Spanish term or phrase: cera carnauba
CERA CARNAUBA
La carnauba es una cera vegetal obtenida de las hojas de la palmera
CARNAUBA. Esta cera no reacciona con ninguna pintura utilizada en
carrocerías de automóviles. Provee a la superficie tratada una dura
capa protectora de los agentes contaminantes como residuos de lluvia ácida,
emisión de convertidores catalíticos, marcas de insectos, barros,
alquitrán, brea, etc. La Carnauba sella los microporos de la pintura que quedan
expuestos a la acción del agua, evitando que la refracción de los rayos
U.V. e infrarrojos oxiden y opaquen la pintura.

English translation:carnauba wax
Explanation:
A brazilian hard wax harvested from a palm tree of the same name and so carnauba doesn´t translate as far as I know, for that same reason.
