Applying Rex Gliders (Hot Waxing)


Standard hot waxing procedure using Rex Gliders.


  1. Melt wax onto the base
  2. Apply the glide wax as an even layer
  3. Keep the iron moving to prevent damaging the ski base
  4. Scrape the excess glide wax off
  5. Brush with horsehair brush (opening up the base structure is easier while the wax is still warm, especially when using harder gliders: blue, green, black)
  6. Let the ski cool down
