Modern Applications of  wax

 

  • Candle-making
  • Coatings for waxed paper or cloth
  • Investment casting
  • Agent for preparation of specimens for histology
  • Bullet lubricant – with other ingredients, such as olive oil and beeswax
  • Crayons
  • Solid propellant for hybrid rocket motors
  • Component of surfwax, used for grip on surfboards in surfing
  • Component of glide wax, used on skis and snowboards
  • Friction-reducer, for use on handrails and cement ledges, commonly used in skateboarding
  • Ink. Used as the basis for solid ink different color blocks of wax for thermal printers. The wax is melted and then sprayed on the paper producing images with a shiny surface
  • Antiozonant agents: blends of paraffin and micro waxes are used in rubber compounds to prevent cracking of the rubber; the admixture of wax migrates to the surface of the product and forms a protective layer. The layer can also act as a release agent, helping the product separate from its mould
  • Mechanical thermostats and actuators, as an expansion medium for activating such devices
  • "Potting" guitar pickups, which reduces microphonic feedback caused from the subtle movements of the pole pieces
  • "Potting" of local oscillator coils to prevent microphonic frequency modulation in low end FM radios.
  • Wax baths for beauty and therapy purposes
  • Thickening agent in many Paintballs, as used by Crayola
  • An effective, although comedogenic, moisturiser in toiletries and cosmetics such as Vaseline
  • Prevents oxidation on the surface of polished steel and iron
  • Phase change material for thermal energy storage
  • Manufacture of boiled leather armor and books
  • Skateboard Wax
