We had a customer ask a question recently: “What is a two-pour wax?” We have been asked this question a lot, therefore, we wanted to share the answer with everyone.
A two-pour wax, which is also known as a double pour wax, is a wax that expands when melted and contracts when cooled. This alteration causes the wax to sink and, thus, requires a second pour to create a smooth, even finish. Multi-pour waxes (waxes requiring more than two pours) react in the same way.
A one-pour wax is completely different. Under optimal circumstances, a one-pour (or single pour) wax is a wax that only needs to be poured one time for a great finished look. These waxes were invented for incredibly minimal shrinkage.
