SHOE POLISH DYES

A  range of dyes that can be used to colour wax and solvent based polishes. They can be blended together to get a variety of different shades.

Typical application levels would be 0.5-1.0%.

The  wax  provides  suppleness  to  the  leather  and  imparts  a  degree  of  water/oil resistance  with  the  colour  matched  to  the  wide  range  of  fashion  shades  for  the footwear market.
 
The  main  components  are  white  spirit  and  paraffin  wax  with  other  waxes  used  to generate  hardness,  texture,  ease  of  application  and  gloss  characteristics during buffing.
 
A typical shoe polish formulation would comprise:
 
Synthetic wax ester                10%
Paraffin wax                             15%
White spirit                               74%
Colour (dyes/pigments)          1%
 
Added covering power can be gained by the use of carbon black and this helps to produce a harder wax/paste.
 
Dyestuffs can be pre-dissolved in oleic acid to form the oleate salt of dyestuff.  This can make the dissolution of the dye within the solvent system easier.
 
Dyestuffs available for this application include:
 
Bestoil Orange Y                     (Solvent Orange 3)                 Tan polish
Bestoil Red BT                        (Solvent Red 24)                     Red polish / shading
Bestoil Black HB                      (Solvent Black 3)                    Black polish
Bestoil Black OB                     (Solvent Black 7)                    Black polish
Bestoil Yellow 3GP                 (Solvent Yellow 16)                 Bright Yellow polish / Shading
Bestoil Yellow DE                   (Solvent Yellow 56)                 Neutral Yellow polish / Shading
Bestoil Brown B                      (Solvent Red 3)                       Brown polish / shading
Bestoil Blue 2N                       (Solvent Blue 35)                    Blue polish / shading
 
These  wax-soluble  dyes  can  be  dissolved  in  the  molten  wax  for  “paste”  wax  shoe polish  while  water  based  wax  emulsion  creams  can  use  water  soluble  dyes  (e.g. Ebest Black AR3 / Acid Black 2).
