5 Tips For Using Bottle Sealing Wax
Bottle sealing wax creates a secure seal to protect bottled goods, including beer, wine, honey, mead and maple syrup. Keep reading to learn a few tips for using bottle sealing wax.
1. Choose Your Wax
To get started, select your wax. Our bottle sealing wax creates a flexible, easy-to-remove seal and is available in many colors and finishes. Choose from vibrant solid colors, sparkly metallics and shiny pearls. We can even create custom colors to match your brand. You can view color options and order those products directly through our website here.
When ordering your wax, keep in mind each pound of wax seals about 25-30 bottles.
2. Get The Right Supplies
Make the dipping process easy with the correct supplies. You’ll need your bottled product, Blended Waxes Bottle Sealing Wax, one hot plate, two metal canisters (one for melted wax and one for water), room temperature water and a thermometer.
3. Heat To The Right Temperature
Put the wax blocks in one of your metal canisters and heat it to 250-275℉ for best results. Check your thermometer frequently during the dipping process to ensure the wax remains at the proper temperature. Do not heat past 300℉.
4. Dip The Bottle
Dry the bottle off before dipping to remove any moisture for the best seal. Hold the bottle upside down and dip the neck into the wax. Once the bottle is coated, remove it from the wax and let the excess drip off. Then, dip the top of the wax-coated bottle in the canister of room temperature water to set the wax.
5. Store Your Product
The wax typically cools in about 30 minutes. Before packing the bottles away, make sure the wax is completely cooled. The wax seal will protect your product from leaking or spilling. It also keeps air and bacteria out of the bottle during storage.
