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! This wax is 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: 128F Container Pre-Blend Votive Paraffin Wax. This wax will also work well for making wax melts & container candles. This wax can NOT be used to make free standing pillar candles.

Uses: IGI 4794 can be used to make Container Candles, Tea Light Candles and Wax Melts.
Fragrance Load:
Up to 9% is possible.
Dye: Liquid, Chip, Block, Flake & Powder Dye can all be used in this wax
Wick Suggestions: Zinc, RRD, HTP, CD Hemp, Performa, LX
Wax Type: IGI 4794 is a Blended Paraffin
Additive Suggestion: IGI 4794 has the optimal blend of additives already in the wax. You may want to however add UV Color Stabilizer to prevent fading and chemical color change.

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 pliable.

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 re-pour 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.

A MSDS for this product is available in a printable format here.

For testing purposes, we offer for sale, 10 pound slabs or bags of wax.

*We can only offer recommendations as to what wax will perhaps work best for you but we cannot guarantee any certain wax to work best in any application because of the many variables involved. The only way to determine the appropriate wax selection is by experimentation. Test burning will be necessary to determine the best wax for your candles!

I've tried switching to soy for my votives. Nothing compares to this wax. I've tried 6 different waxes for votives since 2001.

This is the ONLY wax worthy to use. I use it for my embeds too.

I have used this wax for many years... has consistently produced excellent formed votives & awesome scent retention! Also excellent in burning properties and burns very cleanly in containers. Color retention is excellent- an opaque wax. I rate as an A+

Author: Candles R Us
This wax burns clean and the scent throw is phenomenal in tea Lights paired with S330 wick.

I tested 34 fragrances (6 tea lights each scent) I only had one scent that didn't burn well.

Love it for tea lights!
