5203 Tealight Wax
Ever wondered why your tealights don't burn as well or smell as strong as professionaly produced tealights? Read on…
SASOLWAX 5203 is a hard paraffin wax with a low melt-point designed specifically for use in tea-light candles. This is a professional grade tea-light wax with a very tight congealing point and excellent scent throw.
5203 can also be used as an additive to increase the congealing point of softer waxes. 5203 does shrink, so pouring cool or remelting the surface is advisable.
Blending it with container waxes can also create excellent blends, both for tea-lights and in larger candles. SASOLWAX 5203 is supplied in pastille format.
Wick Selection: We would recommend the use of TD13, TD15 or TD17 tea-light wicks with this wax. The exact wick will depend on the fragrance used and can be ascertained through burn testing.
Fragrance: SASOLWAX 5203 has a very strong scent throw, so does not require as much oil as softer container blends. 5-7% is typical, although the wax may hold more in certain cases.
If you get mottling with this wax, try reducing the amount of fragrance, or adding the oil at a higher temperature, as mottling is typically fragrance that has not been held in the crystal structure.
