Oatey® MaxWax® Wax Bowl Ring with horn is a 100% pure petroleum wax gasket that is 40% thicker than standard rings for use when standard rings can not make a good seal. Provides a permanent seal impervious to vermin, odors, gases and acids. Oatey products have earned the trust of plumbing professionals for over 100 years.
Part #: 31188
Although stacking two wax seals on top of each other seems to be a common practice, Oatey does not recommend this application. We recommend using a jumbo or extra thick wax ring instead the stacking method. Also consider raising the flange height with one of our spacer kits.
What ingredients are in wax gaskets?
Oatey and Hercules wax seals are a blend of Slack Wax (unrefined feed stock) and Micro Crystalline Wax (refined feed stock). These are used to control the properties and result in a premium finished product.
How is a wax seal installed?
It is always important to first set the toilet bowl in place before installing the wax seal; this will confirm that the toilet bolts are aligned properly, and the floor can be checked for levelness in case the bowl will need to be shimmed during installation.
