How to apply

Before you start

Plug in the iron and give it a few minutes to heat up, and then brush the base well with a stiff cleaning brush. The correct setting for the iron is that where the wax does not smoke while ironing, but a very light wisp of smoke comes off the iron when not in contact with the base.


Hot scrape cleaning with RENEW

  1. Heat up the bar of wax by touching to the iron
  2. Rub the heated bar to the base and get it fully covered with a thick layer of wax.
  3. Iron the wax in, making sure it does not smoke. When the topsheet feels warm to the touch, you are done.
  4. Scrape the wax while it is still warm, the wax scrapings should be clean. If they are not, repeat the hot scrape process until they are.
  5. Brush aggressively with a stiff brush. We use a fine soft steel brush for that purpose, a brass brush will also work.

  5. Wipe the base with a lint-free paper or cloth.



Applying Bullet

  1. Heat up the bar of wax by touching to the iron. Rub the heated bar to the base and get it fully covered with a thick layer of wax. This is a hard wax requiring high iron temperature, make sure you have enough wax on the base.
  2. Iron the wax in, making sure it does not smoke. When the topsheet feels warm to the touch, you are done.
  3. Wait 15-30 minutes, then scrape very well with a sharp plastic scraper.
  4. Brush well with a stiff brush. We use a fine soft steel brush but a brass/horsehair brush will also work.
  5. Wipe the base with a lint-free paper or cloth.



Applying overlays (Butter, Q6 and Rocket)

  1. Rub the bar on the base to apply a LIGHT coat of wax.
  2. Buff in using a Scotchbrite pad, a synthetic cork or a nylon stocking.
  3. Brush well with a brass/horsehair brush (you can skip this step for Rocket).
  4. Wipe the base with a lint-free paper or cloth.



Applying Momentium

  1. Use the Scotchbrite pad to spread a very thin layer of Momentium paste on the base. Buff it in well, it should look shiny when you are finished (if it does not shine, you applied too much).
  2. Wait three to five minutes, then buff again with the Scotchbrite pad, a synthetic cork or a nylon stocking.
  3. Brush well with a brass/horsehair brush.
  4. Wipe the base with a lint-free paper or cloth.
