Acorn Triple-Waxed Plastic Foundation Is The Leader in Plastic Foundation


  • HEAVY wax coating
  • High-quality plastic
  • Precision molded cells
  • Super-rigid non-warping technology


    Foundation is the template on which your bees build their honeycomb, and Acorn HEAVY-waxed plastic foundation is the best available. Acorn cells are deeper and more defined than the competition. They are coated with the most wax in the industry, so that your colonies can take to them quickly. What’s more, all Acorn Plastic Foundations have an optional breakaway communication hole to enable easy movement among the frames. At checkout, you can choose between two colors, two sizes, and three wax depths.

    This foundation goes great with any of our super kits. We also recommend using this foundation with Acorn’s HEAVY waxed plastic frames for best results.

    My bees love these

    I have Russian honey bees and they like the acorn frames better than any other.

    Heavy wax not so heavy.

    The heavy waxed foundations I ordered didn't seem to have much more, if any more, wax than other regular foundations I've purchased. I was trying to avoid having to wax them myself, but I'll have to do it anyway.

    Haven't used in a hive yet. It was easy to install in frames. The white foundation had more wax on them, than the black foundation.

    Really impressed

    Frames are well built. Attracts bees much better than other wax coated plastic frames. Plus being dark color makes it easier to spot newly laid eggs for grafting or just checking on queen. If you added up cost of bare frames, plastic foundation and time spent putting them together would be nearly same price as buying these frames already assembled and waxed.
