PTEX hairs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Should any ptex hairs be present on a ski after a stone grind at the shop?

I took a pair to get stone ground, and what I got back seemed fine. Then I wanted to change the wax to something COMPLETELY different, so I went the citrus solvent route.

What I found under that wax, was many ptex hairs. I got rid of them with a fibrelene pad, stroked from head to tail.

Was that the right thing (TM) to do?

Yes that should work. But I won't worry to much unless your one of the top 10 racers in the world, for most of us it really doesn't matter.

yeah bro thats normal... and its good that you did that.
take a steel brush, and some sand paper wrapped tightly over a scraper, and brush and scrape out the base to completely bring out the new structure.
wax them alot. a stone grind takes out all of your old wax that you had in your base.
