It is normally added to milk up to a level of 0.024% to increase the calcium (Ca) content when making cheese. It can also be added to a brine bath for Gouda cheese up to a level of 0.2% to prevent sliminess of the cheese. It is packed in 25 litre cans or 1000 liter flo bins.
Bottling waxes are specially formulated from selected waxes, polymers and colourants.
The bottle is dipped into the molten wax and once removed it sets rapidly (or can be dipped in water) to give a smooth wax layer over the neck of the (wine) bottle.
Bottling wax has several functions including protection from cork and wine deterioration, preventing smells entering through the porous structure of the cork and prevents air and bacteria from entering the wine bottle leading to spoilage.
