Preparation and Application

First thing first - there are no miracles. Revolube can significantly reduce a chain drivetrain’s wear, but it cannot bring a worn one back to life!
For the best results, use Revolube on a brand-new chain, cassette, sprockets, gears, etc.

 

Drivetrain preparation

 

All new chains and cassettes come impregnated by a manufacturer. Revolube works on chemical bonding principal, thus you need to wash-off the impregnating layer from your gear.

If you want to use Revolube on a used chain, you will also need to remove any old lube/grease/contaminants residuals.

  1. Cleaning:

Whichever way you chose to clean the chain: on or off the bike, it is very important to clean it thoroughly from any residuals and leave the bare metal exposed.

Remember to work in a well-ventilated place, as the solvent fumes are hazardous to your health and might be explosive.

  1. Use a solvent, which can dissolve hydrocarbons, like petroleum-ether, petrol, Brake Cleaner etc…
  2. Use a brush to displace any solid residuals, from between the plates and inside links, using solvent.
  3. Wipe the solvent and dissolved residuals with a cloth. Leave the gear for a while until the solvent evaporates.

 

 

Revolube’s Application

 

  1. Initial application:

This is the most crucial part, as it is when the chemical bonding takes place.

  1. Apply a drop of Revolube to each, individual link of your chain with a dropper provided. Two drops for a motorbike’s chain.
  2. Make sure Revolube will penetrate inside each link. You will see the drop spreads on it.
  3. Smear the excess of the lube on the chain plates and cassette/gear.
    1. For bicycles, it usually takes turning the drivetrain while changing the gears back and forth for a few times.
    2. For bikes, an additional volume is required to spread it over the chain plates.
  4. Wait for 30 mins until the lube’s base evaporates.

 

  1. Subsequent applications:

It is recommended that you conduct subsequent applications every 3 months. You do not need to do a thorough preparation as described above, but a simple cleaning with water would do. E.g. using a pressure washer.
