The Reality of Liquid Waxes
Liquid waxes are safe, fast & effective, however, a few proper steps need to be taken for the wax to be accepted into the base and create durability. We recommend researching the wax you choose thoroughly. For both the Vauhti and Toko liquid waxes we carry it is recommended to clean the ski with a couple passes of a copper or fine steel brush to open up and clean the dirt off the base. Use a little Swix fiberlene or Toko basetex paper to then pick up the dirt you brushed up. It is highly recommended to melt a layer of hot wax into the base as a base layer for the liquid to adhere to and create durability. Choose a wide range wax appropriate to the snow you train on. Let cool. Scrape and brush thoroughly. Apply the liquid wax of choice. The longer you leave it on the better it adheres to the base. Vauhti wax requires a hard nylon brush to brush out the wax. Toko requires a soft nylon brush to brush out the wax.
