Application Procedure of CERAX

- By: Matthias Ahrens

1.Remove existing coatings with brass or copper brush or clean base with CERAX cleaner.

2. Prepare base with CERAX Groundwax G or paraffin [hydrocarbon]wax. Do not use fluorinated waxes!!!

3. After the use of CERAX Groundwax you should nylon brush . If using paraffin, scrape and brush the skis.
Very important - CERAX has to adhere to the base, therefore brush well!!

4. Warm base with hairdryer [ 20 - 40 C] i.e. handwarm.

5. Apply CERAX racing polymer solution with sponge applicator.

6. Warm base once more with hairdryer [ 20 - 40 C] in order to enhance durability.

8. If necessary, structure the base to suit snow conditions before you apply CERAX racing polymer.
