LFX Fluorocarbon Glide Waxes

These are fluorinated hydrocarbon waxes having a lower percentage of low-melt point fluoro additive. They are used as training waxes, or as racing waxes with Cera F as a final layer, or alone as a race wax at very low temperatures.
The temperature ranges and wax colors of the LFX waxes coincide with the HFX category, however they are distinguished from the HFX waxes by the 60 gram bar size.They are also available in packages of 180 gram and 900 gram.  LFX waxes are lighter coloured than CHX.

FUTURE CERA®
Swix Future Cera™ Technology is incorporated in the LFX-line. Swix Future Cera® technology decreases the half-life time of the product from years to months, thus the bioaccumulation potential is reduced to negligible levels without sacrificing performance!

LF03X
LF3X Cold Powder.
Temperature range from -12°C to -32°C (14°F to -25°F).
A very hard powder wax having a high content of fluorocarbon material. Used when the snow is very fine-grained and very cold. Easy to iron and scrape. Also helps to reduce base abrasion on cold, aggressive snow.
  LF04X
Temperature range from -12°C to -32°C (10°F to -25°F).
Recommended iron temp: 155°C (311°F).
A new cold wax for dry friction conditions, which can perfectly be used alone as a race wax when the air humidity is low. It performs very well on artificial snow and has a great durability.
In the warmer part of the temperature range, and when high air humidity, Cera F powder, such as FC04X will increase the performance.
  LF05X
Temperature range from -8°C to -14°C (18°F to 7°F).
Recommended iron temp: 150°C (311°F).
The 5 series is brand new for the Cera Nova X line, and fulfill a hardness gap between the 4 and the 6 series. It’s easier to apply than the 4 series, but provides outstanding glide properties within its temperature range, and has a great durability.
LF05X can be used as a race wax alone, but is often used as a base for Cera F powder, such as FC05X.
  LF06X
Temperature range from -5°C to -10°C (23°F to 14°F).
Recommended iron temp: 145°C (293°F).
Our std. LF6 has been one of the greatest successes in the old Cera Nova system, and through comprehensive testing we haven’t found anything better.
This wax is very versatile. Its area of use stretches from base for Cera F powder, racing wax and base prep wax for cold skis. LF06X has a good durability and offer great performance on artificial snow.
When used as a base for Cera F, we recommend the new FC06X powder.
  LF07X
Temperature range from -2°C to -8°C (28°F to 18°F).
Recommended iron temp: 140°C (284°F).
A new and improved wax that performs great in normal winter conditions below the freezing point. Its hardness makes it convenient to work with and easy to get a good end-result.
Can be used as a racing wax at low air humidity, but will also serve the purpose as a brilliant training wax.
When used as a base for Cera F, we recommend the new FC07X powder.
  LF08X
Temperature range from -4°C to 4°C (25°F to 39°F).
Recommended iron temp: 130°C (266°F).
A continuation of the std. LF8, a great wax for both base prep and training. It can also can be used as a race wax, preferably with Cera F powder on top. Easy to melt and very convenient to work with.
When used as a base for Cera F, we recommend the FC08X powder.
LF10X
Temperature range from 0°C to 10°C (32°F to 50°F).
Recommended iron temp: 120°C (248°F).
A new wax in for the Cera Nova X line made a little bit harder than the old LF10
test result shows that a slightly harder wax performs better in this area, especially noticeable when used alone. The adjusted hardness is also making the wax more durable than before. It’s a good wax for base prep wax, but also a great training wax. For racing we recommend to go with high fluoro wax in this temperature area, but with a powder on top LF10X can be used with a good result. The FC10X powder would then be the natural choice.
  LF12X
Combi pack with 20g LF06X, 20g LF07X and 20g LF08X.
