SILCA Secret Chain Blend - Hot Melt Wax

81 reviews

What is it?
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 crockpot to hot-waxing your chain?  Simply put the chain in the bag and immerse in hot water!

Who's it for?
The cyclist looking to maximize performance through friction reduction, or the cyclist who loves a silent running bicycle.

 


Why We Designed It:

When we launched secret chain lube, Josh admitted that the starting point for this product was a hot wax recipe he had used for years with pro teams that had won numerous world and Olympic medals. The idea behind Secret Chain Lube was to bring this technology to a lube that didn't require hot melting but turns out, many of our customers were already big fans of hot waxing chains, and the requests flooded in for us to release the SILCA Secret Wax Blend.. so here it is!

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).

 

The Environment:

Best of all perhaps is that this formula would prove to be very environmentally friendly, utilizing 4 different types of wax, nanoplatelets of WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide).

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

    Wax convert over here

    Super happy with the secret chain blend. The hot wax is worth it for the silent running and drivetrain cleanliness alone. Haven’t put enough miles on to make a statement about to what extent it’s improving the chain wear rate. I sure hope the silca team is working on a wax that holds up in (very) wet conditions….

    Works well but not silent ride

    A little shocked to see the dry chain stiff like ... After mounting all loosened up and running nice still after 500 km. Few drops of liquid and on it goes. But silence is not as I wished. Shimano Ultegra 8050 52t and 28-11 (new) dura Ace chain (new)

    Super clean after apply.

    Using the chain after apply Silca hot melt wax for a month now with a 600 km ride. Love the cleanness of the chain (see the picture of my bike that never clean up the chain for a month) because there is no need to apply any lube on it. The chain is so quiet. Appear to be cheaper than using the loop as I don't have to apply it often. I have done the wax on 3 chains and there is still plenty of wax left that I think I could do it for 5 times at least.
