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 adhesion and scent throw w/ some coaxing 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2015

    i live in a colder climate and have to keep my candles away from any drafts, etc… otherwise i get terrible cracks, pitting, and poor adhesion. what really helps me is keeping one room extra warm where i leave them to cure. this particular wax causes fewer problems than others when it comes to frosting, and adhesion--two of the problems i encountered w/ nearly every other soy wax.

  2. Really like this wax 5 Star Review

    I recently ordered a sample bag of gw464 and I was so happy to find a company that offers sample bags. Wax worked great. Thank you for the super fast shipping! My ord er got here in 2 days

  3. Great Wax 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2015

    I tried the nature wax but thought this one poured better provides a great throw hot and cold... In tin and glass. I warm my glass in the microwave 30 sec prior to pouring to ensure I get no wet spots. Smooth after cooling.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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
