Imagine a fresh snow crystal. It has a lot of pointy edges - some of which look like frozen daggers. These sharp icy points act as daggers would against your ski base. They cut at the base structure, cause microscopic gouges, pull up hairs from the base, and cause a lot of friction - the enemy of speed. The Boron Nitride in this base wax creates a hexagonal molecular structure that acts as a hardener for new snow. It's like ironing in little hexagonal shields into your ski base to protect it from the sharp points of the ice-cold snow crystals.
- This is a base wax. Mix with an 2-4 parts LF or HF wax of the day and BN_BLOCK with an iron. Or, iron and scrap a layer of BN_BLOCK and cover with LF or HF wax and toppers of the day.
- Layers of hexagonal Boron Nitride form a hard, durable layer of protection against the sharp edges of new-snow crystals.
- Packaging may indicate a minimum temperature of -12C, but is very effective to temperatures below -20C.
