Description of Green Oil White Super Dry Chain Wax 100 ml
Some people don't like using chain oil because it makes their trouser leg dirty on the way to work. Well, White is the solution. Simply, put it on your chain, let it dry, and it leaves a dry lubricating film on the chain. Dry lubes tend not to last as long as wet lubes, and offer less protection in the wet. Its important to keep your chain lubricated. This reduces friction letting you go faster and have a smoother gear changes. A lubricated chain results in fewer chain replacements too. White is great for dusty trail riding. In these conditions, you get more airborne dust which can stick to the chain. White is dry, so minimal dust is attracted. Its great for city riding too. White won't go on your trouser leg like other lubes, so its great for the commute to work on your fixie in Old Street, or your Brompton on the way to West Brompton. Green Oil also recommend White for road racing, BMX riding and recumbent bikes. White is great for Brompton and other folding bikes - where you're more likely to get oily whilst folding it up. Other dry lubes out there contain PTFE and petrochemicals, some even using toxic paraffin. They often use petrochemical wax too. White uses bees wax within the formula, and after its life on your bike, is totally biodegradable. Part of the formula is bio ethanol made from sugar. This is grown in the EU, and is the solvent part of the formula. Its alcoholic so flammable. This is the first Green Oil product to have a black and orange logo on, but its just the flammable symbol. Every Green Oil bottle is made from 100% recycled plastic - so don't be surprised if the bottle is a curious colour! The label is made from the same type of plastic as the bottle, to aid efficient recycling.
