Waxmul is an emulsion of
Refined Paraffin Wax
in water. The emulsifiers
used are non-ionic, unlike conventional wax emulsions which are
soap based. Hence the emulsion has an excellent hard water stability.
The non-ionics are alcohol ethoxylates and therefore non-toxic.

is used for different purposes
depending on the application.
In case of rubber foam it creates a layer of paraffin wax on the surface
of the finished product which results in a glossy appearance. It also
creates a water resistant surface which prevents a loss of hardness
due to moisture pick up by the hydrophilic china clay filler. When used
in small quantities it also acts like a defoamer in dipping baths.
