How to read the denomination's structure of the «Tensor» ski wax?
You have to read starting with the last number of the nomenclatorial row – this last number indicates temperature range. So, the number (3) indicates the range -5⁰ / +5⁰С, (4) means -12⁰ / -3⁰С.
Farther on there is an alphabetic code:
(H) means fresh snow. The ski wax is meant to interact with sharp snowflakes.
(A) means modified (fresh modified) snow. The ski wax is meant to interact with broken snowflakes and modified snow.
(G) – old (modified) snow. The ski wax is meant to interact with old snow that doesn’t contain sharp snowflakes but includes small hail and granular snow. It is perfect for artificial snow.
The next alphabetiс code defines the optimal temperature of the ski wax application on the surface of the skis.
(B) – the temperature range is +10⁰ / +25⁰С.
(A) – the outdoors application (for freezing weather).
The next alphabetiс code signifies the basic composition of the ski wax and the components of additives.
The first letter indicates the price bracket of the ski wax.
M – the professional ski wax of the mid-range price category
F the high-priced ski wax of the premium class (including expensive components).
As to atmospheric humidity, our ski waxes work a treat when it is 70% and above at -12˚ C. If the temperature is -10˚ C the air humidity goes down tо 65%, etc. At warmer temperature you can use these ski waxes regardless of humidity indicators.

The examples of the ski wax compositions (Season 2015-2016)
МЕВН-3 (-5⁰ / +5⁰С) – fresh snow
МЕВА-3 (-5⁰ / +5⁰С) – modified (fresh) snow
МЕВG-3 (-5⁰ / +5⁰С) – old (modified) snow
МЕВН-4 (-12⁰ / -3⁰С) – fresh snow
МЕВА-4 (-12⁰ / -3⁰С) – modified (fresh) snow
МЕВG-4 (-12⁰ / -3⁰С) – old (modified) snow
МЕВН-2 (0⁰ / +20⁰С)

The procedure of ski waxing
Shake the bottles with the basic ski wax and lubricating compositions before use.
The gliding surface of the skis should be purified with paraffin, then remove the rest of the paraffin with a hog.
Then mix the basic ski wax with the lubricating composition for getting the finished ski wax. Apply it on the gliding surface of the skis and wait for dryout. After that treat the gliding surface with a rotor-type brush made of natural hair or soft nylon. Finally polish it with felt.
Heat the gliding surface of the skis with hairdryer to improve the durability of the ski wax.
There are other methods of applying the ski wax on the gliding surface, similar to treating after applying of ski powder accelerators.
You can apply our ski wax on priming that doesn’t dissolve under the influence of dissolvents for the ski powder accelerators (for example, ski waxes CH, LF, HF, etc. are proper priming).
The optimum temperature range for the ski wax applying (see the alphabetic code) and usage is specified on the bottle. The optimum temperature of the usage is equal to atmospheric temperature.

Safety tips
Apply the ski wax only in well ventilated rooms.
Remain the ski wax unaffected by open flame.
Do not heat the ski wax over 250˚ С.
Do not meal in the room where the ski wax is applied.
You have to use the protection of respiratory apparatus (respirators or masks) while using brushes (including rotor-type brushes) because of the formation of fine-dispersed dust from the ski wax.
Exclude the contact of conjunctiva and respiratory mucous tunic with the formed fine-dispersed dust.

First aid
The ski wax has dropped on your skin - dry the ski wax from it with a napkin and remove it's rest with water.
In case of eye contact - rinse your eyes in plenty of water. Consult the doctor as needed.
The ski wax has dropped on mucous membrane of respiratory apparatus – rinse it out, gargle.
Utilize the rest of the ski wax, wipe, consumer containers, bottles, dust, etc. as domestic waste after usage.
Finally - wash your hands with soap carefully.
