    Default someone should manufacture plasticell type foundation, with super thick wax coating.

    Machines are more productive than hand coat/recoat.

    The problem with thick coats is they crack and flake off.

    We buy unwaxed and do it ourselves. unwaxed is cheaper and weighs less so shipping is less.

    We also know where the wax comes from.

    There a some threads here, with a lot of detial about roller or brush etc.
    Click search and try some phrases , like recoat wax foundation.
    I just brush it on, pretty heavy coat.
    I ran a side by side test, found the recoated was drawn out faster, but may not be good advice for every one,

    Broke T, do you have to coat the whole frame when buying the unwaxed version, or just roll it on as described in the many threads on here.
