Kerasoy Container is a blend specifically developed for the production of container candles. Benefits of this wax are:
- Holds vibrant colour when using liquid, powder, chip dyes.
- Exhibits an excellent scent throw, both hot and cold.
- Uses only a small amount of liquid dye or chips.
- Can take a fragrance load of up to 10-12%*
- Does not require the use of additives.
- Arrives in pellet form for ease of use.
- Gives a smooth and creamy finish.
- Biodegrades and is vegan friendly.
- Requires only a single pour.
*The CLP we provide with our fragrance oils is for use up to 10%. A new CLP would be needed if the full 12% is used.
The wax should be melted to around 75°C when using dyes to ensure it fully dissolves into the wax. We recommended that moderate stirring is carried out. When not including dyes, melting the wax to 70°C will be sufficient.
Containers should be clean and free of contaminants. They should be at least at room temperature, although pre-heating the containers to approx. 45 - 50°C can be beneficial and will provide better adhesion.
Fragrance / Pouring
Fragrance should be added and mixed immediately prior to pouring. Greater adhesion to containers can be achieved by pouring at a temperature close to congealing point (approximately 45 - 55°C) If you experience difficulties with your pour temperature, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 5 - 10°C.
Minimise the time that the wax is at a high temperatures in order to reduce burning off the fragrance.
Natural waxes tend to require larger wick sizes than traditional paraffin waxes. Fragrance, colour and candle configuration have a great impact on the best wick choice. Too large of a wick may cause sooting, accelerated burn times and guttering (wax leaking through the side of the candle). Too small a wick will cause tunnelling and produce a smaller flame. Keep wicks trimmed to ¼ inch. If you experience poor flame quality or stability, try a different type of wick.
Cool undisturbed candles at room temperature (about 25°C) for 48 hours before test burning. Test burn the candle for burn pool diameter and “mushrooming”. Mushrooming is when carbon and/or other substances build up on the end of the wick interfering with combustion. Mushrooming can cause sooting and poor odours. Try different wicks until you have your desired burn pool diameter and a good clean flame.
