      Besides beeswax, paraffin wax, and carnauba wax, what other waxes are useful for bullet lube making?

      The reason I’m asking is where I work we have several different types of waxes that we use in the production of pvc and polymers. I just happened to walk by and glance at a pallet of bags that said rice bran wax and it got me wondering.

      I’ve also seen where rice bran wax has been used in the past instead of carnauba wax in cosmetics. I may need to give it a try.
