Palmitic Waxes

Palm oil is produced from the fruit of the African and American oil palms and palm kernel oils from the kernels of the same fruits. Processing of these oils by distillation, crystallisation and hydrogenation produce palm wax and hydrogenated palm stearin (HPS). Depending on the fractions used and the refining processes Palm wax properties can vary from source to source. Although the chemical composition is different from paraffin waxes some of the physical properties are similar and can be used as replacement in certain applications.
