Wax Additives: Polishability

Polishability
Polishability

Polishability is a requirement for the most varied of applications, e.g. for car polishes, furniture polishes or floor care products. Depending on the melting point, Carnauba waxes and/or beeswaxes are used for car and furniture polishes, while PP and PE waxes are used in floor care products.
