, no wet spots, and amazing hot and cold scent throw. No more Paraffin for me, I'm stuck on this awesome soy wax!


  6. 464 is the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015

    This wax is great to work with and handle most scents well.


  7. easy to work with 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2014

    This is the first soy wax I ordered to try. So far so good. I don't really have anything to compare to but as of now I'm pleased with the ease of use. My candles have smooth tops and the cold fragrance throw is great and that's not even with the max % FO. Still in the testing phase for the hot throw ( I like a strong smelling candle) but the candle burns great with correct wick size. Also, easy clean up.


  8. GW464 ROCKS!!! 5 Star Review

  9. GW464 is by far the best soy wax 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2014

    I order this the other day and I was extremely pleased with the service I received. The flaming candle company is by far the best company there is, and great customer service they went above and beyond to get me my wax the next day. You all are awesome.
    As far as GW46 it is the best soy wax that they make is awesome cold and hot throw. Not alot of messy clean up. Very easy to clean everything in hot water and mild soap.


  10. GW464 is by far the best soy wax 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2014

    I have been using this wax for almost a year now and I would not go to any other wax. I was given the GW 444 by another company one time and I was not pleased with it.
    I would recommend this to anyone. Yes it is a soft wax but is a beautiful wax for candles and tarts.
