The VAUHTI FC Cold Powder is an excellent glide powder. The FC products have superb characteristics. They minimize the surface energy of the ski base, making it super-hydrophobic and dirt-repelling. The speed, glide sensitivity, and durability of the FC-powders are excellent in all weather conditions.
Conditions: all snow conditions; excellent in cold conditions to reduce dry friction
Temperature: -20C to -6C
Instructions for cold conditions:
- Iron the powder in by quick (approx. 7-10 sec.) strokes; the iron temperature must be approx. 170 – 180°C. Roto cork the ironed powder surface while still warm, at low drill RPM and light pressure. Only two or three strokes from ski tip to tail are required
- Cool the skis thoroughly and carefully scrape away excess powder
- Brush by roto horsehair brush. Continue with roto nylon brush until the surface is even and glossy.
o If no roto tools are available, clean natural cork can be used for fixation – rub the surface vigorously and hand brushes for brushing – use a roster brush to open the base and a nylon brush to polish the surfaces.
