SILCA Chain Stripper is a powerful, eco-friendly degreaser combined with wax adhesion primer. This one-step solution prepares factory greased chains for waxing, resulting in increased wax adhesion and durability with fewer chemicals and a shorter timeframe (under 10 minutes) than traditional methods. It can even be used to prep chains for drip wax application.

• Made in USA


Option 1: For hot-melt waxing a new, factory chain with SILCA Secret Blend Hot Melt, simply immerse the chain in the Stripper and agitate 30 seconds.  Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes and agitate again for 30 seconds.  Remove the chain from the Stripper and rinse with water and then drop the chain directly into the hot wax, the water will boil off within a few minutes and the chain will be fully waxed with up to 30% longer application life than a chain cleaned by traditional methods.

Option 2: For drip applied waxing of a new or nearly new chain with SILCA Super Secret without removing the chain from the bicycle.  Apply 1 drop of SILCA Chain Stripper to each roller of the chain while backpedalling.  Allow to soak for 5 minutes.  Backpedal 10 revolutions of the crank to agitate cleaner and re-apply 1 drop per roller allowing to sit for 5 more minutes.  Rinse with clean water while backpedalling at least 10 revolutions.
