Beeswax White Pure BP FCC Food Grade Suppliers
Beeswax (Cera alba) is a natural wax produced by honey bees of the genus Apis. The wax is formed into "scales" by eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments 4 through 7 of worker bees, who discard it in or at the hive. The hive workers collect and use it to form cells for honey-storage and larval and pupal protection within the beehive. Chemically, beeswax consists mainly of esters of fatty acids and various long-chain alcohols.
Beeswax has applications in human food and flavoring, for example as a glazing agent. It is edible, in the sense of having similar negligible toxicity to plant waxes, and is approved for food use in the European Union under the E number E901. However, the wax monoesters in beeswax are poorly hydrolysed in the guts of humans and other mammals, so have insignificant nutritional value.
White Beeswax BP Grade
Action and use: Excipient.
Wax obtained by bleaching yellow beeswax.
Appearance: White or yellowish-white pieces or plates, translucent when thin, with a fine-grained, matt and non-crystalline fracture; when warmed in the hand they become soft and malleable. It has an odour similar to that of yellow beeswax, though fainter and never rancid. It is tasteless and does not stick to the teeth.
Solubility: Practically insoluble in water, partially soluble in hot ethanol (90 per cent V/V) and completely soluble in fatty and essential oils.
Relative density: About 0.960.
Drop point: 61C to 66C.
Melt the beeswax by heating on a water-bath, pour onto a glass plate and allow to cool to a semi-solid mass. Fill the metal cup by inserting the wider end into the beeswax and repeating the procedure until beeswax extrudes from the narrow opening. Remove the excess with a spatula and insert the thermometer immediately. Remove the beeswax displaced. Allow to stand at room temperature for at least 12 h before determining the drop point.
Acid value: 17.0 to 24.0.
To 2.00 g (m g), in a 250 ml conical flask fitted with a reflux condenser, add 40 ml of xylene and a few glass beads. Heat until the substance is dissolved. Add 20 ml of ethanol (96 percent) and 0.5 ml of phenolphthalein solution and titrate the hot solution with 0.5 M alcoholic potassium hydroxide until a red colour persists for at least 10 s (n1 ml). Carry out a blank test (n2 ml).
Ester value: 70 to 80.
Saponification value: 87 to 104.
To 2.00 g (m g), in a 250 ml conical flask fitted with a reflux condenser, add 30 ml of a mixture of equal volumes of ethanol (96 per cent) and xylene and a few glass beads. Heat until the substance is dissolved. Add 25.0 ml of 0.5 M alcoholic potassium hydroxide and heat under a reflux condenser for 3 h. Titrate the hot solution immediately with 0.5 M hydrochloric acid , using 1 ml of phenolphthalein solution as indicator (n1 ml). Reheat the solution to boiling several times during the course of the titration. Carry out a blank test (n2 ml).
Ceresin, paraffins and certain other waxes: To 3.0 g, in a 100 ml round-bottomed flask, add 30 ml of a 40 g/l solution of potassium hydroxide in aldehyde-free alcohol and boil gently under a reflux condenser for 2 h. Remove the condenser and immediately insert a thermometer. Place the flask in a water-bath at 80C and allow to cool, swirling the solution continuously. No precipitate is formed until 65C, although the solution may be slightly opalescent. Beginning at 65C, the solution may become cloudy and precipitates may be formed. At 59C, the solution is cloudy.
Glycerol and other polyols: Maximum 0.5 per cent m/m, calculated as glycerol.
To 0.20 g add 10 ml of alcoholic potassium hydroxide solution and heat on a water-bath under a reflux condenser for 30 min. Add 50 ml of dilute sulphuric acid, cool and filter. Rinse the flask and the filter with dilute sulphuric acid. Combine the filtrate and washings and dilute to 100.0 ml with dilute sulphuric acid. Place 1.0 ml of the solution in a test-tube, add 0.5 ml of a 10.7 g/l solution of sodium periodate, mix and allow to stand for 5 min. Add 1.0 ml of decolorised fuchsin solution and mix. Any precipitate disappears. Place the tube in a beaker containing water at 40C. During cooling observe for 10-15 min. Any violet-blue colour in the solution is not more intense than that in a standard prepared at the same time and in the same manner using 1.0 ml of a 10 mg/l solution of glycerol R in dilute sulphuric acid.
Beeswax, White FCC Food Grade
Beeswax, White, occurs as a yellow-white solid, somewhat translucent in thin layers, with a faint, characteristic odor, free from rancidity. It is the bleached, purified wax from the honeycomb of the bee Apis mellifera L. (Fam. Apidae), and it consists primarily of myricyl palmitate (myricin), cerotic acid and ester, and some high-carbon paraffins. Its specific gravity is about 0.95. Beeswax, White, is insoluble in water and sparingly soluble in cold alcohol. Boiling alcohol dissolves cerotic acid and part of the myricin. It is completely soluble in chloroform, in ether, and in fixed and volatile oils. It is partly soluble in cold carbon disulfide and is completely soluble in it at temperatures of 30C or above.
Function: Surface-finishing (glazing) agent; release agent; raw material for flavoring agent.
Acid Value: Between 17 and 24.
Carnauba Wax: Passes test.
Ester Value: Between 72 and 79.
Fats, Japan Wax, Rosin, and Soap: Passes test.
Lead: Not more than 5 mg/kg.
Melting Range: Between 62° and 65°.

Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like oxidizing materials.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: None established
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.
