IGI Paraflex 4794 is an
excellent pre-blend paraffin votive wax. 4794 will require multiple pours to
achieve level a surface. In most applications allowing the candle to cool
completely after the first pour and doing a second pour will yield a level
candle surface. Because of the low melt point, this wax works exceptionally well
in containers as well. In a container this wax will completely pull away from
the glass, excellent for those that just can not stand to see "wet spots" on
their jars! Suitable for warmer climates. As with all candles, you will need to
protect against temperature fluctuations during transport and storage. 4794 will
hold up to a 9% fragrance load and has excellent hot and cold scent throw. IGI
4794 has a smooth, creamy and opaque appearance and will have a matte finish.
IGI Paraflex 4794 Melt
Point: 128°F Container Pre-Blend Votive Paraffin Wax. This wax will also work

Instructions for use:
Heat wax to 180-190*. Once
wax reaches desired temp, add your dye, blend well then add fragrance and again
blend well. This wax should be poured between 175-185* into heated
molds/containers to minimize skip lines. It is advisable to poke relief holes
around the wick of the candle once the wax has become solid but is still
After the first pour has
cooled, reheat your reserved wax from your first pour and refill the void (sink
hole) in the candle until you reach the level of the first pour. You will want
your second pour to be 10* hotter than your first pour to minimize lines from
the second pour. Repeat the repour process as necessary.
When using this wax for a
plastic Clamshell Melt, be sure to cool the wax to 150 to no more than 160* to
pour to avoid melting the packaging.
