STAR Rotary Brush Handle

STAR Rotary Brush Handle | 140mm

A roto-handle compatible with two STAR 70mm roto brushes or one STAR 140mm roto brush. Transparent shield keeps the dust at bay. The STAR roto set up is a great and unique option as a roto-brush set up. The 70mL brushes are the perfect width for Nordic skis and pack more nicely in the wax box than a standard 100mm roto brush set.

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 Cold-Apply Pucks (Fleecing)

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

    Cold-Apply aka 'Fleecing' is a quick and easy way to get amazingly fast skis. The system uses friction-heat generated by a roto wool applicator to apply a perfect, thin layer of wax to the ski base. The kilometrage you get out of waxes applied by this method tends to be good, but the standout feature is the raw speed of the skis it produces - particularly in warmer temperatures. Fleecing leaves the bare minimum amount of product on the base. This is fantastic because the ski bases' natural structure or stone grind is maximally exposed to the snowpack. Fleeced waxes can be applied either on a completely bare, clean base or a paraffin base wax. As temperatures get colder, it's recommended to fleece over a hard base paraffin. Fleecing produces very little dust or fumes and uses wax very efficiently. The number of steps involved in preparing a fast pair of skis is reduced when compared to other application methods. The speed of skis, speed of application, health and safety, and cost of the cold-apply system make it very attractive. Most people don't know this, but you can fleece any puck from any brand, not just the MasterWax or YESwax pucks. You can also fleece most liquid waxes (once the solvents have evaporated) as long as they do not contain silicone compounds.
    1. Begin by scraping a brushing out your base as thoroughly as possible. Use steel brushes if you have one. Bronze brushes are second-best.
    2. Clean your entire base with a base cleaner or wax remover. Wipe as much dirt and dust off with Fiberlene or shop towel.
    3. Using a piece of Fibertex, energetically rub-down the entire glide zone to remove any microscopic hairs or burrs in the base. Ski*Go's pink paper is also great for this.
    4. If temperatures outside are below -7C, it is recommended to iron, scrape and brush a layer of very hard paraffin melt wax. A green wax is best, blue is second-best.
    5. In your head, mentally divide your wool applicator or roto-fleece in half. Load up half the applicator with product by gently touching the puck to the rotating applicator. Leave the other half of the applicator clean. The clean side is for buffing later on.
    6. Taking the clean ski and using medium force, run the loaded side of the applicator up and down the ski a few times to apply the product.
    7. Once the ski is loaded, switch to the clean side of the applicator and using slightly more pressure, buff out the ski several more times.
    8. Your ski should now be shiny and ready to go fast!
