Rex Announces a complete range of fluor-free racing ski waxes with NKinetic™ water and dirt repellent technology

Addressing the performance demands of national teams in the post fluor ban FIS World Cup with a new non-toxic and biodegradable ski wax technology

Oy Redox Ab, a Finnish ski wax manufacturer, announces at ISPO winter sports trade show a new range of glide waxes with fluor-free Rex N-Kinetic™ technology. With a high focus on sustainability, Rex has developed an alternative for fluorinated products with similar hydrophobicity and dirt and water repellent properties as the fluorocarbon compounds that were recently banned by FIS.

“We started the project of developing a successor to fluorinated technology already in the winter 2013, when we were developing our latest high-end glide wax series prior to Sochi Olympic games. After 8000 timed test on ski tracks we came up with first generation of this new technology we have named as Rex N-Kinetic. At first it was used in waxes in addition to fluor, although we knew it was already pretty darn fast without fluor too. Since the Sochi games we have been working with top teams to develop and exploit the benefits of NKinetic technology further. The latest revisions we are now introducing are also biodegradable, which is huge step ahead when compared to fluorinated compounds.”, says Juuso Liukkonen, R&D Engineer at Rex.

A complete range of fluor-free hydrophobic products in all categories

With the announcement of two new 100% N-Kinetic™ level 4 glide wax top coatings, and four new N-Kinetic™ level 2 liquid glide waxes, Rex is now offering a serious fluor-free alternative to powders and high fluor paraffins. N-Kinetic™ technology is also used in the latest racing grip wax series of Rex, called N-Line, and in ski care products like Rex Glide Cleaner.

“We happy to offer a complete range of racing products that in many cases replaces the performance of traditional fluorinated waxes, including powders. Our N-Kinetic level 4 top coating liquids have already been used in FIS and IBU World Cup during seasons 18/19 and 19/20, simply because in optimal conditions they have beaten all powders in glide tests arranged by teams. Race speeds in FIS World Cup might not slow down after the fluor ban, as some have speculated earlier.”, said Antti Peltonen, Brand Manager and partner at Rex.
