SILCA SECRET CHAIN HOT MELT WAX BLEND
SECRET CHAIN BLEND IS THE HOTTER AND WAXIER VERSION OF THE SUPER SECRET CHAIN LUBE!
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!
Consisting of highly refined laboratory-grade paraffin and a high concentration of 3 specific sizes of nano-scale Tungsten disulfide, Secret Chain Blend not only acts as a lubricant but actually acts to modify the surface of the chain, filling in all of the crevices of the metal with highly lubricious and wear-resistant tungsten disulfide particles. As a result, chains waxed with Secret Chain Blend and Secret Chain Lube will actually get faster over time and after repeated waxings.
Secret Chain Blend is the only hot wax lubricant to have a specifically matched and compatible drip wax which can be used to ‘top off’ the wax as needed, extending the duration between hot wax applications, and guaranteeing the quietest running drivetrain possible. Using the combination of Secret Chain Blend and Secret Chain Lube can dramatically extend the chain and drivetrain component life (up to 10x).
IT’S ALL IN THE BAG
Even if you are new to hot melt wax for your chain(s), we’ve made the process simple. You don’t need fancy equipment to melt the wax with chain submersion; although, if already have your method then use it. For newbies: you will need water, a pot, and a heating surface (like a stove), and it’s that easy.
