  • All paraffins melt between 55° and 57°C and are triple filtered to 0.5μm
  • Flake form has a greater surface-to-weight ratio than pellets, resulting in a faster melting time
  • Type 1 contains no polymer and offers rapid infiltration

  • Type 3 contains minimal polymer and offers fast infiltration

  • Type 6 is harder than Type 3 and allows for thinner sections

  • Type 9 has the highest polymer content available and yields extremely thin sections
