Your ski's base must remain porous to allow glide wax to penetrate. Overheating with an iron permanently seals pores, preventing wax absorption. Even a careful waxer will need to stonegrind skis as the base will naturally close up over time from application of cold waxes and fluorocarbons.

HF stands for High Fluorocarbon. There are 5 main waxes in this category, which are fluorinated hydrocarbon blends having a high percentage of a low-melt point fluorocarbon additive— a result of Cera F technology. The waxes are unique because they provide fast acceleration, effective in a wide range of temperatures, and are durable and dirt resistant. HF waxes are excellent when used alone, but ideal when used in combination with Cera F as an over layer. Conditions of high humidity are optimal for HF waxes.

LF stands for Low Fluorocarbon. These are fluorinated hydrocarbon waxes having a low percentage of low-melt point fluoro additive. They are used as training waxes, or as racing waxes with Cera F as a final layer, or alone as a race wax at very low temperatures. The temperature ranges and wax colors of the LF waxes coincide with the HF category, however they are distinguished from the HF waxes by the 60 gram or 180 gram bar size. The LF waxes can be distinguished from the CH waxes by a slightly more transparent look.

CH stands for Hydrocarbon. This category has no fluorocarbon material in the blends. They are 100% high performance hydrocarbon paraffins. Although they can be looked upon as an economical racing wax group, the colder waxes perform very well alone, and the warmer waxes make an acceptable base layer for Cera F. Their colors and temperature ranges coincide with the HF and LF Waxes. The CH waxes can be distinguished from the LF waxes by their darker shade of color. Available CH3—CH12

HFBW Black Wolf is a result of years of intensive research to improve our gliding products and fully substitute the BD-line. The waxes have provided excellent results in the World Cup. The Black Wolf series strength is it’s performance on artificial snow, transformed snow and dirty snow and also at cold conditions when the dry frictional phenomena is relatively high. This patented additive gives lower frictional coefficient to the waxes than the BD-additive.

Rex Blue –1°C to –10°C Rex Blue has a reputation of being the best nonfluorinated glide wax ever made. On rather dry snow –5° to –8°C (23F to 17F) it outperforms even many fluorinated glide waxes, Blue Rex easily creates a shiny finish which provides a great base for actual racing wax.

Use of the Swix Fluor Glide Wax Cleaner will increase wax absorption of future wax applied to ski.

Experience, so far, shows that the Swix Zero Spray works well down to -2°C on new or falling snow, in certain by high air humidity and when the precipitation is mixed with super cooled water droplets. It also functions well on wet snow as long as it does not contain too many coarse grained particles.
