Product Description

  • Black or Clear Drip Repair Candles.
  • For temporary repair of ski or snowboard base gouges at home or on the road
  • Simply light one end of these sticks with a lighter, then drip..rather than iron...the molten p-tex into gouges.
  • WARNING!!! They burn extra-hot (in excess of 970°F) which helps consume some of the undesirable black carbon created while the candle burns.
  • Please use them carefully because dripping p-tex is hot enough to severely burn skin.
  • Hold a steel scraper under candle when not actually dripping molten p-tex into gouges.
  • Sticks measure 8" x 3/8" (200 x 9mm).
  • Price is for one stick.
  • Purchase multiples of 10 (in one color) and save 10 cents per stick.

How to Use P-Tex Drip Candles

  1. Light stick on fire, allow the flame to get strong.
  2. Hold the stick like you would a pencil.
  3. Hold at a 45° angle about 1" above the gouge (you want a blue flame, not yellow, adjust height to achieve this).
  4. Drip molten P-Tex into gouge working toward yourself, as if you are drawing a line.
  5. When the gouge is filled allow it to cool (10 minutes is good).
  6. Scrape with a sharp metal scraper and you're done!

  1. Post slide over headwall gouuges

    Posted by Mark on 11th Feb 2015

    P-tex mends are rarely permanent but the candles did the job I needed easily and quickly. Also the Tognar Toolworks magazine had great insight and advice.

  2. Best quick fixes

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Mar 2014

    When you have a family of 4 tackling the slopes with snowboards, with every type of nasties sticking out from the ground under all types of conditions, it can get pretty expensive having the boards repaired after every few outings. This is a perfect light patch work, for such an awesome price, which last us all season until the boards are required to undergo major repair works (when needed). What I spent on the tools and these awesome deals, it initially cost me a 1/8 of the price of the repairs all season long. With videos and instructions on "How to", the learning curve is barely anything, beside suffering a bit of clean-up.

  3. Nice candles

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Feb 2014

    The Clear candles went on without any black carbon deposits, black ones worked well also.

  4. Great Product

    Posted by Chris on 14th Feb 2014

    These are great candles. The hole through the center make them burn a lot smoother and you will have a nice consistent drip. Great price and product!

  5. Easy to use and control

    Posted by Midwest skier..BB on 15th May 2013

    Best drip candles I have used in 35+ years. Hard to find on the Internet but Tognar made it easy to order and arrived in a timely manner. They have fine assortment of ski products sold by skiers for skiers.

  6. worked great

    Posted by chris on 22nd Mar 2013

    Hate dripping p-tex candles, but they are only thing that works for me, despite my healthy addition of carbon.

  7. Works as a p-tex candle should

    Posted by Rusty G. on 13th Mar 2013

    Works very well for light to medium deep gouges. They're made like a straw and seems to burn a little better for sure.

  8. good stuff

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2013

    Lights up better (quicker) than other ptex, sticks better and holds longer, all of this - by a significant margin. I've always used a sharp knife to cut off extra material, which isn't pretty but no problems w/ cutting off extra without pulling the patch out w/ a metal scraper.

  9. Doesn't keep lit

    Posted by Grant on 20th Feb 2013

    These started out ok, but then wouldn't hold the flame. The material is more sticky and appears to hold better but also doesn't come off as easy with a metal scraper so you might need to buy a sur form scraper as well.

  10. Melts even

    Posted by Bill Schumacher on 18th Jan 2013

    Melts even and is easy to scrape to an even surface.
