Maintenance Wax, for the upkeep of From The Anvil Door Furniture in the Beeswax Finish.
The beeswax finish is the most authentic finish for steel and to preserve the colours and the texture from the forge, hammer and anvil, we apply pure beeswax; this gives a subtle, matt richness to the metal and offers excellent protection when products are fitted internally and properly maintained.
Inevitably when two areas of metal come into contact with each other an abrasive action is enacted, and sooner or later the wax surfaces are lost by the constant rubbing action.
This is unavoidable during the operational activity of the article, so where obvious abrasive areas of moving parts are visible, an occasional oiling is recommended.
The use of Maintenance Wax will restore the finish and afford protection.
When choosing the Beeswax finish, sometimes because of temperature changes and packaging conditions, your product might have signs of a slight white bloom on opening.
We recommend you buff it with a soft cloth, this will restore the finish to it’s intended glory.
When fitted in damp bathrooms or wet properties, mild steel or malleable iron, which are the two materials forged by From the Anvil have the potential to exhibit surface rust. If surface rust does occur, rub with 00 grade wire wool and apply maintenance wax with a rag or brush.
The Maintenance Wax will restore the finish and afford protection.
Please note: The maintenance wax is supplied with a breather hole in the lid of the tin. This is to prevent excess pressure from building up inside the tin as the wax is an organic compound. The breather hole is supplied to prevent the lids popping off over time, and will not affect the lifespan of the wax.
Supplied in SINGLES in a pop-top tin.
