It sounds like you are looking for paraffin for infiltration (not embedding).  If this is so, use a paraffin with shorter polymers like Richard-Allan Paraffin Type 1 - The same company makes Types 3, 6, and 9 but these longer polymer paraffins are designed for sectioning and ribbon formation.

Hi all 
I have a question. If you spent time and answer this I will be appreciated. 
To use in our pathology laboratory we need to get beaded paraffin. I need to order it from companies. 
According to my research I understand that the oil content, penetration depth ... important for this product and I dont know what should % of this oil content be?
It will effect penetration dept? We need to get 56-58 C melting point parffin. 
Please inform 
thanks alot
