Squirt Cycling Products introduced the plastic waste reducing Squirt Chain Lube Eco Box in 2022. The 5-litre container of Squirt’s acclaimed wax and water emulsion chain lubricant is designed to allow individuals and workshops to refill their Squirt Chain Lube bottles, thereby reducing the amount of waste. The Chain Lube Eco Box is available internationally via Squirt Cycling Products’ extensive distribution network.
Each Chain Lube Eco Box can save up to 41 Squirt Chain Lube 120ml bottles. The hard cardboard exterior is prominently branded, features a price chart for 120- and 500 milliliter refills, and is designed to be placed on a sales or workshop counter. Inside a soft bag is filled with 5 litres of Squirt Chain Lube, which boasts a wax and water emulsion formulation, is clean, biodegradable, suitable for all bikes and conditions, and is PFAS-Free. The Chain Lube Eco Box also features a tap and nozzle which is large enough to facilitate speedy refills but is small enough to slot into the mouth of Squirt Chain Lube bottles. This ensures spill free top-ups.
One of the key features of Squirt Chain Lube is that it is PFAS-Free. The unique blend of biodegradable waxes combined with the emulsification technology used in formulation provide a very stable, more eco-friendly product with a long-lasting lubrication effect. Traditional lubricants and many other chain lubes use Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) due to their low friction properties but these chemicals are extremely resistant to biodegradation and have been shown to accumulate in ground water, soil and even the human body. The unique waxes in Squirt Chain Lube act as friction reducing additives, without the negative effects associated with PFAS chemicals.
“While our Squirt Chain Lube is biodegradable, the plastic bottles we currently use are recyclable but not biodegradable,” Director of Squirt Cycling Products, Danie van Wyk, confessed. “This doesn’t sit well with us and we had to find a way to reduce plastics we are responsible for. While plastic technology is improving the simplest current solution is to allow cyclists and bicycle mechanics to rather reuse their Squirt Chain Lube bottles.”
As a company Squirt Cycling Products are committed to reducing plastics and we hope that this new product will help cyclists do the same.”
