Candlewic has the ability to turn wax into granulated or bead form. The granulated wax is commonly called wax art or wax beads, and it's made at our Doylestown facility.
The granulated wax is made by taking liquid wax and spraying it up into the air, and as the wax hits the cold air, it will bead. When the beads fall, they land on a drum that is continually rotating and moving the wax on to a vibrating belt. The vibrating belt helps cool the wax and move the wax into the box.
The granulator is great because any color can be made, and we have even done fragrances. The granulated wax has many uses, and when it's used as a straight paraffin, it melts very easily and is easy to measure.
