Dop Wax
SKU:
Green Dop Wax is our most popular wax for dopping cabochons. Melts at 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This specially formulated low temperature wax is ideally suited for heat sensitive stones such as Opals and Turquoise. Black Dop Wax is a wax with a higher melting temperature than the green dop wax. Recommended for use when greater holding strength is required. Stones have a lesser tendency to move or shift with this wax. Useful during grinding and polishing operations where increased pressure and heat may cause movement of the stone. Melts at 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Packaged in one pound boxes with 4 sticks per box.
