3)The color of Chinese wax is easy to turn yellow while it is under UV rays.
4)Our penetration is between 12-16, our material is hard, but Chinese material is soft.
5)Chinese wax with odour which could be smelled, but ours is odourless.
6)Our product is treated by hydrogen cracking. Only a few countries, such as Germany, Canada and Taiwan can produce such quality.
