CERA F

Swix Cera F reigns as the glide wax of choice when there can be no compromise in performance. Exclusively formulated for all high quality skis and snowboards. Swix introduced the first Cera F wax to the market in 1987 creating a wax revolution.

Cera F Powders – 100% fluorocarbon
These waxes have a unique combination of characteristics for providing:
• Very high degree of purity
• Very low surface tension
• Friction reducing lubricating power
• Exceptional water repellency
• High resistance to dirt and oils
• Chemical inertness and stability
• Thermal stability

In short, this means the fastest gliding for the longest duration due to the resistance of contamination from dirt/pollution in the snow being greater than regular paraffin waxes. Cera F Waxes do not contain CFC’s and is not harmful to the environment.

  FC4X
Temperature range from -10°C to -20°C (14°F to -4°F).
Recommended iron temp: 165°C (329°F).
A cold powder that works great in all snow conditions and perfect to minimize dry friction. This powder is brand new for the Cera Nova X launch and well tested over the last few years. It has proven itself in cold conditions at world cup destinations both in cross country and alpine and is the servicemen’s choice when the temperature drops low. Suggested base waxes are HF04X, HF04BWX or LF04X.
  FC5X
Temperature range from -3°C to -15°C (27°F to 5°F).
Recommended iron temp: 160°C (320°F).
Identical to our traditional FC100 powder, a cold powder that has shown great results for many years, and an absolute winner in cold conditions. Tests have shown best results in transformed and old snow, but it can also be used with great result in new snow. Easy to apply with a lower melting point. Suggested base waxes are HF05X, HF05BWX or LF05X.
  FC6X
Temperature range from -1°C to -10°C (30°F to 14°F).
Recommended iron temp: 165°C (329°F).
A powder for new and fine-grained snow, but is also performing well in transformed snow. Developed for the Cera Nova X line and has shown great performance in tests over the last 3 years. Already a favorite among several servicemen. Lower melting point makes it easier to apply. Suggested base waxes are HF06X, HF06BWX or LF06X.
  FC7X
Temperature range from +2°C to -6°C (36°F to 21°F). Recommended iron temp: 160°C (320°F).
A powder developed for normal winter conditions from around freezing and colder. From the cold side this powder performs well until you have a “suction” feeling in the track, then the FC08X is a better choice. Suggested base waxes are HF07X, HF07BWX or LF07X.

  FC8X
Temperature range from -3°C to +4°C. (39°F to 25°F).
Recommended iron temp: 165°C (329°F).
Our classic and best selling FC08X powder is continued in the new line. A quite easy decision as we haven’t found a better powder during our test period. It has just confirmed to us that this powder is performing extremely well, and is well deserved a spot in the new range. A versatile powder which performs well in all snow conditions on both sides of the freezing point. A safe choice that never disappoint you! Suggested base waxes are HF08X, HF08BWX or LF08X.

  FC10X
Temperature range from 0°C to +15°C (32°F to 59°F).
Recommended iron temp: 170°C (338°F).
A continuation of FC010X which is performing to well to be dropped in the new line. The strength of the powder is in wet conditions from 0°C and warmer. Used a lot during spring season with melting snow or falling wet snow. It performs well in all snow conditions.
Suggested base waxes are HF10X, HF10BWX or LF10X.
