What is paraffin?

Paraffin is a by-product of crude oil refining. Later, it is cleaned using special techniques and is ready for use after adjusting the oil content, solidification point, color and smell. Types of paraffin supplied by Art Cube have a solidification point between 55°C and 68°C and an oil content between 0.8% and 5%.

Paraffin is extracted from oil or coal in the petrochemical industry. It is a saturated hydrocarbon compound in which all the carbon atoms in the molecule are connected to each other by simple bonds and paraffins or paraffin hydrocarbons are also called alkanes. In other words, the hallmark of these materials is the connection of carbon atoms with simple bonds, other bonds are saturated with hydrogen atoms.

In a simple way, paraffin can be described as a petroleum substance that is on the market in two forms, liquid or solid. Solid paraffin has a gel state and is sometimes known as paraffin wax. In fact, when we talk about paraffin wax, the main meaning is solid paraffin. Oral paraffin is used in the treatment of many diseases, including when taking pictures from inside the body.
