Quick Overview

Size: 500g and 2kg

Origin: Brazil



This vegetable base hard wearing wax is the purer form of T4 carnauba wax.

T1 carnauba wax is used in the pharmaceutical industry as a tablet-coating agent. Adding the carnauba wax aids in the swallowing of tablets for patients. A very small amount (less than a hundredth of one percent by weight, i.e., 30 grams for a 300 kg batch) is sprinkled onto a batch of tablets after they have been sprayed and dried. The wax and tablets are then tumbled together for a few minutes before being discharged from the tablet-coating machine.

As food grade T1 carnauba wax is use to wax and preserve or polish wood chopping boards, wooden spoons, chopsticks and other food handling utensils.
