A fire performance fuel .  Blends of paraffin and micro waxes in rubber compounds pers anti-ozonant agent , in order to prevent crack of the rubber . The antiozonant waxes can today are manufactured from synthetic waxes , FT wax , and Fischer Tropsch wax .  `` Potting '' guitar pick-ups , which decrease microphonic feedback aroused from the subtle movements of the pole slices  Paraffin , being wealthy in hydrogen , utilized , in some experiments with neutrons .  Impure mixture of mainly paraffin wax 's use in wax baths for beauty and therapy purposes .   Paraffin wax 're not used much to make initial models for casting , as it be relatively fragile at room temperature and in general were not able get cold-carved without excessive chipping and breaking .
