Kreidezeit Punic Wax is a beeswax soap of paste-like consistency. Use as the final finish to polished plaster applications, such as Stucco Fine and Marmorino.
Punic Wax is based on beeswax with a creamy, soap-like consistency. The beeswax is molten, cleaned and then bleached over active charcoal and Fuller’s earth using a special method.
In a process developed by Kreidezeit, the bleached wax is saponified with potash so that it is partly water soluble and easy to apply.
Use Punic Wax as either a matt or (after polishing) shiny wax coating for polished plasters. You can also use it as an addition to casein marble flour paint or glue-bound distemper for spattle techniques and apply to various coatings for a polished, protective finish.
Composition (Full declaration)
Water, beeswax, potash, silicic acid.
- Creamy and paste-like texture.
- No organic solvents (the solvent is water).
- Satin to high-gloss finish after polishing (therefore dirt-repellent).
Approximately 30 ml per m²
Marmorino, Stuccolustro, Stucco Fine, Lime Wall Finish.
Apply Punic wax undiluted with a trowel in one to several wafer-thin layers. Apply only to surfaces that have already been soaped.
After drying, polish with a trowel.
Apply Punic wax undiluted and wafer-thin with a cloth and polish immediately with a clean, dry and soft
cloth. Apply only to surfaces that have already been soaped.
For example on Casein Marble Paint designed with marble imitations: apply the Punic Wax thinly with a trowel and, after drying, either polish with a trowel or by hand with soft cloths, horsehair brushes or a polishing machine for an even shine.
Attention with machine polishing: Too high pressure and too high rpm can lead to damage of the surface due to heat development!
The wax coating creates a deep and transparent character that is deceptively similar to real marble.
