Wax dip supers?

595 0
I know it would be expensive to get it started but I have a friend that could build me a tank big enough to wax dip my supers.
Just wanted to know how the supers hold up compared to painting. I got to thinking about it this year after repairing and repainting sever supers because of the damage from the hive tool at the corners. I would think that the wax would penetrate deep into the wood and would be better than paint.
Any input would be appreciated.
