Subject: Microcrystalline wax

Microcrystalline wax

From: Yangsook Choe <ysc>

I am working as a metal conservator, mainly in conservation of
archaeological metals. I have been using microcrystalline wax as a
protective coating on treated metals. In order to a condition of
individual artefacts, sometimes I use a container to put artefacts
in hot melted wax and sometimes I use hot air to apply a coating
layer of wax on the artefacts. The reason I bring this subject up is
that I would like to hear your experiences and to discuss, for
example, about a best temperature for the best results and how you
applying it and why?, etc. I am also interested in any tips for
books and articles about this subject.
