Description

The World's First Wax-Optimized Chain Cleaner

Silca Ultimate Chain Stripper + Wax Prep is a highly concentrated, biodegradable degreaser combined with a wax adhesion promoter (primer), allowing for fast, single-step preparation of factory chains for waxing while also improving wax adhesion and increasing longevity.

This 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.

Features:

  • Biodegradable / eco-friendly formula
  • Cleans chain in 10 minutes
  • Improves wax treatment adhesion
  • 16 oz (473ml)
  • Made in USA

So far so good

Ive used other wax cleaners but this product, on one use, seems effective. Very clean with minimal effort. I look forward to a full cycle cleaning process.

WORKS

Utilized for first time on two chains, one brand new and one lightly used (without stripping mfg grease and/or applying lube). Worked well, does seem to leave a �primer� coating prior to hot wax as touted. Discarded amount used after second chain but if it was brand new likely could have used it a few more times due to no contaminants. QUICKER/EASIER than ultrasound degrease and alcohol rinse as used and recommend by Silca prior to this product being available.

Works as described, makes waxing easy.

The Silca Chain degreaser works !

I did run my new Campy chain through the degreaser twice just to be on the safe side. Then hot waxed with Silca hot melt wax , put it on the bike and I will use Silca SS drip wax for the life of the chain.

Amazing

Worked perfectly and as advertised. I highly recommend watching Silcas videos online as there are specific procedures. I was able to use both with the chain off and on the bike. Great value as you will get a ton of uses and the product itself is safe to use

Does its job

This is a huge improvement over my previous 3+ step routine. Used this on what I thought was a pretty clean chain and was blown away by how much grease and residue it pulled out. I would recommend checking out Silca's videos about how to best use this.

Works great

The Silca chain degreaser works very well and does as good or better job than the ca paint thinner we can buy.

Works great

Love the 1 step chain stripper! It works great on new chains and it's so much quicker and easier than the mineral spirits, degreaser, & denatured alcohol process.
