Residue Wax (Foots Oil)

Residue Wax or Foots Oil is the oil sweated out of slack wax.

It takes its name from the fact that it goes to the bottom, or foot, of the pan when sweated.
Wax sweating was originally used to separate wax fractions with various melting points from the wax obtained from shale oils. Wax sweating is still used to some extent but is being replaced by the more convenient crystallization process. In wax sweating, a cake of slack wax is slowly warmed to a temperature at which the oil in the wax and the lower-melting waxes become fluid and drip (or sweat) from the bottom of the cake, leaving a residue of higher-melting wax.
Foots Oil can be used as hydrophobia impregnation material, fuel brick component, raw material for production of grease lubricants, conservation oils and lubricants.
