Our Tests & Lab Results


Friction Test

Our nano technology waxes create far less friction than any other existing wax component in the world.


We have performed comparative friction tests between our waxes and our competitors. Here are some results using an unwaxed ski base as reference:





COmparative Wear Tests

Accelerated wear tests were performed on an abrasive counter-face. Waxes were intensely worn to simulate multiple days of skiing. The wear resistance test was performed directly on wax bar samples.

Rotary test, 15n load, 33 min run, 4mm diameter, 500 rpm, room temperature


Conclusion: Glide Nano waxes have a much higher wear resistance compared to Toko Universal.




Hydrophobicity

Fluorocarbons are used for their hydrophobicity to repel water from ski bases. Until now, there was no alternative. Glide Nano uses nano particles to create hydrophobicity.



Conclusion: Glide Nano reaches similar contact angles as high as fluorocarbon competitors.




Durability test

Below are the results of an accelerated wear test, which was performed on sandpaper to simulate intense wear on wax from multiple days of skiing: 




Conclusion: Glide Nano lasts 5x longer compared to other waxes thanks to our patent diamond hard nano filters.
