CARNAUBA WAX
EXTRA LIGHT REFINED YELLOW TYPE 1 CARNAUBA WAX
(Commercial name – Citrine Extra Light)
     

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.

Carnaúba wax is used all over the world in many and different applications. Yellow waxes have many usages as in the cosmetic industry, car polishes making, paper and packaging industries, enamels, special paints, confessionary industry,

 

pharmaceutical production either as an external polishing agent or as an ingredient in microencapsulated controlled release pharmaceutical drugs, and many other usages as for the production of anionic emulsions with a wide range of usages. As this grade is particularly clear, in fact the flakes of this material are of pale yellow to off white color, emulsions are nearly white.

Carnauba waxes’ emulsions combine very easily with other emulsions made from 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 offer express our understanding of such a tendency and our wish to meet it.
