Micro wax 195 candle additive (Microcrystalline wax) is a translucent candle additive that will harden the candle, raise the melt point, and reduce or eliminate mottling. It is much harder than micro wax 175, and is recommended for pillar candles and taper candles. Micro wax 195 candle additive comes in an easy to use and measure bead form.
Microcrystalline Wax – Its characteristics resemble those of the natural waxes closely, including its high melting point, high viscosity, flexibility at low temperatures, and high cohesion and adhesion. Micro waxes can be either soft and ductile, or, firm and brittle. Melting points range from 145 – 200+ degrees Fahrenheit. Color values include Black, Brown, Amber, Yellow, Ivory, and White. Micro waxes can be used as substitutes for natural waxes. Other applications include hot melt adhesives, chewing gum base, candle additives, laminating paper and foils, and polishes.
Recommended usage is 1-2 teaspoons per pound of wax.
Melt point is approximately 195° F (91 C).
