Our refined waxes have application in most areas of wax consumption including candles, boxboard saturation and coating, hot melt adhesives, rubber, PVC processing, crayons, polishes, board emulsions and even a chewing gum base.

We are one of the few remaining North American producers of fully-refined paraffin, intermediate & microcrystalline waxes. We operate one of the newest wax production facilities in the entire Western hemisphere located in Shreveport, LA. Our manufacturing site starts with crude oil and refines it to create fully refined, FDA-approved waxes.  We also produce slack & soft waxes along with petrolatum. We blend to meet customer-specific requirements. Our manufacturing facilities have met and exceeded ISO 9001:2015 quality standards.

We provide waxes via liquid form in tank car, tank truck, and iso-containers as well as solid form in pastilles or slabs ranging in volume from one pallet to full truck loads.
