Renaissance Wax was originally formulated in the British Museum in the early 1950’s.
Its crystalline structure is different from other waxes, making it much finer than totally natural waxes, providing a highly efficient moisture resistance. Apply thinly and rub out to full lustre. The wax film is (and remains) glass-clear, with no discolouration either of the wax or the underlying surface. Renaissance Wax guards against damaging effects of humidity, heat, dust, aging and ordinary wear. It creates a barrier against fingerprints and the devastation of water, wine, alcohol and other spills. With its high moisture resistance, it forms a durable, lustrous protective coating, therefore preventing tarnish, corrosion and bloom. The wax remains completely waterproof, and so retards weathering on exteriors and objects exposed to climatic abrasion.
Renaissance Wax is safe to protect : wood (raw & finished), leather, parchment & paper, photographic prints. Metal : Silver, Silverplate, Gold, Copper & Copper Alloys (Bronze, Brass, Tin, Zinc, Nickel) Lead & Pewter, Iron & Iron Alloys, Tin, Stone, Marble, Bone, Ivory, Mother of Pearl and much more.
