Is a 145MP paraffin ok for hurricane candles?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if IGI 4625 would be okay for a typical cylindrical or ball hurricane with a tea light? Ideally, I would probably choose a 155MP wax but I will have the IGI 4625 on hand soon. Beeswax has a MP of 145 and I intend to use that for hurricanes too...

Can anyone give me some comments from experience with this MP type of wax for hurricanes?

I made one just to practice and it worked fine. The problem was when I set in it my entertainment center to get some pictures it started melting as I was editing! It was on a 36" wide, 10" tall and 18" deep shelf. It wasn't a tiny enclosed space and it melted. I don't recommend it!

I use IGI1260 - 160-165 MP and add 2% microcrystaline wax for extra hardness and shine.
