This is a special synthetic hydrocarbon powder wax to add to other waxes to increase their durability and to protect the base from ice abrasion. For especially abrasive snow, such as newly man-made snow, apply the wax of choice and then iron. While the wax is still in liquid form, or at least still warm, sprinkle CH3X over the wax. Even a generous amount will not effect glide. Then iron the CH3X powder into the wax layer. Allow cooling, then scrape and brush away the excess.
• Sprinkle along the base near the edges (especially under the boot/binding area).
• Iron in, cool and scrape/brush.
• Apply race wax.
• -12°C to -32°C (12°F to -26°F)
