This event is no longer available for registration.


The term wax is generally applied to all wax-like solids and liquids found in nature, and to those that occur in waxes, such as the hydrocarbons, acids, alcohols and esters, irrespectible of their source or method of preparation.

The British Wax Refining Company Ltd was founded in 1914 by Sidney Case-Green, for the purpose of bleaching and refining waxes. The company has a long tradition of refining and processing natural waxes.

End uses include, Cosmetics and Beauty, Art and Crafts, Polishes, Candles, Food manufacture and storage, Casting, Moulding , Figure Making and Special Effects and more.

Now run by Sidney's great grandchildren, the business is in greater shape than ever. Dr Stephen Case-Green joined the family business in 1999 and will talk of the four generations of experience and knowledge of these materials.
