Description :
The Strahlux™ range is specifically designed to meet the stringent and varied demands of candle makers, and offers an array of performance characteristics and functional benefits.

Strahlux™ candle waxes are suitable for all candle manufacturing methods, especially pouring processes where the melting point and crystallization behavior can be finely adjusted. Correct selection of the wax and wick combination guarantees the desired burning time and the complete consumption of the wax in the cup.

Strahlux™ waxes burn soot-free, and up to 50 percent longer compared to mineral parrafins under similar conditions.
Strahlux™ vegetable waxes are fully compliant with the requirements of the German RAL Quality Mark for Candles [RAL-GZ041, January 2013, Appendix 1].

Today, with volatile market conditions and uncertain availability of mineral parrafins, many customers are turning to waxes based on vegetable oils as a cost-effective, natural and sustainable alternative.
