All natural soy wax for pillar and votive candles. PB soy wax is a good option for soy wax melts and soy wax tarts. EcoSoya PB exhibits very good scent throw, vibrant colors, and excellent mold release. Truly the perfect natural wax for smooth and creamy structural candles.
Pouring: It is typical for wax to solidify at the beginning of the pour during its first contact with the mold. PB should have a pour temperature high enough so that when the mold is full, the initial solidified wax has remelted. The temperature should not be so high that the liquid wax sits more than 30 minutes before starting to solidify.
Pour temperatures will vary according to mold type and size, fragrance and dye, and the effects preferred. PB does not normally produce static electricity or bubbles when poured, tapping of the molds is not necessary. A recommended starting temperature is 68.3°C.
There is a difference in cooling rates for different mold configurations. Cooling too quickly or too slowly can cause cracking and/or frosting. If difficulties are experienced with your pour temperatures, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 6°C.
PB Double-Pour: When using EcoSoya PB two pours are required with candles such as 7.6 cm - 10.2 cm diameter pillars. The first pour is done at 68.3°C by filling the mold to the top and allowing the candle to set up with a warm but congealed soft center. If the top of the mold (bottom of the candle) has “skinned” over and left a void inside, poke two holes into the candle near the wick.
The second pour is done at 60°C while the candle center is still warm but congealed.
Do not pour past the solidified wax of the first pour; in essence “fill” the first pour.
Making Votives with PB: The first pour is done at 68.3°C by filling the mold within 0.3 cm from the top. Allow the votive to cool until it is still warm with a congealed center that has no liquid. If the top of the candle has “skinned” over, poke two holes near the wick. Pour a second time at 60°C to completely fill the votive mold.
Pour temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes.
