Alpha Wax offers a complete range of microcrystalline waxes. These microcrystalline waxes are of the very best quality with respect to odour, colour, oil content and consistency. All types have been approved for food and pharmaceutical use.

Among other factors, this top quality means that microcrystalline waxes can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Thanks to its efficient oil-binding properties, Pomona Micro Wax 145M/153M are ideally suitable for use in the manufacture of Vaseline and cosmetics, as well as for chewing gum or candles. Pomona Micro Wax 185M is used in the manufacture of hot-melt adhesives and PVC.

Microcrystalline waxes are available ready packaged, in slab or granule form, and can also be supplied heated in liquid form.
