At Dongke Group, we supply and provide a wide range of products that are absolutely necessary to improve the finish of wood products. Because there are so many different waxes available for different types of wood, it can be difficult to choose and figure out which wax to use.

Each wax gives the word specific properties and finishes that can improve its appearance and durability.

Let’s take a look at the many types of wood waxes and the best wax available for your business needs.

What is wood wax?

Wood wax is a typical product of the woodworking industry, often used in combination with varnishes and paints. However, wood wax provides better protection than any other coating.

A thin layer of wax applied to the entire surface of wood products is usually enough to protect them from moisture and natural wear and tear. Wax also helps the wood retain its colour over time.

There are several types of wood waxes available, made from a mixture of Brazilian carnauba wax and paraffin wax. These are usually mixed with other standard paints to enhance the colour of the wood. This combination of waxes most effectively seals and repels moisture and harmful substances that can otherwise permanently damage the wood.

What are the advantages of wood wax?

Most commercially available wood waxes are translucent and are often used to produce highly transparent coatings for standard items.

Using wax to polish wood products has a number of benefits, ranging from aesthetic to increasing the longevity of the furniture.

  • Preserves the elasticity of wood: Wood wax is usually an oil or wax-based substance with a microporous structure. The microporous nature of wood helps furniture to retain its flexibility and also greatly improves the overall appearance and colour of the wood.
  • Protecting items from dust: the general use of wood wax helps to keep the wood free from dirt and dust. The light coating provides protection to the furniture or wood product from everyday dirt and stains.
  • Prevent warping: wood products can lose their shape and structure over time due to environmental changes. Expansion and shrinkage are the most common deformations that can occur when exposed to moisture or heat. Transparent layers of wood wax allow products to breathe and prevent all deformations that reduce their authenticity and shelf life.
  • Wide range of colours: wood wax is available in a wide range of colours and options, offering many possibilities to change the appearance of the wood after finishing.
  • Smooth and shiny appearance: the clear wood wax coating makes wooden furniture more attractive and creates a very smooth satin finish that undoubtedly accentuates the colour and texture of wooden products.
