CARNAUBA WAX
FILTERED FATTY GRAY TYPE  4   CARNAUBA WAX
(Commercial name – ONIX)
     

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, however, this grade is produced starting either from the raw powder or from the coarse wax produced at the harvesting area.

Carnaúba wax is used all over the world in many and different applications. Usages

 

for this grade of fatty gray Carnauba wax
includes the production of metallic soaps, floor polishes either as solvent borne pastes and liquids or as water emulsions, shoes polishes, paper and packaging industries, some kind of coatings, and many other usages as for the production of nonionic emulsions. It is also indicated for the formulation of systems solvent borne dispersions to offer resistance to abrasion in the automobile industry and in blends with mineral waxes for usage as a component in the electrical auto parts production.

Emulsions of Carnauba wax combine easily with other made with paraffins, microcrystalline waxes, polyethilenes, EAA (ester of acrylic acid) and other polymers being a good vehicle for oil soluble pigments.
