Renaissance™ wax polish was originally formulated in the British Museum research laboratories in the early 1950’s to develop a wax polish, for restoration and conservation of museum artefacts, that did not effect the collections over time.  The problem being that most natural waxes contained natural acids.

Renaissance wax polish is based entirely on synthetic materials – Micro-crystalline Paraffin Wax and Polyethylene Wax, which are colourless and do not yellow with ageing. It has a crystalline structure much finer than totally natural waxes, a property that confers a highly efficient moisture resistance.

When thinly applied and rubbed out to full lustre, the wax film is (and remains) glass-clear, with no discoloration either of the wax or the underlying surface. Renaissance wax is free from acids (pH neutral) and will not damage even sensitive materials.

On Wood items the wax delicately enhances grain or ‘flame’ patterns.  It protects existing finishes such as French polish and can also be applied directly to sanded, unfinished hardwoods without need of sealers. Waxing is the last process in hand-made furniture and in the creation of wood, stone or metal sculptures. But it is the first aspect to be appreciated by hand and eye. The clarity and lustre of Renaissance wax makes an instant visual appeal.

The silk-smooth touch of the matured wax film gives added pleasure, compared to the ‘drag’ of fingers leaving trails across the softer beeswax polishes.

No matter how often the wax is used there is no loss of clarity, so that fine surface detail is never obscured. Repeated use of the wax deepens the lustre, reflecting more light from surfaces and making them more ‘lively’ and it has now been adopted by museums, art collectors, antique dealers and enthusiasts across the world.
