Temperatures below zero affect the wax particle hardness, reducing lubricant efficiency. This lube has a modified congealing point that enables it to lubricate optimally at these temperatures, keeping your chain quiet and clean for longer. Squirt contains different waxes for optimum performance, including efficient lubrication and adherence to the chain. Because its dry, build-up does not occur and no grinding paste forms, extending drive train life.


What is the shelf life of Squit Low Temperature Chain Lube?2021-05-11T10:44:10+00:00

If stored under recommended conditions, the lube will last for many years. Stability samples of older than 15 years still retain functionality.

My Low Temperature Chain Lube is much thicker than when I bought it. What’s wrong with it?2021-05-11T10:43:25+00:00

Even though it is ideal for riding in cold conditions, Squirt Low Temperature chain Lube should be stored between 40℉ and 95℉ with the cap on. If it freezes (below 32℉, 0℃) or dries out, it becomes thick. It can be restored to a creamy liquid by adding a little water and shaking it up (normally about 10% of water).

What are the differences between Squirt Long Lasting Chain Lube, Low-Temperature Chain Lube and E-Bike Chain Wax?2021-05-11T11:17:26+00:00

Squirt Long Lasting Chain Lube is the original, first to market wax/water emulsion chain lube for use above freezing in all conditions. Low-Temperature Chain Lube: Solid wax hardens below freezing point (32℉, 0) impairing lubing function. Low-Temp contains wax modifier that keeps the wax consistency optimal at these temperatures (0℉ to 32℉, -18℃ to 0℃). E-Bike Chain Wax contains high-pressure additives to deal with generally higher rotational force on e-bike drive trains. These lubes are interchangeable but the full benefit of each negated without proper de-greasing when changing.

How often should I re-lube?2021-05-11T10:42:03+00:00

It depends on riding conditions. In general, when you start hearing a dry chain noise, re-application is already due. In wet, muddy conditions it will not last as long as in dry-dust free conditions. In general, from 30 to 300 miles on one application – the chain will stay clean. If you expect riding in wet conditions, lube your chain the day before if possible.

How often should I de-grease the chain when I’ve been using Squirt Low Temperature Chain Lube?2021-05-11T11:00:04+00:00

De-greasing is not necessary when you’ve been using Squirt Low Temperature Chain Lube. It does not form a black build-up like oils that traps dirt to accelerate chain wear. It does not smudge and stays dry. Brush off with dry brush if needed and remove occasional build-up from rear derailleur wheels with a toothpick.

Do I need to de-grease my chain before start using Squirt Low Temperature Chain Lube for the first time?2021-05-11T11:18:45+00:00

Yes. All Squirt Chain lubes and chain wax should be started on a clean, properly de-greased and dry chain. Factory grease on a new chain should be removed with organic solvent if needed. A second application five minutes after the first is recommended when starting out with Squirt.

How do I apply Squirt Low Temperature Chain Lube?2021-05-11T11:00:32+00:00

A: First time user:
1. Completely remove factory grease and other lubricants from your chain using a degreaser.

2. Rinse your chain with clean water and let it dry.

3. Follow the application instructions below and repeat after 5 minutes.

Application Instructions:
1. Shake bottle and apply to inside of DRY chain while turning the cranks.

2.Do not wipe off.

3. Allow chain to dry completely before cycling – especially in wet conditions. Do not degrease again.


For best results in cold temperatures (to enable the water-carrier in SLT to evaporate and not freeze on the chain), apply indoors at a warmer temperature and allow to dry completely – preferably overnight.
