Mineral wax

Description

A series of high molecular weight hydrocarbons. Mineral waxes are relatively pure materials which have little to none of the alcohols or esters found in plant waxes and Beeswax. Mineral waxes are generally obtained from the fractional distillation of Petroleum, shale oil, Lignite, or Coal. Examples of purified mineral waxes are: paraffin, ceresin, microcrystalline, and Petrolatum. These white, translucent materials are stable and unreactive.
