    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

    4. Testing Wax 3 Star Review

      Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

      I purchase 464 soywax however I wasn't to impress with wax it had a lot of Frosting and the throw scent was very weak. I will be trying the 444 next, hopefully I have a better experience.

    5. Love this wax 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

      I have tried several types of soy wax and find that this brand leaves my candles with a smooth top and little to no frosting on my glass jars.

    6. *Update* 4 Star Review

      Posted by on 23rd Jan 2018

      After further testing and changing the method to heating to 185, adding fragrance, pouring at 145 into heated (150) containers - frosting was almost 0 and surface was another. The reason for missing the one star is that the tops were not perfectly smooth. they were a drastic improvement from my previous review however. I compared both c3 and 464 using dye and chips. Both waxes responded the same.

    7. Not terribly impressed 3 Star Review

      Posted by on 15th Jan 2018

      I used a 10 lbs bag to make a vaiety of different container candles. I used 10 different fo' s (we were also experimenting with scents) and made candles with and without dye chips. Most had frosting, even when poured at 110 to 115 degrees into warm containers. Only a few had smooth tops and most looked grainy. Wax was heated to 185 scent added then cooled to pouring temp. Everything had frosting to some degree. All in all the was gave very inconsistent results. I do like the flake form and color was exactly as expected. Scent throws were both pretty good. I'm going to try c3 next to compare results. Also 16 oz of wax plus 1 dye chip plus 1 oz fo is roughly 18 fluid oz.

    8. The best wax for making soy container candles 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 1st Oct 2017

      This is THE BEST soy wax I have ever come across so far. This wax gave me the required melt pool like no other did, and the hot throw was just amazing. No sink holes whatsoever, and I got quite smoother tops as well. I'm trying to find a cheaper way to import 1000 Lbs of this wax to India, but the shipment cost is crazy.

    9. Okay for Beginners 3 Star Review

      Posted by on 17th Sep 2017

      I wouldn't recommend using this wax. I had okay results with it, but in the end, all it did was disappoint. I've given it three stars because I'm not so sure if the low hot throw was caused by the wick choice or the choice of wax itself. I am using C-3 and am having much better results, but not just with the hot throw, but the wax itself. I never have to worry about sink holes when using C-3 like I did with 464 and the hot throw is amazing!! I have some 464 left over, but I doubt I will ever use it anymore. If I do, it would only be for my use.

    10. THE ONLY SOY WAX I USE 5 Star Review

      Posted by on 12th Mar 2017

      I really don't have anything to compare it with since this is the only wax I use. I chose this bran after researching my options for soy wax and this is the brand that was best suited for container candles. For me my problem has never been the was but what I put into the wax- colors and scents.
