Five differences between wood wax oil and varnish
Sep 28, 2018

Wood wax oil and varnish paint on the wood surface when the texture becomes clearer and natural, both for decoration paint, in the decoration performance is equal, so wood wax oil and varnish what is the difference? Why do some people prefer wood wax? Next, I'll give you a brief introduction to the difference between wood wax and varnish.

. I. The difference between wood wax oil and varnishes-the main components

The main ingredients of wood wax oil are catalpa oil, linseed oil, perilla oil, turpentine, palm wax, plant resin and natural pigment, including vegetable oil and plant wax, without toxic components such as triphenyl, formaldehyde and heavy metals. The varnish is composed of resin as the main film-forming material and solvent. It can be divided into two categories: oil base varnish and tree ester varnish. Oil base varnish is commonly called "Fangli Shui", and Tree Ester varnish is commonly called "bubble standing water". In addition, the resin is toxic, so varnishes belong to petrified paint.

Second, the difference between wood wax oil and varnish

Wood wax oil contains vegetable oil and plant wax, which can penetrate into the wood interior, moisturize and preserve the wood deeply, and plant wax can be closely combined with the wood fiber to form a wax layer that enhances the hardness of the wood surface and is waterproof and anti-fouling. Abrasion resistance and other functions. Under the double-layer action of vegetable oil and plant wax, the wood can be moisturized and beautified externally. The varnish is mainly formed in the wood a smooth, transparent but impermeable resin film, can insulate the air and moisture, but can not nourish the wood interior.

III. Differences between wood wax oil and varnishes-environmental requirements for painting

Wood wax oil is suitable for indoor and outdoor work, because it can penetrate into wood, so in dry conditions, wood can also exchange moisture through the holes of wood, so that the local moisture content of wood can be homogenized; in humid conditions, The gas permeability of wood wax oil is strong, also can make wood moisture can send out. After painting the wood surface with varnish, because the resin film on the surface insulates the wood from the inside and outside, the air moisture from the outside cannot enter the wood, and the moisture inside the wood cannot be emitted, so the varnish is not suitable for working in the wet environment. The environment is very demanding.

Fourth, the difference between wood wax oil and varnish

After the wood surface is coated with wood wax oil, the wood has strong permeability, can breathe naturally, is not easy to crack, warps, has good elasticity, enhances hardness, has clear and natural texture, and is rich in color. And after painting varnish, wood surface forms a layer of resin film, can prevent moisture and waterproof.

Fifth, the difference between wood wax oil and varnish-environmental protection

Environmental protection is the biggest difference between wood wax oil and varnish. Wood wax oil raw materials and color do not contain chemical components, do not contain triphenyl, formaldehyde and heavy metals and other toxic ingredients, natural environmental protection, non-toxic harmless. The varnish contains benzene, aldehydes and other toxic substances, with an irritating smell.
