Impera Italia’s Advice™
This is the that wax creates a thick film and is the ideal component of a protective system for wet rooms, shower cubicles or steam rooms, but please be aware it does not make the surface waterproof on its own! You can also use this wax for floors or any surface where a more lasting protective coating is required. Please be careful when you apply this wax on textured plasters as it can cause discolouring when you don’t spread it properly or use too much.
Folk etymology proposes that sincere is derived from the Latin sine = without and cera = wax, as sculptures without wax repairs or additions were ‘honest’.
A: It can be applied with a trowel, cloth or sponge; it can also be melted. Application by trowel is the preferred method when protecting smooth surfaces, the other methods are suitable for any surface.
