What wax to use on our grips and handguards to bring out the color

Hello folks,

People ask me why the color of our grips and handguards fades with age and that is a function of the thin liquid oil/wax finish I put on them. When I make a grip or handguard, it comes out a mold and then I need to sand it to get rid of seams. From there I blast it and just about any color winds up turning very white. To bring back the color, a top coat needs to be applied. I used to use Sno Seal, which works fantastic but after several thousand grips, it was too tough on my hands to work so I had to move to a liquid oil/wax finish that dries out over time.  I would definitely recommend that you folks use Atsko Sno Seal if ou want the color to come out and stay out plus it does a great job on sealing boots 🙂

Atsko Sno-Seal Original Beeswax Waterproofing Leather Protector, 7 oz (Sports)

Sno-Seal Original Beeswax Waterproofing protects leather from rain, sun, snow, and salt. Sno-Seal is also great for waxed cotton and tent seams. The beeswax formula dries to a solid wax that “stays put” in the surface of the leather so it lasts longer. Our competitors’ greases, oil, and animal products are able to migrate through the leather till they clog all the pores. These waterproofing products fill the natural spaces that are supposed to absorb perspiration and insulate. In addition, animal fats weaken and rot leather. The tannery worked hard to remove the fats and preserve the leather, so it’s hard to imagine why you’d put it back on. Sno-Seal will help you feel more comfortable in Gore-Tex fabric lined boots because it allows the Gore-Tex absorbed perspiration to escape out of the leather. Not only will Sno-Seal keep you warm and dry, it will also help you from getting tired. A typical leather boot can soak up to a pound of water. That means you lift an additional 2,212 lbs. to walk one mile. Sno-Seal keeps the whole boot dry, warm and light.
