What is paraffin?

Paraffin is an odorless colorless and tasteless hydrocarbon compound which is produced from petroleum derivatives. Some people think the only paraffin use is making candles, but there are many paraffin uses. Paraffin can be categorized in two types; paraffin wax ( solid paraffin ) and liquid paraffin ( white oil ). Paraffin wax ( solid paraffin ) is mainly used for candle and match making industries, while liquid paraffin ( white oil ) is mainly used in industrial, hygienic and pharmaceutical industries. In another aspect, paraffin uses are categorized in 3 types; food grade paraffin, industrial grade paraffin and pharmaceutical grade paraffin. Food grade paraffin is mainly used in husbandries in order to control the digestion of the livestock. It is also used for some humanitarian food products.

Paraffin wax ( solid paraffin ) and liquid paraffin ( white oil )are irreplaceable important raw materials in various industries such as textile, rubber, isolation, cosmetics, candles, matches, adhesives, and lubricants.

How to find out the quality of paraffin?

First of all, you should know the purpose of using paraffin, because the quality of paraffin is figured out as per the application of paraffin in the specific industry. For example, paraffin wax with lower oil content is considered to be high quality in candle making industries, but it is vice versa in lubrication industry.

Generally, the whiter the paraffin wax is, the higher quality the paraffin wax has comparing to milky or yellow pale-colored paraffin waxes. Also, availability of white crystal seeds in the inner layers of the paraffin shows the high quality of the product.

With respect to be located in one of the most strategic regions in the world, having good access to major commercial ports, railway stations and land roads in the world, high quality of the manufactured chemical raw materials and petrochemical products, and competitive prices which can beat so many other manufacturers in the world, there are thousands of big and medium importers around the world especially in India, East Africa, South Asia, Europe and South America which are willing to buy chemicals and petrochemical products from Iran, but they have worries that how can they purchase from Iran? and how can they receive their purchased products in a safe and smooth way?

The first barrier for the customers is banking transactions: almost all the major banks in the world refuse to do transactions with Iranian banks due to U.S. sanctions. Besides, almost none of Iranian manufacturers have any offshore company or bank account. In the best way, they will introduce a foreign bank account from a company which is not directly linked with their own factory in Iran. Therefore, the customers worry that what happens to their money in case any dispute or mismanagement happens with the factory? How can they follow up in case the factory does not cooperate with them in an amicable manner?

How can Tejaras Co. solve banking issues for its valued customers?

With real and exact study of the political and economical situation in the region, we decided to establish strong business partnership with some companies in Dubai, Turkey and Hong Kong, and arrange all our banking transactions and documentation through our these partner companies outside Iran.

Therefore, we guarantee that your payments will be 100% safe with us.



The second barrier for the customers is delivery term: almost all Iranian chemical and petrochemical manufacturers and refineries sell their products on EXW factory basis in bulk, and it is very difficult for foreign customers to make their shipments out of Iran as it is almost impossible for them to communicate with local transportation and packaging/drumming companies in Iran.

How can Tejaras Co. solve delivery issues for its valued customers?

The third barrier for the customers is shipping documents: As per the new sanctions against Iran, in some countries, shipments departed from Iranian ports are not allowed to be cleared at customs. So, the customers may look for some solutions that how they can import Iran origin products to their countries.
