Our Crimp Wire Foundation is made form 100% Pure Beeswax. It has 9 Steel Vertical Wires that radiate strength throughout the entire sheet. If you need additional strength you can add cross wires horizontally. Support pins can also be used. Foundation has deep cell walls and strong steel wires. This foundation snaps into 6 1/4" frames with a GROOVED TOP AND A GROOVED BOTTOM BAR.
Fresh beeswax absorbs toxins in your hive...it is a good idea to change our your comb every few years to keep your hives healthy
Please Note: We are constantly rotating our wax foundation to ensure you get the best quality and the freshest wax. We think this is important. As a result we cannot accept any returns on foundation beyond 30 days.
I dont cross wire these at all. I use an electric Maxant 3100 extractor and start slow, speeding up gently. The foundation does not warp this way even without the wires. Foundation pops in and out of the grooved frames and my all 8 frame Garden Hives are beautiful and functional. My beekeeper club Fort Bend County Beekeepers, Texas included my yard on the annual tour and I got rave reviews even from longtime vetern beekeepers.

easy easy to use. I still put my crosswires in though. but no tacking down the hooks. I havent used them for extraction. But they are holding up nicely in a crowded brood box.
