Paraffin wax is a soft, colorless solid derived from petroleum, coal or shale oil, that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing twenty to forty carbon atoms. According to the degree of refining, paraffin can be divided into fully refined paraffin, semi-refined paraffin and crude paraffin. Crude paraffin wax has a high oil content and is mainly used to make matches, fiberboard, canvas and so on. Fully refined paraffin wax and semi refined paraffin wax are widely used as ingredients and packaging materials for food, oral medicine and certain commodities (such as wax paper, crayons, candles, carbon paper), coating materials for baking containers, preservation of fruits, insulation of electrical components, improvement of aging resistance and flexibility of rubber. They can also be used to oxidize to synthesize fatty acids.
