Use of Industrial Wax for Food Coatings & Pharmaceuticals:

  • Industrial waxes play a key role in food coatings and pharmaceutical applications due to their unique properties and regulatory compliance:

Food coatings:

  • Industrial waxes are used primarily for coating in the food industry, where they have several advantages:
  • waxes act as a barrier against moisture, oxygen and as a protector against impurities, which extends the shelf life of food.
  • They add gloss, shine and smoothness to sweets, fruits and vegetables, increasing their visual appeal.
  • Waxes can act as carriers for flavors, colors and nutrients, facilitating their controlled release and improving product consistency.

Pharmaceutical:

  • In pharmaceutical applications, industrial waxes are mainly used in coatings and formulations:
  • Waxes are used to coat tablets to improve their appearance, mask off-flavors and control the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
  • These helps encapsulate APIs, providing stability, controlled release and protection from environmental agents.
  • waxes are used in lotions, creams and conditioners for their emollient properties, which help protect the skin and improve product texture.

Regulatory Considerations:

  • Waxes used in food and pharmaceutical applications must meet US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations to ensure consumer safety.
  • Pharmaceutical waxes undergo strict quality control procedures that comply with pharmacopoeial standards, ensuring the purity and effectiveness of the formulations.
  • In summary, industrial waxes play a key role in product quality, shelf life and consumer safety in both food coatings and pharmaceutical applications, supported by their versatile properties and regulatory compliance.

Paraffin Wax Product Is In Higher Demand:

  • In the industrial wax market, paraffin wax is usually in higher demand than other waxes. This is mainly due to its versatility and wide use in various industries such as candles, packaging, coatings, adhesives and rubber processing. Paraffin wax is valued for its excellent water resistance, electrical insulating properties and ease of use in formulations. Its relatively low cost compared to specialty waxes also increases its popularity among manufacturers looking for cost-effective solutions without compromising performance. In addition, the development of paraffin wax formulations, including mixtures and additives, will expand its field of application and increase its attractiveness in the market.
