HUT PPP wax sticks: Durability on pens/pencils

HUT PPP wax sticks: Durability on pens/pencils

Post by Chuck Stege » Tue, 01 Dec 1998 04:00:00



   I bought the PPP wax sticks (satin and gloss) and tried them tonight.
I really like the look and I especially like the fact that there is no
drying time. I am still concerned about durability, however. By the very
nature of pens and pencils, they will get handled a lot. Does anyone
have any long term experience with the wax? How does it wear? Does the
satin "buff up" to a gloss? By this I mean, constant handing of the pen
turn a satin to a gloss? Does the wax wear down and thus affect the look
and finish of the pen?
   Thanks!

The finish from the Hut bars does not last. Instead, Get yourself a chunk of
98% pure carnauba wax, and try that...I've been using it for the last 4
months, and am very impressed with the look and strenth.
