Welcome to ChemSE. For future reference, aim for a more specific question, which in your case could be "what are the conditions you want to use the material, what are chemicals (?) the material would be exposed to".

Because of the sparse information the question (currently) provides, the answer barely may be more specific than this suggestion: paraffin waxes. Among the chemical suppliers, Sigma-Aldrich's online catalogue, for example, lists several of them:
