Base Oils and Paraffin wax

Base Oils and Paraffin wax

Base oils (the raw material for lubricants) come from distillation or other complex processes carried out on certain types of crude oil, selected according to the characteristics required of the lubricants.

Paraffin wax is extracted from crude oil, solid at room temperature and is used to make a wide range of products, the most well known of which are candles. It is an inert, impermeable, shiny, and biodegradable product which burns without harmful or corrosive fumes being given off.
