Waxes for Surface Coating Applications
Wax is used extensively in coatings and polishes.
A coat of machine wax can lubricate metallic parts of cutting tools, cast iron machine tables, saw blades, etc.
A coat of mould release wax can facilitate the separation of composite-made parts from their moulds or patterns.
More familiar to many, wax coats can be used to protect wood furniture, floors, painted surfaces like cars, etc.
Wax coats are even used for waterproofing cotton garments and fabric.
British Wax manufactures and distributes a wide range of natural and synthetic waxes suitable for surface coating.
