Limited Warranty

SILCA LIMITED WARRANTY 

Parts covered by SILCA Limited Warranty are considered to be subject to wear through normal use or are consumable subject to degradation through the course of their daily use.  SILCA guarantees the life of these items to be at least 2 years from the date of original purchase.

    SILCA Super Secret Chain coating started out as a project to develop the fastest Hot-Melt wax lubricant available more than a year ago.  Josh has been recommending Hot Melt Wax and helping Pro cyclists and triathletes wax chains for years and wanted to bring his lubricant formula to our customers, the challenge was how to consistently melt, dip and agitate the chain across different crockpot designs and temperatures.  The project took a fascinating turn from the world of IndyCar when josh was introduced to a group that had developed a technology to put micro-scale wax powders into a solution that was quick drying and forms a coating that is indiscernible from hot melt dipping. The combination of air-drying liquid wax and Tungsten Disulfide would quickly prove to beat all currently available hot melt waxes in friction testing while being much faster and easier to apply.

     


    • 4 oz. and 8 oz. bottles with the precision applicator tip for dripping on your chain or 16 oz. jar with 12 oz. lube (leaving room for your chain) for dipping the chain
    • The chain should be VERY clean and dry before applying, How to Clean and Wax a Chain
    • Apply according to video and let dry for AT LEAST 12 hours for optimal results, 24 hours if applied in cool or humid weather conditions!  We recommend applying the lube AFTER your ride so it's ready for next time!  See Chart Below for more Info
    • NOTE: Over time the WS2 will begin to settle to the bottom of the bottle, shake well before using!

    FAQs:

    What temperature can I apply Super Secret Chain Coating? 41 - 95 °F / 5-35 °C

    What temperature is the best for storing the Super Secret Chain Coating? 41 - 86 °F / 5-30 °C

    Please note: Field tests have determined that prolonged exposure to below-freezing temperatures, can cause viscosity breakdown to the Super Secret Chain Coating. The coating will become quite thick. It is OK to apply to the chain as the functionality is still viable. In extreme cases, it may be necessary to clear the cap with a needle.

      Great and Simple

      I use this every 125 miles and do a hot wax every 1k miles. So far the chain hasn't had any real wear and I am 2.25k miles on the chain.

      Great Stuff, but does your nozzle get blocked ?......

      I found a trick, which may or not work for you. Microwave the bottle for 15-20 seconds before you use it (nozzle open). This stops the nozzle getting blocked, and goes on the chain really well as it is slightly more viscus. I would suggest shaking the bottle more frequently too, to mix all of the active ingredients. When warm it does seem to seep into the chain better.

      A friend also swears by storing the bottle upside down, to get all the 'black' bits in the mix.

      Top tips from down here in Florida. Cheers all.

      Why did I ever oil my Chain?

      After five thousand miles running Super Secret Chain Lube on three bikes I'm a convert. The initial cleaning process was fairly straight forward using shake bottles, two rounds of citrus degreaser, and two baths (just to be certain) of denatured alcohol. I've tried both dipping and dripping the lube and can't say I've seen a lot of difference in noise, feel, or longevity between the methods. But what a difference between the lube and others that I tried. I use to replace chains every 1-2000 miles. My Super Secret Chain Lubed ones have over 2000 miles each and still I still can't get the .5 gauge between links. Easy to wipe down the chain and reapply every couple of hundred miles. And I've found the dirty wax washes out of clothes pretty well and comes off my hands with anything from dry clothes to soap and water. The downside is that I still have to pedal on up elevations. I hope Silca is working on that.

      Clean and quiet chain

      Even in the wet and sandy Ore to Shore race this lube kept my chain running smoothly. Love it
