Microcrystalline wax, a.k.a microwax 25kg
Both microcrystalline waxes and paraffin waxes are products of crude oil refining. Microcrystalline waxes have a different physical structure to paraffin waxes in that they have a very fine crystalline structure. Microwaxes also have a higher molecular weight than paraffin waxes.
Microcrystalline waxes are far more flexible and viscous (sticky) than paraffin waxes.
