More About Renaissance Wax

Renaissance wax was first developed in the early 1950s in the British Museum research laboratories, specifically for the conservation and protection of exhibits where traditional waxes contained acids which could spoil antique furniture and works of art. It has gone on to become one of the most popular conservation wax polishes and is widely used in museums, art galleries and stately homes. It has a micro crystalline structure much finer than totally natural waxes, a quality that is highly efficient for moisture resistance. When applied thinly and rubbed out to a full lustre, the wax film is glass clear, and it remains clear, with no discolouration of the wax or the underlying surface.

 

Note: If the lid is loose or left off, product may gets dry, cracks,etc.. A quick fix.... just add a drop at the time of 'pure unscented mineral spirits', work it into the wax and it will bring it back to life.

This listing is for 1 tin.
