It's a preservative wax that if applied as directed in very small amounts with a soft clean cloth will form a clear coat over most anything. I've had great success using it on zinc awards/badges as well as other misc. items I wanted to protect. In short, I'm a fan of Renaissance Wax.

Regards,
Stu

By the way, there are numerous past threads on this topic. A "search" will bring them up but here is one to get you going. It sums the topic up well.

I had an interesting experience where I had a m35 helmet where the green paint has turned dark brown over the years in places. I put some renwax to try and prevent this from happening on the whole helmet. Image my surprise when the brown started disappearing and green reappeared? Any one noticed something similar? J

I appreciate the wax very much, too.

Yes, I experienced something likely, too, Jaques, when using it. The soft rub with the wax has a cleaning effect as well. Therefore I always give a first rub for the dirt and a second one with the cloth staying clean. Q-tips are also very useful to clean the difficult parts with the wax.

I press thumbs that your drought in Capetown will soon end- I believe itīs no nice situation with rationed water.
