Paraffin wax

Paraffin wax or Petroleum wax is a soft colorless solid derived from petroleum, coal or shale oil that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms. It is solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 37C and its boiling point is above 370C. Common use for paraffin wax include lubrication, electrical insulation, and candles and dyed paraffin wax can be made into crayons.

General Properties and Specifications of Paraffin wax or Petroleum wax:
Appearance: White solid.
Odor: Odorless.
Melting point: Varies. It is 58C to 60C for Fully refined grade.
Oil Content: Varies. It is 0.5% for Fully refined grade.
Visual impurities: Nil.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Use reagents for ultraviolet absorption spectrophotometry. Dissolve 0.50 g in 25 mL of heptane and place in a 125 mL separating funnel with unlubricated ground-glass parts (stopper, stopcock). Add 5.0 mL of dimethyl sulfoxide. Shake vigorously for 1 min and allow to stand until 2 clear layers are formed. Transfer the lower layer to a 2nd separating funnel, add 2 mL of heptane and shake the mixture vigorously. Allow to stand until 2 clear layers are formed. Separate the lower layer and measure its absorbance between 265 nm and 420 nm using as the compensation liquid the clear lower layer obtained by vigorously shaking 5.0 mL of dimethyl sulfoxide with 25 mL of heptane for 1 min. Prepare a 7.0 mg/L reference solution of naphthalene in dimethyl sulfoxide and measure the absorbance of this solution at the absorption maximum at 278 nm using dimethyl sulfoxide as the compensation liquid. At wavelengths from 265 nm to 420 nm, the absorbance of the test solution is not greater than one-third that of the reference solution at 278 nm.

CAS: Hydrotreated Microcrystalline Wax [CAS 64742-60-5]
CAS: Microcrystalline Wax [CAS 63231-60-7]

Petroleum Wax occurs as a translucent wax that ranges in color from amber to almost white. It is a refined mixture of solid hydrocarbons, paraffinic in nature, obtained from petroleum. It may be prepared as ‘‘refined paraffin wax’’ or as ‘‘refined microcrystalline wax.’’ The refined paraffin wax is usually obtained from a lower-molecular-weight fraction of petroleum and has lower viscosities when molten than the refined microcrystalline wax. The refined microcrystalline wax is usually higher in molecular weight, in flash point, and in melting point than the refined paraffin wax. These waxes are graded and sold according to color and to melting point, which ranges from about 48C to 102C. They exhibit low solubility in organic solvents, but they are most soluble in aromatic hydrocarbons and least soluble in ketones, in esters, and in alcohols.
Function: Masticatory substance in chewing gum base; protective coating; defoaming agent; microcapsules for spices and flavoring agents.

Identification: The infrared absorption spectrum of a melted sample on a potassium bromide plate exhibits maxima only at the same wavelengths as those of a typical spectrum as shown in the section on Infrared Spectra, using the same test conditions as specified therein.
Lead: Not more than 1 mg/kg.
Ultraviolet Absorbance: (polynuclear hydrocarbons) 280 to 289 nm: Not more than 0.15; 290 to 299 nm: Not more than 0.12; 300 to 359 nm: Not more than 0.08; 360 to 400 nm: Not more than 0.02.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

Fire: It is not considered to be a fire hazard. It is flammable at higher temperatures. This material may burn but will not ignite readily.
Explosion: Reactions with incompatibles may pose an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Use means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes. Fire-extinguishing work is done from the windward and the suitable fire-extinguishing method according to the surrounding situation is used. Uninvolved persons should evacuate to a safe place.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage: Contain spilled material. Cover with an inert, non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite). Vacuum or sweep-up and remove to an approved disposal container.

7. Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Do not leave the material container open. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like oxidizing materials.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits:
ACGIH TLV: TWA 2 mg/m3
OSHA PEL: (Vacated) TWA 2 mg/m3
Ventilation System:
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a half face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn for up to ten times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. A full-face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn up to 50 times the exposure limit, or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency, or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerin, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. If heat is involved, an ammonia/methylamine, dust/mist cartridge may be necessary.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection:: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
