Fluoro Powder Application
Applying Powder Overlays
- Sprinkle an even layer of powder overlay on the base.
- Spread it evenly with a cork (lightly).
- NOTE: A synthetic cork generates more heat than a natural cork and is better for working overlays.
- Plan to work in sections of the base, one area at a time, and use small amounts of powder (overloading leads to clumping).
- Work the powder into the base with a cork in stages. Increase the pressure in each stage.
- In the last stage, use sufficient pressure so as to generate heat.
- Use the horsehair brush lightly to work the overlay into the structure.
- Brush out excess fluoro:
- Use 10 firm strokes of the nylon brush to remove excess overlay.
- Use 10 firm strokes of the horsehair brush to remove excess overlay further.
- If you use the horsehair brush for overlays, depending on your level of competition it is recommended that you use it exclusively for this, and not use it for other purposes.
- Polish with a polishing cloth, 18 mm horsehair brush or felt block.
- Let the skis cool, then polish as needed with the cloth or felt block.
Corks and polishing cloths can be purchased here.
