All of our wax foundation is 100% Australian beeswax and milled here at Beekeeping Supplies Australia.
This foundation fits Ideal Frames only.
Our foundation sheets are between 36-38 grams per sheet and approximately 27 sheets to the kilogram.
Cartons contain 4KG of wax foundation.
Foundation wax sheets are used in beekeeping to help give the bees a boost and head start in production.
Sheets are moulded in a hexagon pattern and embedded into the frame to prevent breakage, as well as keeping the sheet secure.
This then provides a surface for the bees to start building from, they then can begin producing honey or brood.
EMBEDDING WAX TO FRAME:
Use an embedding tool that is heated.
Run tool across the wire to heat.
The wire should then melt the wax onto the wire.
Do this to all wires on frame.
The wax has now been embedded onto the frame.
STOARGE AND CARE:

Over 30⁰C this product can become very soft and pliable.

Here at Beekeeping Supplies Australia we are always looking to purchase 100% Australian pure beeswax from hobbyists or commercial beekeepers. Please ensure the wax is clean as possible and a golden colour. We do not take Brood comb or brown wax.
We buy wax for $16.00/kg + GST ($17.60)
We trade wax for foundation sheets weight to weight and only pay $0.61 per sheet for milling.
We do not mill wax per order. We will automatically swap from what is available from the shelf that day.
This is by far the cheapest and best way to purchase wax sheets.
If you have wax that you aren’t sure what to do with or looking to trade it in, please contact us via phone or email. We can give you a quote on what is suited to your needs.
In order to keep our foundation safe on transport, Each pack is wrapped in bubble wrap and cardboard for maximum protection. We also place FRAGILE tape on boxes so delivery drivers know to be careful with your parcel.
