Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS
GO Wax Lube
What application methods can be used with Go Wax Lube?
This is dependent on the equipment/chain size being lubricated and what best suits your requirements. The most common are our squeeze bottle with a thin tapered nozzle which is most suitable for thin and small chain applications and our adjustable nozzle SprayWax bottle for a finer, wider, and even upside down application. On broader chains the use of a paint brush to spread the lubricant over all elements of the chain is widely used. Pre-lubing of large chains is often done by dipping the entire chain in a ‘dip tray’ which allows it to be completely coated with lubricant. In instances where continuous lubing is necessary, an automated feeder system can be used.
Can I apply Go Wax Lube onto a chain that already has grease or oil on it?
After degreasing the chain, how soon can I apply GO Wax Lube?
How often should I degrease the chain when using GO Wax Lube?
Always degrease before applying GO Wax Lube for the first time. After initial application, we recommend that you do not degrease again – simply keep adding GO Wax Lube. Any excess build-up of lubricant can simply be brushed off with a light, dry brush or cloth.
How many coats of GO Wax Lube should I apply?
How soon after the chain has been lubricated can it be used?

Does GO Wax Lube have a shelf-life?
How long will GO Wax Lube last once the bottle is opened?
Why do I see dust build-up on my chain after applying GO Wax Lube?
How often should I lubricate the chain with GO Wax Lube?
There is no fixed rule here. The size and type of chain, the specific application, the time the chain runs per day, and the environmental conditions will vary significantly.
You need to find your sweet spot; therefore, we recommend that at first, apply and evaluate daily. Don’t only visibly check for lube, but run your finger over the equipment to feel if there is still wax on it.
Because chains run much cleaner with GO Wax Lube, first time users often think there is no lube on the chain as they are used to an oily gunky appearance (and relate that to it being lubed). In most cases, you will find there could still be plenty of lube left, hence the finger rub test. If you find there is still sufficient lubrication, extend the intervals by a day at a time until you find that more lube is required. That will give you your lubrication interval. Having said that, we recommend no longer than 7 days between each lube to ensure sufficient protection of the chain.
What sizes does GO Wax Lube come in?
120ml (available for motorcycle use only), 500ml squeeze, and 500ml SprayWax bottles, 5L and 25L container and 180L drum.
Is GO Wax Lube waterproof?
Can I add water to GO Wax Lube?
Can GO Wax Lube be used on items besides chains?
Yes. GO Wax Lube can be used on a variety of applications including open gears and bearings, cables, screw threads, door hinges, woodworking equipment, marine equipment, and more.
Can I use GO Wax Lube on my marine boat?
Can I use it on Chainsaws?
What is the operating temperature of GO Wax Lube?
How much lubricant should I use?
Sufficient to properly coat the chain or equipment. Remember that all moving parts that come in contact with another part require lubricant to reduce friction between them and thereby increase longevity. So, make sure all those parts are lubricated especially where the surfaces come into contact and that is enough. If your equipment operates in areas with high rust, you may want to make sure that all the equipment is covered to prevent oxidation and therefore rust. You cannot ‘over lubricate’ the chain.
Is GO Wax Lube environmentally friendly?
Why did GO Wax Lube not adhere to the chain after applying?
How do I clean GO Wax Lube if it is spilt?
Can GO Wax Lube be effectively used in an automated lubrication system?
I’ve noticed small bits of wax dropping off once the chain is operating. Is this normal?
What type of chains can I use GO Wax Lube on?
Is GO Wax Lube safe to use in ‘food-grade’ rated sectors?
What makes GO Wax Lube better than other lubricants and why should I consider changing my current lubricant?
Why is using GO Wax Lube or SprayWax more cost efficient than using an aerosol based lubricant?
Aerosol packaged lubricants normally contain as little as 10-25% lubricant with the remainder a combination of carrier fluid, solvents and propellants. So, you are being short changed with lubricant. GO Wax Lube and SprayWax contains up to 50% pure wax with the remainder the carrier fluid, which is water. There is NO gas, propellants or solvents required to get it out the can. Then it also works much better, offers extended equipment life and minimises downtime. This all adds up to make it a much better value proposition – do we need to say more on cost efficiency?
GO Wax Lube is thicker than oil; will it still penetrate and lubricate my chain properly?
Yes. Because GO Wax Lube uses water as its carrier fluid (which evaporates at a much slower rate than other carrier liquids e.g. solvents), when properly applied it penetrates to all parts of the chain and/or equipment.
I’ve noticed that the chain is running cleaner but can’t see if it has lubricant on it. How must I check?
Don’t only visibly check for lube, but run your finger over the equipment to feel if there is still wax on it. Because chains run much cleaner with GO Wax Lube, first time users often think there is no lube on the chain as they are used to an oily gunky appearance (and relate that to it being lubed). In most cases, you will find there could still be plenty of lube left, hence the finger rub test. If it feels dry, then it is time to lube again.
Can GO Wax Lube and SprayWax be used in flammable or pressurised conditions?
How long can GO Wax Lube extend the chain life?
Will the GO SprayWax bottle still function if used upside down?
With GO SprayWax, can I adjust the spray volume and pressure of lube delivery?
I’ve noted that the viscosity of GO SprayWax is slightly thinner than GO Wax Lube. Does this diminish the effectiveness?
GO Eco Degreaser
Is GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner environmentally friendly?
YES. GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner is 100% environmentally friendly, 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, solvent free, non-caustic, non-flammable and non-volatile.
Is GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner safe to use in ‘food grade’ related sectors?
How should it be applied?
I bought a bottle of GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner which has now changed colour. Is it still suitable to use?
I applied GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner and rinsed it off but it did not clean the surface – why?
In almost all instances where the product does not perform to its optimal levels, it has been because of incorrect use. This is mostly through not agitating or allowing sufficient time for the active ingredients to do their work before being rinsed off. Even with simple motorcycle or car washing where it is not necessary to wait 10-15 minutes, best results are achieved by sponging or wiping the surface once the GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner/water mix has been applied.
Is it safe to rinse GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner directly into the soil or should it be contained and disposed of?
GO Eco Degreaser and Cleaner is 100% safe to rinse off directly into the soil as it is fully environmentally friendly and biodegradable and won’t pollute grass or soil as acid based degreasers do. However, please bear in mind the properties of the dirt that is being washed off as it may pollute the environment.
