Paraffin Wax is used to preserve wooden hiveware. A hive that has been paraffin dipped is expected to last up to 20 years. Woodware is submerged in molten wax for at least 10 minutes to allow the wax to soak deep into the wood. For the treatment to be effective the wax needs to be between 130C and 180C.
The specific gravity (at sea level) of paraffin is .76, i.e. if you had a 260L tank to dip your boxes, you would need 198kg of paraffin to fill your tank. For example: 260L x .76 = 198kg. 1kg will cover approx. 4-5 boxes.
