GW 464 Soy Wax
GW 464 is a good quality soy wax produced by global wax giant AAK under the Golden Brands name.
With a melting point of 45-48C, it is a natural replacement for the discontinued CB-135, CB-Advanced and CB-Xcel blends. CL and Stabilo wicks tend to work best in this wax, with a 30cl candle requiring a CL17/CL18 or Stabilo 16/18. This will of course depend on fragrance.
The wax will hold 10%+ of most fragrances, although 7-8% is usually more than enough.
As ever, a warm ambient temperature (20C), warm glassware and the prevention of rapid temperature changes during cooling will reduce the likelihood of polymorphism/frosting.
This wax is prone to circular surface cracking, but this can usually be reduced/eliminated by good temperature control.
