TecGlaze, Polinox's Release Wax, Completes 30 Years

April 23 2018

Polinox has uninterruptedly produced TecGlaze, a mold release wax based on carnauba. “Much of the success of TecGlaze is due to the fact that the original recipe was maintained, especially in relation to the amount of carnauba,” said Roberto Pontifex, director of Polinox. This is because the raw material extracted from a palm species is the main responsible for the demolding of the composite pieces.

Supplied in cans (425 g) and buckets (3 kg and 6 kg), TecGlaze wax is easy to apply, making it ideal for composite manufacturers which are taking the first steps in the industry, as well as for those who do not require a very high volume of daily release.

Currently, Polinox has the capacity to produce 20 tons/month of TecGlaze. Traded almost in its entirety via distributors, the product accounted for about 5% of the company's revenue last year. “There was a growth of 4% in the period. This means that the small composite manufacturer had more purchasing power,” noted Pontifex.
