Wax Dipping

Wax dipping of wooden Beehive components. The process is basically heating the blended paraffin and microcrystalline wax and submerging the wooden components for 10 minutes. The hot wax heats whatever moisture that is in the wood to steam and replaces it by soaking into the fibers. When the wax cools it remains a part of the wood forever.
