Slack Wax

Slack Wax

Slack Wax is mixture of paraffin wax and oil originated from petroleum crude oil. Slack Wax oil content can range from 10% to 30%.

Slack Wax is produced during the production of Group I lube base oil. During production of Group I lube base oil, the feedstock firstly has to go through solvent extraction process to remove aromatics and the resultant product is called raffinate. The raffinate is then diluted with solvent like methyl-ethyl ketone (MEK) to improve low-temperature filterability.

The diluted oil is then chilled to -10°C to -20°C. Wax crystals will form, precipitate and removed by filtration, the removed wax becomes Slack Wax.

Applications

The traditional usage of Slack Wax is in the production of semi and fully refined paraffin wax and other major usage are for particle board and medium density fiberboard, cable filing compound, matches, candles, rust protective products and moisture vapor barriers.

Packing

Slack wax is packed in new or second-hand drums, flexi bags
