Default White bases at the biathlon world cup

Unless I'm wrong, Martin Fourcade's skis have plain white bases at his
victory in Östersund.

Check the video around 10'14

they make you watch the same disturbing add 3 times if you scroll
down.

Did they finally realize they could just glue PTFE directly to ski
bases, instead of making you iron fluorocarbons on? Took them a while.

On a second note, this could be just old good HDPE (polyethylene/
polypropylene) which is white/translucent in virgin form. They can add
any dye they want to make the ski bases any color. I had a pair of
skis ~20 years ago with white bases. In that case, no major changes to
the base chemistry, keep ironing in the fluoros in and inhaling the
teflon fumes and decomposition products.

P-Tex 4000 Clear seems to be still available from CPS (formerly Gurit,
formerly IMS)

Could it be that Fluoro-polymere bases are already available ?
