Samples of Sticky Wax provided by Benchmark Catalog were tested with the Oddy Test protocol. The material was evaluated visually and received a "pass", as the silver, copper, and lead coupons had no corrosion in comparison to the control coupons. A-D strips also had no reaction to the material.
The conclusion from these tests is that the material - Benchmark's Sticky Wax ( 09-100 ) is safe to use in contact with art objects or in packing and display.
*Reminder: All waxes are capable of leaving stains if left on an object for a long time. Limited use is better. Conservators recommend a barrier layer of B-72.
