Renaissance Microcrystalline Wax Polish was originally designed for restoration professionals and long term protection of museum exhibits, but its microcrystalline structure, which gives it a very high resistance against moisture and corrosion, its neutral pH which does not damage ancient finishes, along with its amazing versatility on wood, marble, leather, firearms, weapons and armors, statues and monuments, auto body, steel, brass and copper tools, ancient photographs, etc. make it an extremely interesting product for numerous applications.

Applied in thin coats and rubbed to full lustre, Renaissance Wax is (and remains) glass-clear, with no discoloration either of the wax or the underlying surface.

On furniture and woodwork, Renaissance wax enhances the wood grain and the finest details. 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.

Renaissance wax will protect existing finishes such as French polish, but it can also be directly applied on sanded, unfinished hardwoods without need of sealers. Stringed instrument makers will also appreciate Renaissance wax when applied to violins, guitars and contrabass, as it will protect their varnish, which is sensitive to natural acidity present on the skin.

Applied correctly - in thin coats - Renaissance wax is extremely economical in use, so that its initial cost compares very favourably with ordinary commercial waxes.

How to use

Apply a thin coat of wax on the surface, and polish it with a clean rag to obtain a lustre. If the surface is not flat, a polishing brush can be used. Multiple coats can be applied to improve the depth and warmth of the lustre.

Renaissance Wax

Ross Jordaan · May 20, 2019

I am a collecter/ sportsman and hunter who
needed a product to protect, shine and enhance the finish of my firearms and collectibles.
After doing some research and reading I decided to use this product. After ordering it from the folks at Ardec I received a tracking number right there and then, and received it the next week neatly packaged. The pricing is amongst the best in Canada and the service is excellent.
I can highly recomend Ardec.

Great

I use this wax to top off a french polish on fine musical instruments. Smooth as silk, clear as a forest stream, easy to rebuff, and one container lasts forever you need so little...

good product

I don’t have issues with the wax polish. What I do not appreciate is being charged $20 for shipping a 65 gram container that could have been shipped in a padded envelope for much less money.

Hi, we appreciate your feedback.

We would really like to offer cheaper shipping fees. Shipping to British Columbia from Quebec is expensive. Even if the 65 ml container of Renaissance Wax is really, really small, we cannot ship it in a padded envelope via the Lettermail service of Canada Post to save on shipping because the envelope would exceed the maximum thickness limit of 20 mm (0.8 in.). Also, it is not possible to track a parcel sent with the Lettermail service, we would have no way to know if the parcel is delivered or not, also if the parcel would get lost we would have no way to find it back.
