Slack wax

Slack wax is the feedstock for Paraffin Wax, which is a mixture of oil and wax. It is a byproduct derived in the process of producing Lube cut.

During paraffin wax production, Slack wax is feeded into the system as raw material which is finally processed into different grades of Paraffin Wax after performing the refining processes, deoiling and bleaching. The oil extracted during the deoiling process, is a byproduct called ‘Residue Wax’ (aka Foots Oil). Slack wax is naturally brown in color, ranging from 4% oil content to more than 35%.

Generally there are two types of Slack wax: Light Slack Wax and Heavy Slack Wax, which can result in different types of paraffin wax applicable in various industries. Usually Light Slack wax is processed for production of fully-refined paraffin wax which can be used in cosmetics and food industries. Yet, Heavy Slack Wax is usually processed into semi-refined paraffin wax that contains higher weight percentage of oil in it and is applicable in candles, rubbers, adhesive and hot melts, inks,… industries.
