Paraffins Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is distinct from kerosene, which is another petroleum-based product often referred to as paraffin. Paraffin wax is a petroleum-based product that is popular because it has a wide range of physical properties, such as low reactivity, which can be modified by various refining processes. The product applications are wide and diverse, ranging from water repellant in composite building materials and manufacturing-grade lubricant to consumer goods, such as cosmetics and chewing gum. This report excludes the procurement of all other waxes and oils.
