Silca Secret Chain Blend - Hot Melt Wax (500g)
SILCA Secret Chain Blend (Hot Wax) brings all of the super speed and silence of our Super Secret Chain Lube in a hot-melt wax-dipped chain. Secret Chain Blend also utilizes the world's fastest, most lubricious additive, nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2). The best part of this product is the submergible pouch! Don't want to dedicate a crock pot to hot-waxing your chain? Simply put the chain in the bag and immerse in hot water!
The chain should be VERY clean and dry before applying
For year-round chain maintenance, top off the chain with a bottle of Super Secret Chain Lube.
APPLYING THE LUBE
FIRST: CLEAN your Chain
Method 1: On-bike cleaning
1. Use a degreaser and brush and begin working the degreaser into the chain links
Here is a link to the degreaser we recommend. https://amzn.to/3eu84E0
2. We recommend 6-8 revolutions of the chain, scrubbing all sides of the chain with the brush to work the degreaser into the links and rollers
3. Hose the chain directly just in front of the rear derailleur pulley. DO NOT DIRECT PRESSURE onto cassette, hub/axle or BB areas
4. With clean brush and strong dish soap/water mixture (we like ~1 tablespoon Dawn in ~2 cups water) work through the chain again, scrubbing all sides and trying to drive out any remaining dirt as well as any trapped solvent
5. Direct spray rinse the chain again
6. Dry chain with towel/paper towels and allow to air dry in sun for at least 30 minutes OR (preferred) Direct Blow with high-pressure air to drive out remaining liquids and particulates
