    IGI 6006 Paraffin/Soy Pre-Blended Container Wax

    IGI 6006 is designed to be a single pour container wax when used under favorable conditions. This wax provides the combined benefits of paraffin and soy wax into a single blend. Approximate ratio is 70% paraffin and 30% soy.

    Melt Point: 133°

    Advantages of using IGI 6006:

    • Typically requires only a single pour for containers up to 28 oz (Large or tall containers may require a second pour)
    • Good adhesion to jars under optimal conditions (some containers may require heating prior to pouring the wax)
    • High fragrance load - 8% to 10% fragrance loads are possible
    • Smooth and creamy look
    • Achieve vibrant and dark colors
    • Excellent hot and cold scent throw
    • Pre-blended; no additives required

    Basic Guidelines:

    • Melt point: 133°
    • Heat wax to 185° - 195°
    • Add dye if desired and mix thoroughly
    • Add candle fragrance if desired and mix thoroughly
    • Pouring temperatures should typically be around 160° to 180°, 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
