What is Montan wax?

So, first things first – what is Montan wax? This wax is derived from coal that is rich in bitumen, which you may know as lignite. In its crude form it is dark, hard, and very brittle.

The majority of the world’s Montan wax comes from Germany, where production was first established on a large, commercial scale. Some wax is produced elsewhere – California, for example, is the only source of montan wax in the USA. We source ours from Germany, meaning that it won’t have travelled from the other side of the world by the time it makes it to you. This lower carbon footprint has made it very attractive to our customers, and Montan wax has quickly become one of the most popular waxes that we sell.
