Microcrystalline Wax 165/175

Koster Keunen, Inc. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Microcrystalline Wax 165/175 is a white wax. Microcrystalline Waxes are produced during petroleum refinement using specified techniques such as distillation, de-oiling and crystallization. Microcrystalline Waxes are characterized by their fine crystalline structure in contrast to the larger crystalline structure of paraffin wax. They contain long, branched hydrocarbon chains which correlate to a higher molecular weight. Microcrystalline is more flexible, less oily, has higher tensile strength, more adhesion, and higher melt points than paraffin wax. These waxes have excellent gelling properties, and Koster Keunen carries an assortment of different melt points and penetrations to best fit formulators’ requirements.
