For successful waxing you need to ensure the following things:
- The necessary equipment
- A brush
- A plexi scraper
- An old iron for lack of a true waxing iron
Waxing the basic principle
Waxing is a particularly vast and complicated subject. This ranges from simple to the most basic waxing cold (disreputable) until ski man pro will take the snow temperature and humidity to use one or more waxes as a base adapted to the conditions and then drop a fart highly fluorinated surface to 100 € the few grams!
As part of the ski touring, waxing will not serve to add tenths of a second descent (as in the competition in alpine skiing and cross country), but to uphold its sole and avoid the hassles of non-ski waxed we all know: ice that forms on the sole, no slipping, adhesive deposition skins .
So this is the hot waxing which is clearly necessary in our case, because it is the only technique that will allow to expand the ski sole polyethylene for durable impregnation depth.
The cold waxing, through impregnated wipe, stick or liquid, will contain a very limited interest and will not bring anything good. The marketing aspect of this kind of product should we forget.
What fart use?
So, in this range of products bloated, which one to choose?
In fact, we will decide a fart as a solid cake, usually sold in plastic blister. Whatever the brand (Toko Swix, Briko, Vola …), we note that any solid waxes are alike.
Those that interest us for our servicing (we do not include pure performance), waxes are hydrocarbon type without attendance of fluorine.
So you will see that in each brand, there is often a white or colorless universal fart, and a range of 4 or 5 references colored (blue, purple, yellow, orange …). These colors equal the hardness of the wax whose use will be determined by the type of snow met (hard for old or cold snow, soft snow to wet spring). The manufacturers truly use the outside air temperature as indication for the use of a particular wax.
