Chinese insect wax (insect wax, animal wax, ... Materials (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Fairly hard, yellowish-white wax composed primarily of ceryl cerotate and other esters, excreted by the louse-like scale insects of the genus Ceroplastes found in China, Japan, and India. The insects deposit their wax onto the leaves and twigs of Chinese ash trees; it is scraped off, cleaned with hot water, and cast into molds. It is similar to spermaceti and has been used as a substitute for beeswax, for candles, wax paint, polishing leather, and sizing paper.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 質地頗硬之黃白色蠟,主要由分布於中國、日本、印度的虱子狀蠟蚧屬介殼蟲所分泌之蠟酸蠟酯與其他酯類所構成,這類昆蟲會將所分泌之蠟堆積在中國白蠟樹的葉片與嫩枝上,將蠟刮下並以熱水清潔之後,即可置入模具中塑製。中國蟲蠟與鯨蠟類似,也用來替代蜂蠟、製作蠟燭,並用於蠟畫繪製、皮革拋光以及紙面上膠。 
Dutch ..... Een vrij harde, gelig-witte was gemaakt door insecten die door mensen worden gekweekt; wordt gebruikt voor algemene doeleinden en als een vervanger voor bijenwas. 
Spanish ..... Cera blanca amarillenta bastante dura producida por insectos cultivados por el hombre. Se utiliza para propósitos generales y como sustituto de la cera de abejas.
