Same as previous FC Mid powder, but with purified raw materials to comply with ECHA regulations on fluorocarbon substances, PFOA < 25ppb.

Works best on new and damp snow. They minimize the surface energy of the ski base, making it super-hydrophobic and dirt-repelling. At the same time, they are excellent in cold conditions to reduce dry friction. The speed, glide sensitivity, and durability of the FC-powders are excellent in all weather conditions. With versatile application methods every skier will benefit, even the lightweight skiers.

Base preparation for Vauhti FC Speed powders:

  • Clean the ski base thoroughly with Vauhti Clean&Glide cleaning and maintenance agent.
  • Use an UF, HF or LF RACE product suitable for the snow type and humidity as the base wax.
  • Scrape and brush the base wax layer carefully, start with roster or brass brush and polish with nylon brush.

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.
  • 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.

Instructions for wet and humid conditions:

  • Iron the powder in using so-called ‘full burn’, in which case the ironing takes for 15 – 20 seconds. The iron temperature should be approx. 170 – 180°C.
  • Cool the skis thoroughly and carefully scrape away excess powder.
  • Brush by roto horsehair brush. Continue with roto nylon brush and finalize the surfaces to a slightly matt condition by roto horsehair brush (matt surface is more hydrophobic as compared to glossy one).
  • When brushing by hand, open the glide surfaces by roster brush; continue with nylon brush and use a horsehair brush or roster brush for the slightly matt surface.
