Renaissance Wax for sale 65ml
« on: July 16, 2011, 06:20:33 PM »
I've been offered sole rights to sell this to the metal detecting community and shops. This post is to judge interest in the product and to take orders.

As most of you will know Renaissance wax is used to preserve finds and is considered by experts to be the best by far out there. Unlike other waxes - oils it contains no acids so preserves the coin artifact in its original condition.

I think I've done my maths correct and am selling them for £9.50 for a 65 ml tub.   To anyone on detecting Wales / Scotland , first 25 will be sold at £8.00 +p&p

Anyone interested let me know.

Product Details

Renaissance Wax

 
Renaissance wax polish was originally formulated in the British Museum research laboratories in the early 1950's, in response to a discussion amongst museum technicians at an international conference on fine-art conservation.

In accelerated ageing tests, the British Museum scientist 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 on national historic collections of furniture. He rejected them all and investigated the new so-called '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 many industries, from cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to heavy engineering. Thus, the waxes combined Nature's best qualities with the advantages of modern technology.

The blend which emerged from that research was 'designed' for long term protection of all classes of museum exhibits. At last museum technicians and others caring for important collections could use wax polish that neither caused future conservation problems nor detracted from the intrinsic values of their treasures.

Commercial production and distribution of the polish was ultimately undertaken in 1968 by the London-based company Picreator Enterprises Ltd. under its trade name 'Renaissance'. The product was quickly accepted in the international museum world and has become a universally respected standard conservation material - probably the most widely specified - because of its almost unlimited uses.

Rob, do you still have this for sale on E-bay ?, Ive just been on there and typed in "Renaissance 65ml"
as you suggested in an earlier post, but the only one coming up from the UK is from a seller named Busker54.

Is that you ?, or another person entirely ?  :D

Rob, payment sent, Ive sent you a PM too  :)

By the way Rob, the post above,  quoting my previous post, makes it look like its me providing a link to  an E-bay alternative.
I know that wasnt Borderreivers intention, its just the way the post has appeared on the page,  :)

The e-bay listing on the post has nothing to do with me   :D
