As a bio-organic material, wood will be damaged by environmental factors such as sunlight, water, weather, and biological factors such as pests and diseases.
The biggest influencing factor is the change of moisture content, which is easy to cause wood deformation and cracking. Protective wax for wood is coated on the wood to form a protective film to protect the wood from moth-eaten erosion, shrinkage, expansion, or mildew. On the other hand, the texture of the wood is clearer, which improves the beauty of the wood.
Protective wax for wood is used in many applications to provide a functional coating. This ranges from where the wood polish wax is providing a barrier, as a low temperature melting, low viscosity diluent or providing gloss, release or hydrophobicity.
Coatings are commonly based on paraffin wax and microcrystalline wax. Petroleum-based wax and wax blend can be applied to numerous surfaces to reduce unwanted penetration or interactions of numerous liquids (water, grease, etc) and gases (oxygen, etc.). Other functionalities like specific adhesion, rust prevention or heat seal are enhanced by the addition of functional polymers, resins, pigments, dyes, and other additives.
