What is NOTwax

The Science

The snow sports industry has been transformed by DuPont’s discovery of a miraculous “super plastic” called Teflon® Fluoropolymer. There has been a dramatic rise in the use of fluoropolymers (or fluoro) in ski and snowboard waxes due to the performance enhancing characteristics (i.e. better glide and moisture resistance).

Wax manufacturers impregnate their waxes with the solid form of fluoro known as PTFE (polytetrafluoroethelyne). Some also lace their paste wax with PTFE.

However, Zardoz NOTwax is the ONLY 100% pure liquid fluoro base treatment available and we hold the patent. NOTwax is a perfluoropolyalkylether (PFPAE), quite different from solid PTFE. Using this liquid derivative enables us to reach a state of 100% pure fluoro and thus provide the maximum performance benefits that fluoro can deliver.
