Base Brushing

Swix brushes are designed for brushing wax out of the structures (base patterns) in ski bases and snowboards after you have used the acrylic scraper: Should be used in one direction, from tip to tail. Special brushes are also used before waxing to clean and open base for better waxabsorption.

These are the brushes you need:

Swix BrushingIt is recommended to use separate brushes for the waxes from the brushes used for Cera F.

There is a wide selection of Swix brushes. They are made at different price levels with different qualities depending on whether you are in the sport/recreational category or into high level racing having to do many skis or boards in a short time.

Ideally, you should select the following four brushes for waxes:
- one of the coarse steel brushes for occasional use for base surface restoration (Steel Brush T163N/T1800)
- one coarse bronze brush to use before every waxing (Coarse Bronze Brush T158/T181)
- one medium bronze brush for after waxing and scraping (Medium Bronze Brush T162/T182)
- one nylon brush as final finish (Blue Nylon Brush T160/T186)

Three brushes for Cera F Powder:
- for the “brush up” step and after ironing we recommend a stiff nylon brush (T194NB/T199B).
- for brushing we recommend the Wildboar brush (T164B/T198) or Horsehair brush (T157).
- for final finish brushing we recommend the Blue Nylon Brush (T160/T186).

Swix also carries a wide range of Roto Brushes - check the menu to the left.
