Question about temps.


Recommended Posts

Thanks top I was putting the fo in at 120 to 125. The outside of the box says 135.

That was what the person I am doing candles with said to do. I have never done candles but she had, so I thought she knew what she was doing.

Everyone has their way of doing things. The concensus seems to be that the FOs bind better with the wax when added at higher temperatures. That makes sense. If you've ever tested FOs for gel, it's suprising how insoluble they can be. It's the heat at melting temperatures that helps them mix.

What you have is CB-135. It works pretty well. There's a range of temps you can pour it at, but 150 works for a wide range of containers. I usually get a perfect top at that pour temp.
