Quantity

Chestnut Microcrystalline Wax is a blend of high quality waxes rich in microcrystalline wax – a wax that has nothing to do with bees and is known for the fineness of its crystals.

This is mixed with a special solvent to create a firm wax which, when dry, knits down to form a very dense coating making it very water resistant. It is not waterproof, but it means that it will offer protection to items that are likely to come into contact with water for short periods of time.

Microcrystalline waxes also have a higher melting point than other waxes traditionally used to make polishes, the benefit of which is that repeated handling of items finished in Chestnut Microcrystalline Wax won’t finger mark in the same way, because its melting point is higher than normal body temperature.

Best used over a base coat of Chestnut Cellulose Sanding Sealer, apply a thin coat of Chestnut Microcrystalline Wax and then allow it to dry for about about 20 minutes before buffing to a shine. It can also be used as a top coat over other finishes such as Chestnut Melamine Lacquer and Chestnut Acrylic Lacquer as a means of preventing finger marks on the finished article.

Chestnut Microcrystalline Wax is certified compliant with the requirements of EN71-3, making is safe to use on toys and nursery furniture.
