IGI 1313

IGI 1313 is a 143 melt point straight paraffin wax suitable for making molded candles both pillar and votives as well as for making both molded and hand dipped taper candles. IGI 1313 is a refined paraffin wax that is very hard. This wax makes both excellent burning and smelling candles and will provide the user with a variety of appearances. Because straight paraffin waxes are completely customizable they are an excellent choice for almost any candle maker!

This wax will work well for making smooth, creamy candles as well as rustic candles. IGI 1313 will work for making pillar candles, votive candles and is excellent for making both molded and hand dipped tapers.

Instructions for Use:
Heat wax to 190-200*. Once wax reaches desired temp, add your dye, blend well then add fragrance and again blend well. This wax should be poured between 185-195* into heated molds 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 pliable.

After the first pour has cooled some, 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. To make a rustic finished candle, do not heat the molds and pour the wax at 165*.

For making taper candles, the addition of steric acid at the rate of 3-5% and beeswax may be desired to enhance the properties of the candle and reduce dripping.

To make a smooth opaque creamy looking candle add Vybar 103 at the rate of 1/2 tsp per lb of wax.

Adding additives like Beeswax, Stearic Acid, Gloss Poly, Mineral Oil etc will all create varied results. Experimentation to determine what works best for you will be necessary when using straight paraffin waxes. There is far more versatility in a straight paraffin than a production blend.
