SASOLWAX 6213 Container Wax is a professional-grade blend of highly refined paraffin wax and triglycerides, designed specifically for use in Glass & Container candles. Manufactured in Germany by market leader SASOLWAX, it has a low meltng point of ~48C, which makes this wax a perfect choice for one fill operations.
With its creamy smooth appearance, ability to hold fragrance and excellent burning properties, this container wax is one of the most widely used by professional candle manufacturers in Europe. SASOLWAX 6213 container wax is delivered in 5kg slabs.
Wicking: We recommend using our TB wicks, CL wicks or Wedo's ECO wicks for SASOLWAX 6213. Wedo LX, V ad VRL series wicks may also be suitable. Woodwicks and cotton cored wicks are not usually a good choice for SASOLWAX, as they tend to smoke, but may be suitable for some fragrances. The following table is intended as a guide only, but may assist in getting you started.
75mm Diameter: TB16 - CL12 - ECO 2
70mm Diameter: TB14 - CL10 - ECO 1
65mm Diameter: TB12 - CL08 - ECO 1
60mm Diameter: TB10 - CL06 - ECO 0.5
55mm Diameter: TB08 - CL04 - ECO 0.5
The below process is a very quick way of finding suitable wicks for your candles. We recommend you conduct a slab test for every different blend of wax and oil that you intent to use, before making any candles :)
1. Mix the wax and your chosen oil at the required loading (typically 7-10% fragrance)
2. Pour the mixture into a large baking tray and allow to cool fully
3. Remelt the surface so that it is flat and allow to settle for at least 24 hours
4. Poke holes at ~10cm intervals using a skewer, screwdriver or similar
5. Insert various wicks that you think may be suitable (we recommend trying as many as possible)
6. Trim and light wicks in a draft free room
7. Allow to burn for 3-4 hours, observing for clubbing, excessive smoke or flame height and wick posture
8. Extinguish wicks, allow to cool and record diameter of melt pools for each wick, along with any observations on posture/clubbing/flame height
9. Remove wicks and any residue from wax, then remelt surface and repeat steps 4-8 as required (you may need pliers to remove the wicks)
10. Once complete, the wax can be used to make candles of various sizes and conduct confirmatory container tests.
If done correctly, a slab test will provide you with a long list of wick options that will allow you to wick almost any size of container.
Slab testing will help you to identify candidate wicks for your candles, but you will still need to conduct tests in the actual container you intend on using. We call this container-specific burn testing.
We recommend that container specific burn testing be conducted in accordance with the following standards before putting candles up for sale...
EN 15493:2007 – 'Candles – specification for fire safety'
You may also wish to apply safety labels as outlined in the following standard...
These standards are available for purchase from The British Standards Institute and other bodies within Europe.

Love this wax. I use around 9% FO and found the TB wicks work well and with some FOs it was the V or CL wicks that were needed.
Sometimes it seems a wick size in between the two you try would be perfect, with one being too small, and the next size up smoking like mad - but you can usually get away with the smaller one in glass as the contained heat will help achieve a full melt pool as it burns down.
I found tins trickier as they don't get as hot as glass and help the wax melt so much.
It is more prone to wet spots that other waxes I've tried, but I think it is worth it for scent throw and ease of wicking. It does take a lot of testing to get good adhesion and you need to find the container and pour temp that works for you. Storing them somewhere warmish will help too.

Brilliant wax, performs exactly as described. I'm an absolute beginner & found this wax easy to use; I've created two small candles so far that burn well with amazing scent throw :) Recommended!

I am very happy using this wax. It is alot more creamy than Paraffin Wax. Very nice finish and the pastel colours are good..i would recommend this wax. The wax is alot softer than Paraffin.
