A question came up about using a block of beeswax to coat a metal part on our machinery as an anti-corrosion measure. The machines can go anywhere in North America, and Latin America.Generally I recommend NSF approved maintenance chemicals to be safe.
It's confusing because beeswax can be a food ingredient and is used in cosmetics as well. Can this be used so long that there is an MSDS? Maybe even a Certificate of Analysis?
My other concern is if a customer uses beeswax they must ensure it is stored in the maintenance area, and labeled such that it never gets mixed up with regular food ingredients.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
