Hard Rubber Imprint Preservation

Is there anything that can be done to hard rubber to protect it from more wear than it has already experienced but won't harm the rubber over time? I just happened to think of this while having difficulty making out a couple areas of imprint on the butt of a hard rubber pen. I am very careful with my pens and it is not like I will be rubbing the area but would like to see if something can be done to protect it.

museum wax is a popular tool used by some pen restorers and may be helpful in preserving the imprint. but museum wax also creates some problems. the wax acts as a protective barrier and will protect the pens from moisture and to some extent damage from light and minor scuffing. the downside is that it is not reversible and dust will over time imbed into the wax.
