CARNAUBA WAX
REFINED LIGHT FATTY GRAY TYPE 3 CARNAuBA WAX
(Commercial name – Tropical Extra)
     

As it was already explained, the Carnauba leaves after drying present flakes and/or powder of the waxy material that recover them in order to give protection against dehydration. The leaves are then mechanically beaten in order to free the waxy material that is either processed at the countryside to be sold as a coarse wax to the refineries or it is sold as powder to the refiners. As a matter of principle and mainly for our special grades of waxes, we prefer to buy the powder that was never before cooked under direct fire as it is the wax that is processed at the hinterland. So this grade of wax is made starting from the crude powder.

Carnauba wax is used all over the world in many and different applications. Usages includes the cosmetic industry, floor polishes either as solvent borne pastes and liquids or as water emulsions, shoe’s polishes, paper and packaging industries,

 

enamels, special paints, confessionary and bakery industry, microencapsulated products, either used in medicines or inks, and many other usages. Nonionic emulsions made starting from that grade of carnauba have large number of usages, including for fruit and vegetable polishing and protection in after harvesting storage and sale.

Carnauba wax emulsions combine easily with other emulsions made with microcrystalline waxes, paraffins, polyethilenes, EAA (ester of acrylic acid) and other polymers.

As it is well detected a tendency of the markets to use each time more the light colored grades of Carnauba waxes our enlarged offer of such lighter grades, express our understanding of that move and our wish to meet it.
