Refined from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree these wax flakes can be diluted in turpentine to form a high-gloss varnish. Also known as Brazil wax or palm wax Carnauba wax is sometimes called ‘the queen of the waxes’; it is of an exceedingly high quality and frequently used in the best polishes and furniture waxes. It is obtained from the leaves of a palm tree only found in Brazil and it is said to be one of the hardest natural waxes known to man as well as possessing one of the highest melting points of the natural waxes.
When carnauba wax is buffed directly onto a surface it produces a high-gloss finish that does not flake off over time, instead becoming dull. A pure carnauba wax finish tends to be brittle and very difficult to polish once dried, which is why the carnauba wax is usually mixed with beeswax and turpentine to form a high quality wax or polish, depending on the mixture.
Our carnauba wax is supplied as flakes, to allow for easier heating prior to application or mixing with other products.
This product is the Prime Yellow grade of carnauba wax.
