SILCA Ultimate Chain Stripper and Wax Prep is a highly concentrated, biodegradable degreaser combined with a wax adhesion promoter (primer) which allows for fast, single-step preparation of factory chains for waxing while also improving wax adhesion and increasing longevity. SILCA Chain Stripper reduces the time and number of chemicals required to properly prep a factory-greased chain to less than 10 minutes and can even be used on-bicycle to prepare chains for drip wax application.
When designing the SILCA Ultimate Chain Stripper and Wax Prep formula, we started at the end of the process and worked backward. We identified chemicals that drive out greases and oils while promoting wax adhesion to metal. And here’s what we discovered: an organic cleaner that lifts and encapsulates greases and oils allowing them to easily be rinsed away from the metal surface. The result is the world’s first wax-optimized chain cleaner which not only removes greases and oils but primes the metal surface for improved adhesion for wax-based lubricants.
The aggressive ‘lift and encapsulate’ formula of SILCA’s Ultimate Chain Stripper and Wax Prep allows for two quick and easy cleaning applications.
