  • How long does the FLEXXIT coating last?
    The Flexxit is very hard and therefore lasts a very long time. Because it is so hard, it doesn't rub off. Another important effect of the hardness is that it does not absorb dirt that you find on the trail. The skis therefore always maintain their speed over long distances (90km).
  • How long can I store Flexxit?
    Flexxit is an inorganic, water-based ceramic. It has excellent storage stability due to its alkalinity. It can therefore be stored at room temperature for several years without any change in the quality of the properties. Protect from frost!
  • Does Flexxit work with wax?
    Flexxit has excellent compatibility with wax. However, the wax must always be thoroughly removed and brushed out beforehand in order to reveal the structure of the covering again. We also recommend cleaning the surface structure with the Flexxit Cleaner. This ensures excellent adhesion of Flexxit to the surface.
  • How quickly can I coat with Flexxit again after cleaning with Flexxit Cleaner?
    You can start coating with the Flexxit anti-friction coatings immediately after cleaning with the Flexxit Cleaner and wiping with a dry cloth. The Flexxit variants contain the same components that are also included in the Flexxit Cleaner. Therefore, there is no need to wait for additional drying time.
  • What is the difference from fluoro wax?
    Flurium is the most electronegative element in the periodic table of elements. Fluorine therefore has the best hydrophobicity (water repellency) of any material in the world. In wet conditions, this hydrophobicity ensures that the water film between the ski base and the snow surface is transported away well together with the structure of the ski base. But the fluorine has a crucial disadvantage: just as smooth as it is on the top, it is also on the bottom. The corridor connections are therefore rubbed off very quickly and the originally excellent hydrophobicity and speed are lost relatively quickly. In contrast, the ceramic Flexxit is very abrasion-resistant and maintains its excellent speed over a very long distance. The drainage of the water film in wet conditions is increased here by a coarser structure in the ski base, which also works over a very long distance.
  • What should I do if the surface turns gray?
    The gray discoloration of the ski base, especially in the area behind the binding, is due to fine hairs being torn out of the base by aggressive snow crystals. These fine hairs can be removed again in two ways: either you grind the entire ski base with a diamond grinder, or you wax the base surface again with a base wax using the hot wax process. By waxing the ski base with hot wax, these fine hairs are glued into the wax matrix. By removing it with a sharp scraper blade, these fine hairs are peeled off from the surface of the covering together with the wax. Before applying the Flexxit anti-friction coatings, the base must be brushed out very thoroughly in order to expose the fine structure of the ski base again. This is the only way the film of water can be drained away effectively through the structure of the ski base in wet conditions. After brushing, clean the surface with Flexxit Cleaner. This means that the surface structure is clean again and can be brought to optimal sliding speed with the Flexxit variants.
  • Can I apply a hand structure to the ski base on Flexxit anti-friction coatings?
    The Flexxit anti-friction coating is very elastic, so that a hand structure can also be created using the Flexxit anti-friction coatings. After application, we recommend a hand structure and brushing the surface of the covering again with a hand brush.
  • Do I need an iron?
    No. Flexxit is simply applied, dries at room temperature and is ready to use immediately after polishing.
  • Kann ich Flexxit im Flugzeug mitnehmen?
    Ja das geht. Da Flexxit keinerlei Lösungsmittel enthält. Da die Produkte weniger als 100ml enthalten können sie sogar im Handgepäck transportiert werden.
