Wax Iron Setting

Iron Temperature Chart

If your iron isn't calibrated, what you dial in may not be the exact temperature of the iron. Use these numbers as a guide and adjust down to the lowest temperature that will maintain the wax in a liquid state at a length of about 4 inches (10 cm) behind your iron. Using your judgment is always preferred to relying on the dial setting.

Wax Temperature (F) Iron Temp (F) Iron Temp (C)
Warm 230 110
Cold/All-Temp 265 130
>32 230 110
25 - 34 240 115
20 - 28 255 125
15 - 21 265 130
<21 275 135
<15 285 140


Note: At 285 F / 140 C you should be using fiberlene between your base and the iron to prevent base damage.
