Uses and tips for Fiberlene

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have seen and heard about many uses for the Fiberlene type cloth/paper everything from cleaning the skis with wax remover before starting to tune to using it with an iron to save on the amount of wax. I have no experience with it and just trying to get some tips on how people use this stuff most.

RShea, I use it after wax is on the ski and just before letting it cool. Cut a piece a bit larger than iron so that I can hold the fiberlene, put it on the ski while wax is still hot and put the iron on the paper, then drag the iron and paper to the other end of the ski, kinda slowly, spreads and picks up a bit of xcess wax. Seems like a good idea, who knows?

I use it for the super cold wax (CH6, CH4, Homenkol Ultra, etc.), which is almost never.

Why only the cold waxes? Do you use it between the iron like mkevenson discussed?

Cold waxes are hard and brittle which makes them a PIA to scrape if the coat is too thick.

If you don't apply enough you could burn your base becuase the iron temp is hotter then normal to melt it properly.

Cleaning the iron afterwards: sheet of Fiberlene on top of newsprint.

Did not think of the iron cleaning. I usually just take a old towel and finish with some paper towels to the iron while still warm but not hot enough to burn the towels.

I use it after each brushing just once firmly down the length of the ski to pick up wax dust and dirt that has been kicked up.
