WAXES / RESINS
Shellac wax yellow
Shellac wax is derived from the secretions of the “lac flee” (Kerria lacca), also called “shellac”, through a filtration or separation process involving several solvents. Shellac wax is yellow to dark brown, relatively hard, and is almost scentless at room temperature. Shellac wax is used in the production of wooden varnishes, polishing milk, and also for special paints and as a release agent.
