An online review of suppliers of paraffin wax indicates a range of specific gravity for paraffin wax, from 0.82 to 0.96. The variation arises from the degree of refining - the less refined waxes a higher percentage of paraffin oil and are consequently lighter (have a lower SG). More highly refined paraffin wax has much lower retained oil ( approx. 0.5%), and are therefore much denser.
