Two Waxes, Melt Point Question

Recommended Posts

There's definitely not a formula. It's generally more complicated and less predictable than just averaging the two by percentage.

If they are exactly the same kind of wax, like two different soy waxes, I think it should work out that you'll get something in between the two, but it may not be exact. Some combinations of materials will create a eutectic, where the melt point is lower than either of the two ingredients. It can even happen with two different vegetable oils. When you combine two or more different materials, even just straight soy and paraffin, you probably can't predict the melt point.

That's as much as I know about it, but I think it's reasonably correct.
