Application directions

Since GI wax contains no fluoro it is not necessary to be concerned with humidity. Universal waxes need not be concerned about snow temperatures either. However for GI HC, 1000, 2000, XC Race, N8 and Travis Ganong race series consider the following :

Melt the wax using the following temperature guide:

For cold snow (below 18°F) set the iron temp to 130C (260-270°F),   cool(18-28°F) or warm (above 28°F) set at 125°C (260°F) and for Ultimate and N8 series set at 110°C (230°F). Using a standard iron (w/o temperature control) set to minimum-medium temperature.

Use the iron to drip the wax on the ski/board and iron on the wax evenly to cover the entire base. Do not burn the ski or board base; keep the iron moving.

Allow the wax to harden, scrape thoroughly and brush.
