Renaissance Micro-Crystalline Wax: 7 oz / 200 ml
Renaissance Wax® is a micro-crystalline wax developed by the British Museum in the 1950s to replace wax polishes based on beeswax or carnauba that contained acids or became acidic over time. Because of the way it is refined, microcrystalline wax is acid-neutral and does not change color with age.
Micro-crystalline wax is a petroleum based wax, characterized by the fineness of its crystalline structure as compared to other wax structure such as paraffin, carnauba, and beeswax. This smaller crystalline structure causes micro-crystalline wax to be harder, more elastic, have a higher melting point, and have better adhesive characteristics than other waxes.
Rob loves and recommend Renaissance Wax as a wood finish and for general purpose use as a wax. A little goes a long way.
