Seller: uk*merchant (8,055) 100%, Location: Pontefract, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 264326099758 Pre-lim surface cleaner Pre-Lim 200ml cans A gently abrasive paste for non-scratch cleaning of metals and many sensitive fine-art surfaces. Pre-lim is widely used in the professional restoration of arms and armour, sculpture, brass and copper exhibition cookware, ceramics and automobile paintwork. Formulation is based on blended Neuburg silica chalks in a water/white spirit emulsion. In normal use the product is not a health hazard. Pre-lim's cleaning/burnishing action is achieved with extremely fine control using a soft rag and light pressure. After a few minutes of air-drying, the residual chalky deposit is easily rubbed away with a clean rag, leaving surfaces dry and silk-smooth. To ensure that cleaned surfaces, especially metals, remain clean and bright, protect them with our glass-clear Renaissance micro-crystalline wax polish for a long-lasting and visually-enhancing finish. When stored in its air-tight container at room temperature or colder, Pre-lim has an excellent shelf life. As is customary in professional restoration, a discreet test is advised to ensure that Pre-lim is suitable for specific projects.----------------------------------------- Renaissance wax polish - 200ml size can"THE PERFECT WAX” Picreator’s Renaissance Micro Crystalline Wax is the First choice of many museums and professionals Antique specialists worldwide.

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.
