Warm Temperature Hydrocarbon Wax, 150 g
- for base cleaning/conditioning and/or non-racing applications.
- Use the hot-wax-scrape method for cleaning/conditioning.
Red/Warm wax for use above 25 F (-4 C).
Racers should never use chemical or citrus base cleaners on your skis or boards! It will slow them down.
Use the hot-scrape method to completely clean the base of old wax before you add new wax. The idea is to use warm/liquefied wax to "wash out" the dirt and old wax.
- Choose an inexpensive soft wax, the red (warm) hydrocarbon made here is ideal for this.
- Drip on a coat of wax
- Work tip to tail.
- You want a warmer iron for this step so and scrape it off while it is still liquid. You should have a 8-12 inch trail of liquid wax behind the iron without overheating the base.
- You can monitor the temperature by touching the top of the ski (which is now under the base); keep in mind that the thermal properties of skis (how well heat passes through from base to top) differs from ski-to-ski because the layers may have different thicknesses or materials.
- Repeat waxing/scraping until the wax is clean.
- Select a wax for the final wax/scrape that is closer to the temperature of your race wax; select a warm or cold version.
- After your last scraping, brush tip to tail with a brass brush; the wax can be warm for this step.
