Any useful source of fluorocarbons? Can this stuff
be worked with? Does anyone know?

I like this subject! It makes me wonder how good of
a wax we could make. I suppose simple usefulness should
be our goal, since we won't race with this stuff. But
it makes me wonder what's in the fancy, $$ stuff anyway!

Any useful source of fluorocarbons? Can this stuff
be worked with? Does anyone know?

Sure it can be worked with.  You just need to know what you're doing
in properly designing and working with the wax.  We have some chemistry
people on my team working with the stuff in their own line of waxes.
