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.
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 .
- Requires no reinforcement
- Impervious to wax moth damage
- Food grade plastic
- Use year after year with proper care

Very pleased with these frames. Seem very sturdy and well made. Hopefully the bees will take to them well.
Have tried these before with great results. Well made. Should last for years. Bees seem to really like these. Good Evan patten.
I purchased my frames to set up a new hive, and I was very pleased with your prompt service and reasonable prices. I will definitely order more equipment from you.
These are pretty good quality frames and they were put together well and arrived in good condition... If these were a little cheaper then I would never make my own again.... I'm thinking £25 Inc Vat and I would be sold on these! Maybe with a £50 FREE delivery Minimum spend...
good quality easier than self-wiring good value
