General description

Paraffin Wax is a solidified microcrystal that is produced by continuous boiling of residual oils that include iso-alkanes. It is characterized in terms of soft and hard paraffins with a melting point in the range of 45-60°C.

Application

Paraffin wax can be used as a phase changing material (PCM) that can be loaded with exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnP) for the development of energy saving building materials. It may be used as a combustion material for hybrid rocket motor applications. Paraffin wax/graphite nanoparticles based nanocomposite may be used in the fabrication of hybrid storage material for solar still to desalinate seawater.
