Description

KeraSoy Container Wax is a blend specifically developed for the production of container candles. It is suitable for further blending with fragrances and oil soluble dyestuffs. KeraSoy Container blend is biodegradable and vegan friendly. No animal products are used and no animal testing has been carried out in its manufacture.

KeraSoy Container Wax does not require additives, other than fragrance and colour required by the Candle maker. Old or partial candles may be remelted and the wax reused although it is advisable not to heat the wax above 85°C or heating for extended lengths of time. Waxes should be stored in a cool, dry location away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture.

Containers

Containers should be clean and free of contaminants. Containers should be at least at room temperature, although pre-heating the containers to approx. 45 – 50°C can be beneficial.

Colour

Most dyes work with KeraSoy Container; powder, liquid, chips, blocks, etc. When using powder dyes, heat the wax to approx. 75°C, add the dye and mix until dissolved. Powder dyes may also be dissolved in fragrance and then added to the melted wax, be sure the dye has dissolved completely before adding. When using powder dyes dissolved in fragrance, liquid dyes, colour blocks, chips or no dye heat the wax to 70°C. If you wish to make your candle darker or “richer”, add a little black dye to the colour you are using.

Fragrance

KeraSoy Container may be used with fragrance at levels up to 10-12%, however fragrance which is specifically developed for use with natural waxes is highly recommended. Burn pool size and depth greatly affect fragrance throw so correct wicking is paramount. Some fragrances may react poorly with the wax causing bleeding, objectionable surface finishes or poor flame quality. This has been found to be exaggerated when using fragrances specifically designed for use in Paraffin wax candles.

Wicking

Natural waxes tend to require larger wick sizes than traditional paraffin waxes. Fragrance, colour and candle configuration have a great impact on the best wick choice. Too large of a wick may cause sooting, accelerated burn times and guttering (wax leaking through the side of the candle). Too small a wick will cause tunnelling and produce a smaller flame. Keep wicks trimmed to ¼ inch. If you experience poor flame quality or stability, try a different type of wick. Test burning should be done after the candle has had a chance to sit for 48 hours after pouring.

Melting

Temporary high temperatures (up to 90°C) have no adverse effect as long as the wax is cooled back down quickly. Higher temperatures may cause the wax to discolour. Allow the wax to cool to your desired pour temperature, add the fragrance and mix well. Be sure to stir/mix the wax while melting. Avoid using containers containing copper and zinc as this may accelerate discolouration. Stainless Steel is the material of choice although mild steel is acceptable. Digital temperature probes are readily available and are a safer choice than the traditional Mercury in glass type.

Pouring

Pour temperatures may vary according to mould type & size, fragrance & dye used and the effects the candle maker wishes to achieve. Greater adhesion to containers can be achieved by pouring at temperature close to congealing point (approximately 45 – 55°C). Fragrance should be added and mixed immediately prior to pouring where practical. If you experience difficulties with your pour temperature, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 5 – 10°C. Consider pouring into pre heated moulds for better adhesion to glass containers.

Double-Pour

KeraSoy Container is formulated to require only a single pour in most containers however, for some large containers; a top-up is required to achieve the best candle surface. A small amount of wax at a slightly warmer temperature than the candle was poured at can be used to top-up the candle before the candle is fully cool (pouring the top-up once the candle is completely cool may result in a reduction of adhesion to the container).

Candle Cooling

Cool undisturbed candles at room temperature (about 25°C). Candles should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning.

Test Burn:

Check wicking. Test burn the candle for burn pool diameter and “mushrooming” after it has cooled for 48 hours. Mushrooming is when carbon and/or other substances build up on the end of the wick interfering with combustion. Mushrooming can cause sooting and poor odours. Try different wicks until you have your desired burn pool diameter and a good clean flame

    Really impressed with this wax. Melts well and gives a smooth finish.

    First time trying this wax, it comes in pellet form, i’m usually used to Soy flakes and use CB135 – i’m a convert! The pellets are so much easier when weighing out and gives this silky/glossy finish on the top of candles, which makes my products look even more fab!

    Great value for money too for the 25kg package!

    usually use CB135 wax first time of trying thought this could not possibly be as good.How wrong could you be .Easy to use pellets better to weigh out excellent finish to candles, holds scent throw and burns well.Also good value for the 25 kg box.

    This wax is the worst soy wax I’ve used to date!! The overall quality when poured is awful giving a poor surface quality!! I have attempted to pour at different temps and method but still with terrible results. The CB135 wax that I normally use is by far better quality and result, and with the CB135 you can load it with far more fragrance than this wax. Avoid !!!

    I just finished a batch with this wax. Tried CB 135 before. This one is very good also and I will buy it again. Good looking surface, good scent throw.

    I’m sorry but I do not like this wax. I’ve adjusted the temps at both ends and tried various things, re the info available. I took a chance and bought 25kg in place of my usual CB135 and now I’m stuck with it….I’m now topping all my candles with my left over CB135. This is a timely and annoying affair but it gives me the the nice finish I’m used to. I would say if your happy with your CB135 stick with it. I do like the pellet structure but that’s about it.

    I really DO NOT LIKE this wax, I use to use EcoSoy CB Xcel which was always guaranteed beautiful smooth finish, mixed with scents super well and now I can’t get it anywhere !!!! I have just completed batch of 40 candles that do not have the quality I require. Surface is all crusty and can see wet spots and a bit of frosting… avoid this wax. Really Really disappointed! I hope to find a good alternative!

    It’s my first time making candles so I have no comparison. But I found it easy to use and not too messy which I was not anticipating. It did clump a bit first time around, but on my second batch I added gradually and it melted much better. I would buy again.
