PRO Chemical & Dye :: Batik Supplies/Waxes

Waxes and Batik Supplies

Traditional Batik is an ancient form of resist dyeing. Hot wax penetrates the cloth preventing dye from spreading to those areas. Designs may involve many or only one color depending upon the number of times the hot wax is applied and the cloth is dipped into different colored dye baths.

Safety Tip: Overheating wax can cause harmful vapors and a potential fire hazard, Please use caution when melting.
 
 
Paraffin Wax: True petroleum wax traditionally used as a resist in batik dyeing. We offer it in granular form for easy handling. No blocks to break up. Melting point is 135 to 145
 
Microcrystalline Wax: A synthetic beeswax . Petroleum based, microcrystalline is used like bees wax to soften paraffin wax for better adhesion to the fabric and less crackle. Also called sticky wax. May be used alone for no crackle design. Microcrystalline wax comes in 1 lb blocks. Melting point is 160 to 170.
 
Batik Wax: For those who like the convenience and consistency of a mix in granular form, this is a popular blend of 75% paraffin and 25% microcrystalline wax. Melting point is 150 F.
 
Beeswax: Yellow colored, purified natural beeswax. We now sell all sizes in granular form.  Melting point is 130 F.
 
Soy Wax: Comes in flake form. Burns clean with no fumes. Is easy to remove; washes out in 140F water with Synthrapol. Is a non-petroleum renewable source that supports American Farmers.
