The Swix PS8 Red 60 g Ski and Snowboard Wax is a great base prep wax for warm skis. It has a temperature rating of 4°C (25°F)/+4°C (39°F). This economic training and racing wax is easy to melt and very convenient to work with. The speed of the iron should be approx. 8-10 sec. on a skating or alpine ski. The wax can be re-heated after cooling to room temperature(10 min) for better durability. It's important to have a good iron to get an efficient melting of the wax.
