This is a high quality thicker than normal product, allows for easy extraction with little chance of collapse.

Our beeswax coated plastic foundation will stand up to season after season, extraction after extraction. The deeper cells feature textured interiors and sharper cell edges that encourage quicker acceptance.

Tip:- we use this at the end of the season when feeding to overwinter, we place a second brood box above the brood area and feed heavily,. The bees will draw the plastic out for winter stores, in the spring we usually find that the bees have moved into the top box allowing us to take away the bottom box for cleaning.

Size 335 x 200mm

It is recommended that this product is used in every frame location, if given the choice bees will brace against pure wax foundation.

Tip, after two seasons use a wide scrapper our ( HD-615 ) to clean the plastic foundation back to the rib, then place the box and frames back on the hive above a crown board with just one hole in the crown board open. The bees will usually clean the residue from the plastic frames leaving the plastic foundation ready to use.

If you think the frames need to be cleaned more thoroughly this can be done with either a small steam cleaner or by soaking in soda and bleach.

The plastic foundation can also be melted out at low temperature provided it is left in the frame, use some caution when using heat on the plastic foundation..

 Once cleaned re coat with wax using a small sponge roller .
