Specialty Wax Products

Microcrystalline Wax

Microcrystalline waxes are characterized by the fineness of its crystals in contrast to the larger crystal of paraffin wax. It consists of high molecular weight saturated aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is generally darker, more viscous, denser, tackier and more elastic than paraffin waxes, and has a higher molecular weight and melting point. ICS stocks a variety of Microcrystalline waxes designed for several industrial applications.

Beeswax

Beeswax is a natural sustainable wax produced by honey bees of the genus Apis. Chemically, beeswax consists mainly of esters of fatty acids and various long-chain alcohols. Beeswax has been used for many years within the investment casting process. All the beeswax supplied by ICS is rigorously tested to ensure it meets a very strict criteria to give our customers the upmost confidence in our products and supply chain. 

Stearic Acid

Stearic acid, (also called octadecanoic acid) is one of the most common long-chain fatty acids, found in combined form in natural animal and vegetable fats. Stearic acid is a mixture of approximately equal amounts of stearic and palmitic acids and small amounts of oleic acid. It is often employed within the investment casting sector across several applications.
