Wax emulsions are used in polishes like for example floor-, furniture- and car polishes to improve the following surface properties:
- Scratch resistance
- Gloss & matting
- Black heel & fingermarking resistance
Because of their low melting point, Carnauba, Paraffin and Beeswax emulsions are mostly used in car- and furniture polishes whereas higher melting wax emulsions based on PE and PP are used in floor care polishes.
