Renaissance Wax is a high-quality blend of refined microcrystalline waxes which remain neutral. Formulated by a renowned 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 such as beeswax or carnauba wax contained acids which, in time, could spoil original finishes. Renaissance wax is manufactured using '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.
