Lignite wax is a scarce mineral, in 1897 Germany first began to extract wax from lignite, so it is also known as Montan Wax Abroad (WAX). It is a mineral wax containing wax, resin and ground bitumen. Also known as Mundan wax. A mixture of wax, resin, and ground bitumen extracted from waxy coal (mainly lignite or certain peat) and obtained by solvents (benzene, gasoline, etc.).


The properties of lignite wax mainly depend on raw materials, solvents used and extraction conditions. The amount of asphalt anywhere increases, and its color is from brown to black.


Lignite wax texture is relatively hard, high melting point, acid resistance, chemical stability, gloss, electrical insulation are good, easy to dissolve in organic solvents, can be mixed with petroleum wax, stearic acid and so on, and no carcinogenic effect, is an expensive natural movement, plant wax substitutes and supplements.
