It has a low melting point (56-57º C, water bath temperature 45-50º C) and is available in 2 packaging options, a 2 lb. poly bag or 4.5 lb. jug. The perforated poly bag is easy to pour and takes up minimal space.
The resealable wide mouth plastic jug facilitates pouring as well as disposing of the used paraffin.
Jug may also be rinsed and reused for other purposes.
