Thanks for shopping at Hertelskiwax.com. We know you have many choices in purchasing wax. We at Hertel pride ourselves in the invention and production of the only true All Temperature Ski/Snowboard Wax in the world.
President and CEO Terry Hertel founded Hertel & Company in 1972. Hertel's corporate offices and manufacturing facilities are based in Sunnyvale, California. Hertel pioneered the encapsulation of surfactant wetting agents and fluorocarbons in paraffin. This is important as these ingredients significantly increase the performance and safety of the skier and snowboarder. This allows everyone to have more FUN on the slopes!
Terry holds patents for his surfactant ski wax, Liquid HotSauce Ski & Snowboard Wax, perfluoropolyetherdiol formula high performance Ski & Snowboard Wax and the pollen rejection system products for the spring season. He continues to re-engineer his Hertel wax systems to meet the evolving standards of the ski industry, exceeding the challenges of today's terrain.
WHY HERTEL WAXES WORK SO WELL
Hertel Ski Waxes Improve Performance Where the Ski Meets the Slope.
Some skiers look for speed while others desire performance. Using the right HotSauce Wax daily is an essential way to improve both. Once the ski is in motion, you are applying pressure and exerting friction, melting the snow, and creating a fine layer of water between your ski base and the snow. Control and maneuverability in skiing is derived from altering the structure of this water. Hertel ski wax systems perform a special process using an encapsulation process; tiny bits of surface-active agents formulated into the waxes interact with water, decreasing surface tension and friction which leads to increased control for the skier. The wax breaks up the water (snow) resulting in easier running, better control, added safety and more fun. When commanded to turn, skis with a Hertel wax job slide with ease.
Hertel Ski Wax is the leader in reducing surface tension to improve wax penetration into the ski base. Successfully modifying liquid properties through dramatically reduced surface tension can result in improved wetting. Think of spilled gasoline spreading quickly on the ground, getting into every crack and crevice. This is intentionally designed as a wetting process that improves performance or when on the ground disburses. Hertel waxes are designed to be compatible with the ski base. They contain powdered polyethylene emulsion with a special water-activated micro encapsulation product. As you apply the wax, it actually wets itself into the ski. This process produces our Super HotSauce
, White Gold
, Racing FC739
, and liquid ski wax products.
All our waxes are ALL TEMPERATURE products. We have also created a new wax vehicle called 158 flex. This, along with surfactants and fluors, make our ski waxes extremely flexible with enhanced durability. Our wax system actually bonds to the base of skis and snowboards. No other wax will last as long as Hertel Hotsauce waxes. This will reduce the frequency in which you have to wax your skis or snowboards. Go have fun and Wax with Hotsauce today!
