Sale of Wax 213

A clear, odorless, and insecticidal wax for treating and maintaining leather bindings, marketed under license from CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research).

Developed by the Centre de recherche sur la conservation des collections (CRCC), a laboratory of CNRS, Wax 213 is manufactured under license and marketed by the Bibliothèque nationale de France. It is especially recommended for the care of leather bounds in good condition.

Please notice that Wax 213 cannot be used to treat highly damaged leathers such as abraded, brittle or pulverulent leathers.
