What Temp to Pour Soy Wax

Last Updated on 21.06.2022

If prepared outside of precise chilling conditions, soy products will tend to fat bloom. A good room temperature range is 70 to 80 °F, with a humidity level of 35 to 50 percent. The pour temperature would therefore be between 125 and 160 °F.

The temperature of the container should also be similar to that of the room. You will have wetting concerns if the container is below 70 degrees F. If the temperature rises, the fat bloom will increase. If the candle cools too quickly, the fat bloom will result, and if the candle cools too slowly, the fat bloom will result.

Pouring Soy Wax of Different Types

For best performance, all soy waxes appear to have comparable ranges of temperatures to heat to, add FO, and pour. Most are around 185 degrees for melting, 170 degrees for FO, and 140 degrees for pouring.

In a double-boiler setup, heat wax to 180°F – 185°F. Stir in the aroma and dye completely.

To improve side adhesion, preheat glass containers to 100°F – 125°F. (Optional)

Reduce the temperature to between 125°F and 145°F, then slowly pour the candles. You may need to tinker with pouring temperatures according to your climate.

Allow as much time as feasible for cooling. To speed up the chilling process, do not place it in a water bath or refrigerator.

Depending on the dye/fragrance mix, different wicks may be required. This wax has been shown to perform well with the CD and ECO wick lines.

With a double-boiler system, boil paraffin to 180°F – 185°F. Mix in the fragrance and dye carefully.

To enhance edge adherence, warm glassware jars to 100°F – 125°F. (Extra)

Lower the temperature somewhere between 125°F or 145°F, and pour the mixture into your wicks. You may have to play with pouring temps depending on your location.

Take quite as much period as possible to cool. To allow a faster cooling phase, do not lay in boiling water or the fridge.

Based on the dye/fragrance combination, various wicks might well be needed. This wax has been found to work well with the Cds and Ecological wick types.

Wax should be heated to 180°F – 185°F in a double-boiler setup. In a large mixing bowl, combine the fragrance and dye.

To provide for greater side adherence, preheat glass containers to 100°F – 125°F. (Optional)

Reduce the temperature to 90°F to 100°F before carefully pouring the candles. You could have to deal with torrential temps depending on your climate.

Allow time for cooling. To speed up the chilling process, don’t put it in the fridge or a water bath.

Depending on the dye/fragrance mix, different wicks could be required. This wax has been proven to be compatible with the CD and ECO wick lines.

In a double-boiler system, heat the wax to 180°F – 185°F. Stir in the aroma and the dye completely.

To improve side adhesion, preheat glass containers to 100°F – 125°F. (Optional)

Lower the temperature to about 140°F and 160°F, then slowly pour the candles.

Allow cooling slowly. To speed up the chilling process, don’t put it in a water bath or the refrigerator.

Depending on the dye/fragrance mix, different wicks could be required. This wax has been shown to perform well with the CD & ECO wick lines.

Conclusion

To summarize, everything is regulated and optimized in full-scale candle factories to produce excellent candles: containers are heated to the appropriate temperature, cooling takes place at the correct temperature for the exact amount of time, and wax mixing and pouring are done perfectly. When dealing with soy wax, home candle makers should aim to replicate the same level of precision as closely as feasible.

In other words, explore, test, measure, and document your findings until you have a flawless and consistent procedure.
