Apiezon Wax W100

This wax is softer than Wax W and softens between 50 degrees to 60 degrees C. It is used where a wax seal is needed, but where the softer wax will reduce the danger of a joint cracking if the parts are subject to vibration. The safe working temperature for Wax W100 is obviously lower than for Wax W and is about 50 degrees C. Estimated vapor pressure is 6 x 10-9 torr at 20 degrees C.

PRECAUTIONS: Apiezon Products - Health and Safety

Apiezon products have been widely and safely used in vacuum distillation apparatus in both industry and laboratories for a number of years.  As a result they should not present a health hazard assuming normal standards of industrial hygiene and safety are followed in their handling.

All Apiezon products are bases on petroleum products of a low order of acute toxicity.  However, certain individual develop a rash after repeated contact.  Therefore, it is recommended that gloves be worn to handle Apiezon.  If Apiezon material is inadvertently in contact with the skin, wipe the area carefully, then cleanse thoroughly using a mild soap.  Should any Apiezon products be heated for application, vent the fumes and avoid breathing the warm vapors.

In terms of explosion and fire, Apiezon products are considered non-hazardous.
