WAXES AND POLISHES


BEESWAX
Beeswax is a wax obtained from bee honeycombs. It is usually yellowish in color, fairly soft and has a honey-like odor. It has a melting point of 62-65°C. and is practically insoluble in water, slightly soluble in alcohol and soluble in turpentine. It is used in conjunction with other waxes to make wood polishes for floors and furniture. White beeswax is obtained by sun bleaching yellow beeswax. It is nearly white in color and is also called Bleached Yellow Wax, White Wax or Bleached Beeswax. Its melting point is 61-69°C. and it has the same properties and uses as yellow beeswax.

CARNAUBA WAX
Brazil Wax is obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian Wax Palm tree. The hardness and high-polish capability of this wax is well known. It has the highest melting point (83-86°C) of the waxes used in making furniture waxes and polishes. It is usually mixed with other waxes because of its hardness and brittleness. The color varys from light yellow to greenish brown. #1 yellow is a light yellow wax.

CANDELILLA WAX
Candelilla wax is harvested from the leaves of a plant grown in Mexico. Its melting point is only slightly lower than Carnauba Wax. It has the same desirable properties of hardness and high polish as Carnauba and is used in conjunction with Carnauba to make an emulsified wax described by master woodfinisher George Frank.

BUTCHERS WAX
White Diamond the Bowling Alley Paste Wax. The favorite with everyone who loves the rich glow of fine wood. Clear wax in turpentine and other select solvents. Cleans as it waxes. It polishes easily to a deep luster. Also recommended for shoes, boots, leather, copper, brass, autos, fiberglass, marble, sealed brick and flagstone, linoleum and cork floors. Boston Polish is an Amber Paste Wax exactly like White Diamond except for color. Same performance, on the same surfaces. The amber tint makes Boston Polish better at hiding nicks and scratches on wood.
