  Here are waxing tecniques that can be used in mostly any type of skiing:  1. Base conditioning
The preparation of new skis starts with Fibertex
treatment (T265), 8-10 passes in both directions
along the base. Polyethylene hairs and micro-burrs
are removed, and the base surface is “opened” for
better glide wax absorption.
NB! Only in the glide zones.
2. Hot wax Cleaning
Cleaning by hot-waxing and scraping using a soft
wax, removes dirt and saturates the base.
Recommended are warm temperature waxes such
as CH10, CH8 or BP99. The temperature of the
waxing iron should not exceed 120°C.
Note: No glide wax in the kick zone.
3. Ironing
Start at the tip moving the iron towards the tail in
a continuous movement to prevent overheating
of the base.
4. Groove scraping
While the wax is still warm, remove all wax out of
the groove and on the side-edges with the Scraper
(T87 or T88). Do this before scraping the base to
prevent scratches if the groove scraper unintentionally happens to jump out of the groove.
5. Base scraping
Scrape off the wax with a sharp Plexi Scraper
(T823) while the wax is still warm (wax-cleaning
method). Do not press too hard. Keeping the
scraper sharp means light strokes can be used to
remove the excess wax without harming the base.
T408 keeps the Plexi Scraper sharp.
6. Brushing
Use a Bronze Brush (T162) tip to tail 10-20 times.
Note: No brushing in the kick zone.
7. Finally, use a soft wax, such as CH8, to saturate
the base to prevent dry bases and to give optimal
glide. Repeat the process two times from Step 2
to 6, but let the skis cool to room temperature
(15 minutes), before Step 4, 5 – Scraping.
Skis having a new stone grind should be trated
also as from step 1 to 7
