What makes wax fast?

What makes wax fast?

Post by John/Mary Beth Schoe » Thu, 28 Mar 1996 04:00:00

I am researching glide waxes and am having a hard time finding any
information on the chemical composition of various waxes, such as
paraffins, anti-statics, and fluoros.  I am also interested in what makes
certain waxes glide faster than others in certain conditions in terms of
the chemistry of the wax.  It seems that many of the local waxing experts
only know which waxes are fast in certain conditions, not why they are
fast.  Any info would be appreciated.
