Optimizing Tefawax®

Tefafine™ candle additives

AAK's Tefafine™ portfolio of candle additives is carefully developed to enhance and finetune the performance of our Tefawax® products.

Improving candle quality, functionality and appearance 

The main objective of AAK’s Tefafine candle additives is to increase the overall stability in Tefawax products by controlling the crystallization process. In addition, Tefafine prevents common issues in candle manufacturing, such as frosting, blooming and sweating.

With a well-structured wax composition and efficient crystallization process in place, Tefafine generates a significantly smoother candle surface with less shrinkage, and reduces the substantial migration risk of color, oil and fragrance. Depending on the final application, dosing and mixing may vary between 1 and 7 percent.
