Wax for decorative plaster is a viscous mass, which is intended for application on the surface of plaster to add gloss and elegance.
The coating can differ in content:
• Solvent-based wax;
• Water-based wax.
The film-forming substances in these products could be paraffin, modified polyolefin (polyethylene, polypropylene, etc.), their copolymers and also various synthetic and natural waxes (beeswax, carnauba wax, etc.).
Waxes of Maxima-décor are water-based. After drying, the wax turns into a film and guarantees the durability and beauty of plaster or decorative plasters like STUCCO VENEZIANO, MARMORINO, TRAVERTINO and ART BETON under it.
The main peculiarity of wax is that it doesn’t change the texture of the coating, but emphasizes the relief, adds gloss and if the wax is colored – saturation or shade. The use of wax makes the gloss of STUCCO VENEZIANO more expressive (it allows to achieve a “mirror” effect after applying several coats and polishing). The wax protects decorative plasters and coatings against moisture and makes it washable.
The protective wax is not intended for applying on decorative coatings OTTOCENTO, ARABESK, DUNA and GALAXY, because they have pearly pigments in their content and need light access for decorative effect. The coat of wax spoils completely the beauty of pearly glitter.
