Jarcane™ 18

CAS:593-45-3 EINECS:209-790-3

Jarcane™ 18 is a high purity alkane that is a single cut, linear, vegetable-derived paraffin made from renewable resources like natural fatty acids or natural fatty acid methyl esters. It is characterized by a sharp melting profile, solvency in liquid, high latent heat of fusion, chemical inertness, and non-tendency to supercooling.
This product has 18 carbons.

Jarcane™ 18 is an excellent choice when looking for a phase change material for latent heat storage applications including functional textiles and construction. It is also an alternative choice when looking for non-polar solvent, oils or wax additives based on renewable resources for environmentally-friendly or natural formulation concepts. The heat of fusion has a cooling effect on the skin.

  • Creams and lotions
  • Color cosmetics
