Description

KeraSoy Pillar Blend

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

KeraSoy Pillar Blend 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 but 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.

Moulds

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

Colour

Most dyes work with KeraSoy Pillar; 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 that the dye has dissolved completely before adding. When using powder dyes dissolved in fragrance, liquid dyes, or colour blocks 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 Pillar has been designed for fragrance at levels between 5 – 10%. 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 tunneling 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 Pillars 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 release from the moulds may be achieved by pouring at temperature of around 55 – 65°C, although this will be dependent upon the size and shape of the candle being produced. 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 enhanced release properties.

Double-Pour

KeraSoy Pillar is formulated to require only a single pour, however for some large Pillars; 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 Pillar).

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.

    Have made quite a few wax melts with this wax, and one candle.
    This wax has good and bad points. But I still prefer the the old EcoSoya PB. I melt to 83 celcius and add oil at this temperature.

    Good points is that it has a decent throw in wax melts. Haven’t tested candle burn yet. Liquid and block dye holds well. Shiny finish. Easy to clean up jugs and utensils after. Does not set on pouring, which means less wax is wasted. poured at 58 celcius.

    Bad points. Melts feel incredibly greasy, with visible oil grease. This is using fragrance oil at 10% (Tried 8% still greasy). Slight difficulty releasing from metal moulds. Silicone releases fine. Leaves residue in moulds. Takes a little longer to melt than EcoSoyaPB. When dusting moulds with glitter, glitter tends to rise to the top of the moulds on pouring. The other problem is, if attaching wax to wax, for example I pipe whipped wax on top of my melts. It doesn’t stick very well, some have actually fallen off. This could be related to the grease problem.

    Over all, it’s okay for pillar blend. No frosting. I will stick with it until an alternative is released. But I wouldn’t continue to use it once an alternative EcoSoya PB is available.

    Nice easy to use wax slightly oily must admit I do prefer the ecosoy pb.

    GOOD POINT – Holds scent very well. Holds colour very well.

    BAD POINT – 50% less oily than CB-135 WAX, Longer to set than EcoSoya PB (loosing more scent from hotter pours) slight frosting when touched.

    Overall i will come back here again anytime as price is “you get what you pay for”

    Having used it for a couple of weeks now I’ve found that if i stick my molds in the freezer for about 15 mins the wax is less greasy. I will continue to use it but looking forward to getting my normal wax back.
    None of my customers have complained so i’m happy.

    Melts a lot quicker however my first 2 batches of melts had a lot of frosting. Hopefully this won’t happen when I get it to the right temperature before pouring. Other than that I like it 🙂

    Very easy to work with & has a decent throw. My first few batches had a little bit of frosting but pouring at a low temperature (130) fixes that! Like others have said it does feel a little bit greasy compared to other waxes I’ve tried but not noticeably so. I will be sticking with this wax for my melts.

    Good scent throw for wax melts but I agree it’s a little greasy compared to ecosoy pb and takes a little longer to set. I placed last batch in the fridge and this helped mold release (feezer risks cracking). Overall it’s a satisfactory alternative to ecosoy but I still miss it. If I can get used to it I’ll keep ordering even if ecosoy becomes available as you are one of my best suppliers both in terms of value for money and service.

    This is a good Wax i agree with others it’s very soft and can be messy but it has an amazing cold and good hot throw in wax melts. I think fragrance has a big part in this I’m using premium fragrances but as soon as there cooled they smell incredible , I’ve been playing around with different mould ect . I can’t make my Brittle range as to soft and temps me to add paraffin But I won’t I’ve changed my ranges instead it’s an easy wax to use but all I can say is follow the what it says on the box as they do turn out perfect I have ordered a big box so it’s not that bad just takes some getting used to from cb135 which I loved . Frosting I pour as low as I can and get no frosting just play around that’s my advice ☺️It’s great value for money no problems with shipping it’s always nice and quick so thank you ☺️

    I love this wax,it is better to pour at a temp of about 58,and the melts come out really shiny,l think if you add a little less fragrance they tend not to be so greasy and still have a good scent throw.

    I have tried so many soy waxes following the discontinuation of ngi pillar blend. And none have come close. I got to a point where I no longer wanted to make melts as I was fed up of them constantly frosting unevenly and every make would be unusuable. Then I tried this one. Yes a little oiler but I have started adding 10% beeswax and this helps. Every batch of melts i make is as good as the one before. I have found enjoyment and satisfaction in making melts again.

    im fairly new to the world of candle making but i have trialed a few diferent waxes, and for the bulk of what i sell is melts! and i cant recommend this wax enough, it has a decent FO % and such a good hot and cold throw. i used to buy a few 800g bags at a time just while i was testing, but im now back to buy a few kg bag now that i am happy with this wax 🙂
