Microcrystalline wax as the name implies is characterised by the fineness of its crystal structure. It is a very durable water resistant finish that is easy to apply and polishes to a high shine. Resistance to finger marks makes it a good choice for finishing products that are likely to be handled, such as wooden pens or handles. Also suitable as a finish for fine furniture and many other wooden projects, this clear wax is best applied over a sanding sealer or previously finished surface. 225ml tin.
N.B. This wax has good resistance to heat and moisture but has not been tested for ph neutrality and the like for use on valuable items needing a high level of protection with the certainty that the wax will not affect the substrate. (Some waxes are used on paintings etc and this wax has not been formulated for that use).

I like this.Nice wax, easy to apply and buffs to a nice "soft gloss" finish. Apply, wait 20 minutes and buff to a shine. Can apply more than one coat. Reasonably hard wearing although I would not recommend as a finish for pen turning. Repeated handling, inevitable with a pen, eventually degrades finish.

No good if any water contact.Good , except the slightest water contact leaves a white mark that cannot be easily removed.

julieMicrocystalline is also known as Renaissance wax and is used by the British Museum. A finer wax that buffs easily to produce a shine. It can also be used on other materials, eg marble, leather and metals.
