PACKING

///

Slack waxes contain oil and wax, and are byproducts of lubricating oil refinement.

These are highly specialized products that can be found in everything from industrial lubricants to candles to matches. DYM Resources is especially active in the European slack wax refining industry.

DYM Resources focuses on supplying slack waxes to clients outside the seasonal candle market. This requires specialized knowledge of different paraffin products and quality parameters. We supply slack wax, semi-refined paraffin, paraffin, ceresin, and petrolatum. Our primary sources are located in central Asia, though we are currently in the process of expanding our reach.
