Various Waxes

Carnauba Wax #1

A very hard natural wax exuded by the leaves of a species of palm tree native to Brazil. Carnauba wax melts at 180° to 187°F (80°-86°C). This is a refined No. 1 Yellow Carnauba Wax meeting the U.S.P. requirements.

Petronauba C

A synthetic Carnauba wax. Petronauba wax melts at 199°F (93°C).

D2502-0055 pounds (2.25 kilograms)$30.25

Microcrystalline Waxes

These waxes are obtained from the refining of petroleum reaction and they consist of very complex mixtures of isoparaffinic and naphthenic hydrocarbons with molecular weights of 500 to 800 or so. Microcrystalline waxes are much less crystalline than paraffin waxes, the crystals are extremely thin and they are dispersed in a large amount of non-crystalline, super-cooled, highly viscous material. This is what gives rise to the unusual adhesive and flexibility properties of the microcrystalline waxes. BeSquare waxes are listed by their melting temperature. W-445 melts at 170°F (77°C), and W-835 melts at 175°F (80°C).

Renaissance Wax

Renaissance Wax

Renaissance wax translucency allows unlimited applications without obscuring fine surface details.

Renaissance wax may be used with complete success on any solid surface including wood, metal, marble, onyx, shell, stone, ivory, plastics, leather and even paper. A simple test on a white card will show that the polish does not stain or discolor. Having a moisture resistance greatly superior to that of other waxes, Renaissance wax will protect polished surfaces (especially marble) from normal spillage. The hardness of a matured wax coating also gives excellent protection against heat and finger marks, which are easily buffed away.

Unlike normal polishes which are liberally applied, Renaissance gives its best results when used with restraint. The refined microcrystalline waxes have a far greater spread, so small dabs go a long way. Rewaxing is required less frequently, too. Renaissance wax is the best furniture polish.

Conservation Wax

This proprietary blend of natural waxes is used by many museums in the New England region as a backing wax for deteriorating paintings. Applied in conjunction with sheet reinforcement or without, depending on the extent of damage and materials involved. Melting point: 140°F. Conservation Wax has a Flash Point of 350°F and should be melted in a double boiler to prevent overheating and loss of volatile components.

D2522-225½ pound (225 grams) $20.50
D2522-0011 pound (450 grams)$37.65
D2522-0055 pounds (2.25 kilograms)$178.85

Outdoor Sculpure Wax

A blend of waxes for the coating and treatment of outdoor sculptures. Wax is melted and brushed on, then bussed to a thin finish. Blended using white Victory Wax, Polywax 2000, Cosmoloid 80H and Benzotriazole.

D2524-0011 kilogram $29.00
D2524-01212 kilograms $235.00

Polywaxes

Polywax 2000 is a polymer of ethylene with a molecular weight of 2000. It melts at 257°F (125°C) and can be most easily thought of as a high melting microcrystalline wax. Small percentages of Polywax 2000 can be added to regular microcrystalline waxes to substantially prolong the life of outdoor wax coatings.

Polywax 500 has a lighter molecular weight and a melting point of 190°F (97°C).
