Paraffin Wax is an organic, plastic-like substance that is solid at ambient temperature and becomes liquid when melted.
In general terms, waxes are naturally or synthetically derived.
Crude oil is transported to refineries where it is refined into finished products by complex processes.
One of the many products derived from refining is lube/base oils.
The waxes are produced in the lube/oil refining process.(0 reviews)
Petroleum jelly (Vaseline, Soft Paraffin or Petrolatum) is a mixture of refined semi-solid hydrocarbons. It is translucent, devoid of taste and smell. Our Petroleum jelly is available in a Petroleum jelly, also called Petrolatum, translucent, yellowish to amber or white, the unctuous substance having almost no odor or taste, derived from petroleum and used principally in medicine and pharmacy as a protective dressing and as a substitute for fats in ointments and cosmetics. It is also used in many types of polishes and in lubricating greases, rust preventives, and modeling clay.
Petrolatum is obtained by dewaxing heavy lubricating-oil stocks. It has a melting point range from 38° to 54° C (100° to 130° F). Chemically, petrolatum is a mixture of hydrocarbons, chiefly of the paraffin series.(0 reviews)
Base oils are used to manufacture products including lubricating greases, motor oil, and metal processing fluids. Different products require different compositions and properties in the oil. One of the most important factors is the liquid’s viscosity at various temperatures. Whether or not a crude oil is suitable to be made into a base oil is determined by the concentration of base oil molecules as well as how easily these can be extracted.
Base oil is produced by means of refining crude oil. This means that the crude oil is heated in order that various distillates can be separated from one another. During the heating process, light and heavy hydrocarbons are separated – the light ones can be refined to make petrol and other fuels, while the heavier ones are suitable for bitumen and base oils.(0 reviews)
