Technical Information

Golden Brands – GW 419 Instructions

Golden Brands - GW 419 allows for top surface re-melting if necessary to create a smooth top to your container candle. Golden Brands – GW 419 is highly frost resistant and works great with dyes and has excellent scent throw both cold and hot.

Containers/Jars: Containers and jars should be clean and at ambient temperature. No pre-heating is necessary.

Dyes: Our Voyageur candle dye blocks and liquids work well with Golden Brands – GW 419 Soy Wax. When using dyes, heat the wax to 180°F, add the dye, and mix until dissolved.

Fragrances: Recommended maximum scent load is about 5-10%. It is recommended that after you melt your wax to 180°F (+/-5°F) that you remove from heat and then add your fragrance, stirring gently for approximately 2 minutes to make sure fragrance is fully combined with the wax.

Melting: Melt Golden Brands – GW 419 to 180°F (+/-5°F) under gentle agitation to promote even heating and thorough mixing. Add any desired fragrance and dye, mixing well to incorporate. Allow the wax to cool to the 170°F - 180°F pour temperature.

Pouring:

  • Pour temperatures will vary according to container type and size, fragrance(s), essentials oils, dye(s), and the candle effects you desire.
  • Different container configurations result in various cooling rates. Cooling too quickly or too slowly can cause concaving and/or frosting. Pour temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes and adjusted as necessary for the size/type of container using.
  • As the candle is being poured, it is typical for wax to solidify at first contact with the container. Golden Wax – GW 419 should have a pour temperature high enough so that when the container is full, the initial solidified wax has re-melted.

Candle Cooling: Cool undisturbed candles at an ambient temperature of 70° F (21.1°C). The containers should be about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) apart to allow air circulation for even cooling. The container should remain open during cooling for at least 24 hrs (large candles may require longer times). Slower cooling will encourage container adhesion while quicker cooling will encourage container pull away. Golden Wax – GW 419 is designed to adhere to the glass and should be encouraged to do so. Candles should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning.

Test Burning: Test burn the candle for burn pool diameter and quality after it has setup (cured or dried) for a minimum of 48 hours. Every combination of container, wax, dye, fragrances, and wick should be tested for burn quality.

Storage: Packaged: Due to its low melt point it is important to keep flakes stored in a cool dry location away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture.

General Trouble Shooting:

  • Test for one variable at a time when trouble shooting to isolate the cause. Variables include (but are not limited to): the container, wax, dye, fragrance, wick, pour temperature, and environmental conditions such, as cooling temperature, along with manufacturing conditions.
  • First make a candle in the container with only the wick (no dye or fragrance). If it looks good then the wax is performing normally.
  • Then, one at a time, change a variable. Try adding the dye without fragrance to the container, wax and wick. If it looks good and burns well, the dye is compatible with the wax.
  • Try adding the fragrance without dye to the container, wax and wick. If it looks good and burns well, the fragrance is compatible with the wax.
  • Try the dye and fragrance together with the container, wax and wick. If it looks good and burns well the dye/fragrance combination is compatible with the wax.
  • If you are experiencing burn problems, try a different type or size of wick.
  • Other variables to try are different pouring and cooling temperatures and even different containers.
  • Ensure all equipment and materials are contaminant free.
  • Test for one variable at a time when trouble shooting to isolate the cause.

Shelf Life: When stored properly, as per instructions, Golden Wax - GW 419 has a minimum shelf life of 3 years.

Smooth tops every time

This was has been amazing so far! We have found it works amazing when it is poured at a high temperature (170F). Glossy smooth tops and no issues with a 9% fragrance load. I can't comment on glass adhesion as I use candle tins, but it's worked really well for me. Good scent throw both hot and cold. Only negative so far has been the occasional sink hole during testing after the first or second light. I'm still doing some more tests to see if this is something can be improved. I will say the higher the pour temp, the less risk of sink holes after lighting, at least that's what I have found so far. I was using C3 and C1 wax and it definitely performs better then those. I have yet to try any other wax from golden brands, so I can't compare those.

Expected better!

Just finished testing a bunch of different candles with this wax. Followed instructions perfectly and always had sink holes. I tried other temps as well...would pre heat jars... Didnt change. Every time I would burn test a candle then let it set and new sink hole would form! Glad I only bought a small bag, will be trying out something else next time.
