The Fluorine-Free Race Wax Development Process

This is an interview with Toko Chemist Stefan Jung about the development of fluorine free race waxes. Stefan relates some of the stories and challenges that he has faced as well as talks a bit about what he expects in the future.

Toko has been working on waxing solutions that don’t involve fluorine for the past 13 years. However, when the FIS announced three years ago that they would be banning fluorinated wax use at the World Cup, it gave all of the wax manufacturers a sense of urgency and importance to the project.
