PS8 is an affordable wax for ski trips and training. Also works very well as a base preparation wax. Easy to melt and very convenient to work with. The speed of the waxing iron should be approx. 8-10 seconds for a skating or alpine ski. The wax can be reheated after cooling to room temperature (10 min.) for better durability. It is important to have a good waxing iron in order to melt the wax efficiently. Recommended waxing iron temperature 130°C. Replaces CH8X.
