Wilmask Protecto Waxes within the 11429 series have been produced for over 50 years. They are widely used throughout many industry types and are approved and used by leading manufacturers within the aircraft industry.
Plating Industry: The demand for rapid plating and the need to reduce production times has highlighted the requirement for a masking method with fast application times, fast removal times, and a good mask, with no cracking or lift from the masked surface. Protecto waxes from Wilkins Campbell are approved and used by leading manufacturers within the aircraft industry.
Limitations of alternative masking methods:
Time-consuming - whether it be masking tapes or lacquers, a lot of time and effort is unnecessarily wasted in application and removal.
Hazardous Waste - Solvents are required in many cases for removal of laquers/adhesive residue, and can be expensive to dispose of.
Expensive - most other masking products can only be used once, and are an expensive outlay for many plating businesses.
The Wilkins Campbell / Darent Wax Solution Wilmask Protecto Waxes have been developed in our laboratory to perfectly match the needs of the modern plater. Wilmask Protecto Waxes set off virtually instantly and usually only two dips are required, meaning more time is spent on the actual plating process leading to a more economical workshop. Wilmask Protecto Waxes are removed very easily: peeled/carved off, melted above the heated tank, or just melted off in boiling water.
Wilmask Protecto Waxes are ideal for high-detail work and sharp edges. Our products are low cost AND re-useable (in most cases). Wilmask Protecto Waxes can be applied in a number of ways, and have been formulated so they don't crack or 'lift-off'.
Perfect masking every time.
