Manuka Special beeswax foundation is the thickest grade you can get. The bees will often draw it out quicker because they can use some of the wax provided to build the cells. This allows them to store more honey instead of having to use it to make the wax.
Manuka honey is thixotropic so is harder to extract. The Manuka Special wax foundation is stronger than the other grades to help to withstand the rigours of honey extraction.
