Proagriwax Orangio

Proagriwax Orangio is a heat resistant wax with a high softening point.  It is typically used after callusing before planting in the nursery field. It is not recommended to use in cold storage because of its hardness. This type of wax is traditionally used in Germany and Austria. Typical working temperature during application is 82 °C to 85 °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.
