Extruded bases don't really need to be waxed and don't hold much wax when they are.

Sintered basespreform noticably better when waxed and are designed to hold wax. Sintered bases can burn from friction impairing their ability to hold wax and transfer wax to the surface. A dry sintered base is more susceptable to damage and can crack especially if die-cut
