Sonneborn microcrystalline wax products are the whitest in the market. These products consist of odorless, tasteless and nonpolar hydrocarbons with relatively high melting points.  They vary in physical properties such as hardness and melting point.

Sonneborn microcrystalline waxes play a critical role in a wide variety of applications. These products act as bases for chewing gum and as cold-flexible coatings for cheese wheels. They serve as excellent bases in lipstick, cold creams and ointments. Sonneborn microcrystalline wax products also lubricate, carry pigments and medication, and protect against moisture.

Sonneborn microcrystalline waxes are U.S. FDA compliant and play an important role in food packaging products that protect food, such as wax-impregnated paper, film, foil and corrugated board. This is why leading hot melt adhesive manufacturers choose Sonneborn products to help their hot melt adhesives flow readily and form flexible bonds.

From candles and caulk to sealants and fine wood polishes, many everyday products start with Sonneborn microcrystalline wax products.
