Sumac wax (berry wax, Japan wax)
Sumac wax, also known as Japan wax, sumac wax, vegetable wax, berry wax, etc., is a yellowish to off-white, waxy, water-insoluble solid with a gel-like feel.
Our company's sumac wax is a fat extracted from the peel of sumac fruit (uracum seed kernel). The exquisite production process of lacquer wax particles adopts carbon dioxide critical extraction technology and natural sunlight decolorization and physical activated carbon penetration decolorization and deodorization technology. This is very effective. White paint wax particles are odorless and no chemicals are added during the production process. Material guarantee products are 100% natural plant products. It has a high melting point and low acid value. It has high elasticity, flexibility and excellent brightness, and can be used as fiber lubricating softener and high-end cosmetic raw material. They are all important raw materials for the production of daily chemical products.
Sumac wax is rich in about 83% saturated fatty acids, mainly palmitic acid, accounting for 76.28%, unsaturated fatty acids mainly oleic acid, accounting for 15.47%, and also contains a small amount of C6 and C8 fatty acids.
