Self-organizing polymers and nanoparticles are the secret behind the Cerax wax technology developed by Nanogate Coatings Systems GmbH. Professional and amateur skiers alike appreciate the simple, quick, and clean application process. Prepared skis and boards – for downhillers, snowboarders, or crosscountry specialists – perform better on turns and are faster than equipment treated with fluoride waxes. Offering improved glide characteristics, the Cerax wax technology makes downhill and crosscountry skiing more fun on all kinds of snow.
The Nanogate research and development departments have worked closely with users and technicians with world-cup experience to create a user-friendly product for skiers within a very short span of time. Unlike traditional fluoride waxes, Cerax Nanowax relies on the self-organizing properties of fluoride polymers and multifunctiontal nanoparticles. Applied in thin coats, Cerax does not fill out the built-in structures of the ski but spreads itself like a second skin over the contact surface.
Thanks to this thin coating layer and the uniform reaction of Cerax Nanowax and the contact surface to temperature changes, skis show better turning and gliding performance. In addition, the superior adhesive behaviour of the polymer makes skis treated with Cerax more resistant to aggressive types of snow.
Only minimally responsive to temperature, Cerax Nanowax is available in a range of versions suitable for different types of snow. Uniform application with a sponge applicator ensures low material consumption and thus helps keep costs down. Ski preparation takes only ten minutes and gives skis glide characteristics that cannot be matched even with multiple treatments and ironing.
The wax technology can even be used on the slopes without the need for unwieldy equipment – enabling skiers to respond quickly to changes in weather conditions. Even easier, quicker, and ready to use at all times is the new disposable Cerax Pro Speed cloth, which makes both snowboards and skis faster. Cerax is there for what really counts in skiing – a fun winter sports experience.
The streamlined Cerax Nanowax line offers products for both leisure and competitive skiing as well as service and accessories, offering solutions for alpine, nordic, and snowboarding disciplines.
