Carnauba Wax – Type 4
6004 Carnauba Wax Type 4 is darker in colour, suitable for industrial applications, dark polishes and coatings.
We also supply Type 1, Type 3, and Type 1 Organic Carnauba Wax (flake format).
Carnauba Wax is obtained from the leaves of the ‘Copernica Cerifera’ palm tree. Colour and quality of this product are determined by the age of the leaves and the process of extraction.
T1 is the first to be harvested, while T3 (mustard colour) and T4 (Dark Brown) are harvested later in the season and are a lower grade.
The Carnauba palm is indigenous to northern Brazil and can be found along riverbanks and streams. The tree expels wax through pores in the leaves; this maintains hydration in an equatorial climate.
Carnauba Wax is considered the hardest of natural waxes and produces a durable film.
