Paraffin from Fauth.

The refining of crude oils produces crude solid paraffins and crude paraffin oils. Both are mixtures of saturated, linear and branched hydrocarbons (alkanes and isoalkanes) and, after cleansing refining processing, can be used for a variety of applications as hard, medium hard, soft, high viscosity or low viscosity liquids due to their different compositions. The flammable, odourless and tasteless, water insoluble substances are inert or very inert to many chemicals. High-purity solid paraffins, as offered by Fauth, are used as base materials for cosmetic and medical products in candles, adhesives, paints and varnishes as well as corrosion protection and flood waxes in the automotive industry. Also, in the production of cheese for the preservation of the whole round and in various sweets, solid paraffin is regularly used as a release agent or coating.

Microcrystalline paraffins are hard and brittle, but are characterised in molten form by a low viscosity. They have the highest melting points and, in addition to standard qualities in corrosion protection, are used in preparative medical and biological analysis. The solid paraffins offered by Fauth are available as standard with melting points between 42 °C and 64 °C, special grades (which are counted among the paraffins) such as micro waxes up to 80 °C and polyethylene waxes up to 110 °C. As a food additive, microcrystalline waxes can be used under E 905, “coating agents”, for the preservation of fruit, vegetables and sweets (except chocolate).
