Wax separation

£285 per sample

Synthetic surfaces containing a wax-based coating need to be treated and cleaned prior to the material tests described below. Soxhlet extraction is used for the removal of the wax and allows us to calculate crude percentage of wax in the surface. For further analysis of the wax, gas chromatography is used. Please note: Wax separation is required for waxed surfaces prior to other services being undertaken.
