Scientifically-proven wax quality control testing above and beyond ASTM for consistent quality assurance.

Wax Quality Control Testing

We verify that each wax blend meets your exacting specifications with a series of scientifically-proven wax quality control tests in our own on-site laboratory. We use ASTM guidelines and have developed additional guidelines for consistent quality wax blends with the desired properties, characteristics and results you need.

We provide a Certificate of Analysis on every product showing the wax blend meets all of your performance requirements.

Some of the ASTM guidelines we use include:
