Proagriwax

Proagriwax 72/78 B

Proagriwax 72/78 B is the most heat resistant wax in the Proagriwax series and is typically mixed with Proagriwax Mediterranean in order to increase the melting point of the latter. This is normally done when the temperature increases in the nursery late in the planting season, which requires a wax with a higher softening point.

Typical working temperature during application is from 83 ┬░C to 88 ┬░C. Because of the high melting point some clients use an agitator to avoid the formation of a solid layer on the surface of the wax melt.
