Many people have heard of paraffin wax, but they don't know much about it. It is a hydrocarbon mixture extracted from petroleum or other mineral oil of asphalt particles. Its main component is solid alkanes. It is an ugly, tasteless, white or light yellow transparent solid. Paraffin wax is widely used in daily life. If you want to know more about it, please refer to the following specific introduction to its function and action.
Refined paraffin wax plays the most important role in various industrial production. Because the oil content in pressure is relatively high, it can be used to make matches or tarpaulins. In industrial production, an appropriate amount of polyolefin additives will be added to paraffin wax, which will increase the melting point for paraffin wax and its flexibility. The packaging paper and paperboard produced with such paraffin wax has moisture-proof and waterproof properties.
Paraffin wax can also be used in the production of all kinds of food packaging paper in life. Embedding the paper for packaging food into the paraffin wax can increase the waterproofing of the paper and obtain the wax paper used for packaging food. Packaging food and being free from moisture with such paper can also prevent the loss of food taste and increase the shelf life of food.
Paraffin wax is often used in textile processing, because the flexibility of cotton yarn can be enhanced after cotton yarn is added into paraffin wax. Textiles made of such cotton yarn will be particularly soft, smooth, elastic and look particularly high-grade. Such textiles have a high qualified rate and are not prone to quality problems.
Paraffin also has a strong heat storage function. Its stability is particularly good, and there is no supercooling phenomenon. It is widely used in the production of high-tech products such as aviation, aerospace, microelectronics and optoelectronics. In addition, it can also be used in the production and processing of chewing gum, bubble gum and drug Zhengjin oil. These products are essential additives in processing.
Through the above introduction to the function and action of paraffin wax, we can know that paraffin wax has a wide range of uses and has different function and action, but it can not be used as food for human. We must use it correctly in our daily life and avoid taking it blindly.
