Soy Wax Quantum 220
Quantum 220 is EcoSoya’s intended replacement for the now discontinued CB-Advanced and is recommended for making soy container candles.
This is an entirely new wax technology, quite different from previous EcoSoya waxes, and may require some reformulation of your recipe’s and technique; especially if you are switching from CB-Advanced. Your own testing will be required to determine the best pour temperature, wicking, and fragrance load for your desired result.

Glossary and detailed pouring notes
Fragrance Temperature: The recommended temperature you should heat the wax to before adding your fragrance. Exceeding this temperature can damage the fragrance.
Melt Point: The point at which the solid wax will melt, the lower the melt point the longer your candle will burn. This is also useful to know if you plan to transport or display your candles in a hot environment.
Pour Temperature: The recommended temperature for pouring your wax (and fragrance) into the candle jar.
If difficulties are experienced with your pour temperatures, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 2°C.
When candles are poured at a lower temperature (about 43.3°C) add the scent at a higher temperature (60°C) and allow the wax to cool to the desired pour temperature.
Pour temperatures should be checked and confirmed according to seasonal changes.
