Beeswax Foundation – Manuka Special 3/4 Depth 157
This listing is for twenty sheets. $2.60 +GST per sheet.
Sheet Size: 422 x 157mm
Manuka Special is the thickest wax foundation you can buy.
It is very strong but also the bees will use some of the base material to build the cell walls instead of making the wax themselves.
In a hurry for the bees to draw out the wax cells? Then this is the foundation for you.
This thick foundation greatly reduces the amount of honey consumed in wax manufacture so means there will be more honey available for harvest. Bees need to consume a minimum of 7 grams of honey to produce 1 gram of beeswax.
All of the beeswax used for this comb foundation is first heated to approximately 110 degrees Celsius before being micro filtered to remove all dross and moisture. This ensures that when you buy our comb foundation, you are only paying for pure beeswax.
The filtered liquid beeswax then passes to the “Weed Process” sheeting machine. This converts the beeswax from a liquid state into a continuous flat sheet and is one of the secrets of making high quality comb foundation. During this process, the beeswax gains greatly in elasticity and strength to the point where a piece of cold comb foundation can be scrunched up and then flattened out again without breaking.
The rolls of sheet then pass to the automatic milling machine. The pure beeswax sheet passes between two precision engraved rollers which imprint the pattern onto the beeswax. The continuous sheet is then cut to size.
Throughout the process, stringent quality control checks are continuously carried out. The life of our Comb Foundation is indefinite if stored in proper packaging and in dry conditions. Because of its purity, it is not attacked by wax moths.
