Merk (Darmstad, Germany) used to manufacture paraffin waxes of 63ºC and 65ºC, hard enough to be used in plant microtomy. They are all whitish.
Try contacting Merk, or perhaps Adrich.

Subject: [Histonet] "harder" paraffin

Hi Histonetters,
Good Friday to you all. Do you know if there is a “harder” paraffin  that may offer more support to the tissue while cutting? I currently use Paraplast Plus and love it, but now I am cutting some polymer material and there is some tearing and was thinking that maybe a different paraffin would help. I am trying to avoid embedding in plastic.
