EcoSoya CB-Advanced has a smooth, even burn pool with consistent color retention. It works great with dyes and is highly frost resistant although frosting can still occur as it is a characteristic of soy wax. It contracts slightly from container, producing a beautiful appearance.
In traditional candle making it is not unusual to filter the fragrance, wax and dye mixture before or while pouring the candle eliminating any possibility of foreign materials in your candle.
Containers and jars should be clean and at ambient temperature. No pre-heating is necessary.
Most dyes (powder, liquid, chips, blocks, etc.) work with CB-Advanced Soy. To achieve better color depth, use about 30% more dye. When using powder dyes, heat the wax to 190°F (87.8°C), add the dye, and mix until dissolved. Powder dyes may also be dissolved in fragrances and then added to the melted wax (be sure the dye has dissolved completely before adding). *When using powder dyes dissolved in fragrance, liquid dyes, color blocks, chips or no dye, heat the wax to155°F (68.3°C).
Many fragrances work in CB-Advanced, especially those designed for soy wax in general. Recommended maximum scent load is about 12%. To minimise scent loss, add scent prior to pouring but at a wax temperature no less than 135°F (57.2°C). Accommodate for temperature drop due to the addition of the cooler scent when targeting the pour temperature. Optimum hot scent throw is achieved with a full diameter burn pool at a depth of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm). Some scents may react poorly causing bleed, objectionable frosting or poor flame quality. Try a different scent to correct that occurrence.
CB-Advanced Soy requires larger wicking than paraffin. Wicks such as paper cored, cotton cored or metal cored should be avoided as they tend to cause sooting and carbon build-up. A general rule of thumb: have a full burn pool of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm) deep, from side to side, in approximately the same number of hours for every inch (2.5 cm) of the container diameter.
Example: A jar with a diameter of 4 inches (10.2 cm) should achieve a burn pool depth of ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.3 cm), side to side, within about 4 hours.
