Features
  1. Isopropyl alcohol solvent is much safer and environmentally sound when compared to liquid waxes from other companies.
  2. Fastest drying liquid for quicker application. Dries in 2 minutes
  3. Liquid can be ironed in after a 2 minute dry-time for increased durability.
  4. Finishing with roto wool seems to provide the best results on average, but corking, felting or nylon brushing to finish also has good results.

Application Methods

Safety Warning!

In the application process of some ski wax products, you and others can ba exposed to dangerous dust, fumes or residues. With the correct safety protolcols in place, these risks can be mitiagted and waxing can be very safe.

Safe Waxing protolcol:

  1. Always wax in a well-ventilated area. Outside is best. If you have to wax inside make sure there is some sort of air exchanger in place. Range hoods are best. Fans are better than nothing. Be sure to point out any lack of air exchanging equipment to the staff of any waxing facility or the race organizers.
  2. Whenever using any kind of heat in the waxing process (irons, heat guns, torches) always wear a respirator. Respirators that cover your eyes are best and check for a fluorocarbon rating on your respirator. Remember, the most dangerous fumes are not from powders but resins in grip wax and klisters. Wear a mask even when you are using non-fluorinated waxes since fumes from burnt paraffins are not OK to inhale. Respirators are required in the wax room.
  3. When creating any dust in the waxing process (brushing, scraping) always wear a respirator and gloves. Compounds in blocks, liquids, powders, klisters, and other hardwaxes can be absorbed through the skin. Wax companies keep their wax recipes secret so we have no idea what chemical compounds are present in most waxes nor their effects on the body. Always wear gloves while waxing to reduce your risk to negligible levels.
  4. People who are not waxing are not allowed in the wax room.
  5. Be sure to safely dispose of wax shavings and dust. Contained in a plastic garbage bag is adequate.

With the proper level of adult responsibility, any wax can be used perfectly safely and with negligible harm to the environment. Follow the correct safety protocols whenever you enter a wax room and be prepared with the right safety equipment. Remember to enjoy your fast skis to the max!

    How to Cork Liquid Glide Waxes

    Instructional video in Swedish, but it gives you the idea. English instrctions below:

    Some liquids glide waxes require corking as part of their application process. For example, Ski*Go's pure fluoro fluids line requres a vigorous corking to achieve the best speed and durability from the product.
    1. Begin by applying a base paraffin that suits the day's snow conditions if required. Scrape and brush.
    2. Using the bottle's dabber, apply a good coat of the liquid wax over the entire glide zone.
    3. Set the ski aside until the liquid is visibly dry. It can take several minutes for the solvents to evaporate.
    4. Once the liquid is dry, use a hand cork or roto cork to vigorously rub-down the entire glide zone. The goal is to create as much heat friction as possible. After a minute or so of energetic corking, you can reach temperatures of up to 130C!
    5. Using a horsehair hand brush or roto brush, vigorously brush away the excess left-over wax. 8-10 passes with a hand brush should be enough or a few passes with the roto-brush.
    6. To polish, use a nylon hand brush or nylon roto-brush. 10-15 passes with a hand brush or 3-4 with a roto brush should be plenty. Your ski base should now be very shiny.
    7. Consider finishing your ski by adding structure with a rill tool if there is a lot of moisture in the snow, or if it is very cold or dry, finish the ski with some Ski*Go pink paper.
