    Renaissance Wax is a high-quality blend of refined micro-crystalline waxes which remain neutral.  It is often used in antique restoration and museum conservation for preserving metal objects.  Often used to protect armor and weapons.

    Formulated by a renowned British conservation scientist, it effectively cleans and polishes all solid surfaces including metal, wood, marble, onyx, shell, stone, ivory, plastic, leather and even paper, neither staining nor discoloring. It has high moisture resistance, and can be used to protect paper book covers from finger prints and as a protective coating on photographs. Reduces gloss of picture varnish and prevents blooming. Also adds luster to water colors and other works on paper. 

    In accelerated aging tests, scientists at the British Museum found that all current commercial waxes based on the usual natural waxes (beeswax and carnauba wax) contained acids which, in time, could spoil original finishes. Renaissance wax is manufactured using new 'fossil' or microcrystalline waxes being refined out of crude oil. With their distinct characteristics depending on their geographical origins, the new 'man-made' waxes could be accurately blended to meet the needs of modern conservation. Thus, the waxes combined Nature's best qualities with the advantages of modern technology.

    Available in Small (65ml), Medium (200ml (7 fl oz)  or Large (3 liter (96 fl oz).
