GO Chain Wax is a UNIQUE, emulsion chain and general lubricant designed for optimum lubricating performance in most industrial and agricultural chain and equipment applications. It lubricates better, stays on longer than other dry lubes, and keeps the part cleaner.

Our client list includes Mittal Steel (NYSE, EURONEXT, JSE), Sasol (NYSE, JSE), Sappi (NYSE, JSE), PG Bison and many others.

GO is a wax based, solvent-free, long-lasting dry lube for industrial, woodworking, mining and agricultural chain and lubrication applications. It is especially effective in environments with a high density of air-borne dirt and dust such as sawmilling, fertiliser plants, mining and agriculture. However, its applications are virtually limitless including forklift, cranes, hoists, conveyor chains etc.

It is even used in more general industrial lubrication applications where lubrication is required, in vehicle suspension bushes, door locks, garage doors, builders props, etc.

GO has also performed particularly well across a variety of applications in the industrial, semi-industrial and DIY home woodworking environments as follows:
-Cast iron and nylon monobloc feed track on edge banders and multi blade rip saws
-Rack and pinion on precision machines, like CNC and beam saws
-Sliding table guides and rise and fall on panel saws and thicknessers
-Creates a non-stick surface for multi-drill bits, chucks, blades and cutter blocks
-Protects against friction and surface rust
-Total protection for all chain drives

Furthermore, it can be used effectively almost anywhere from lubricating hinges, threaded bars on sash clamps or auto planers, telescopic runners, height adjusters on pedestal drills, etc.

It is even used in vehicle suspension linkages, door locks, garage doors, builders props, etc.

GO is not suitable for chain saws and other high heat applications over 70°C.

Its high wax content, solvent free, formulation ensures the part runs cleaner in contaminated, heavy duty environments while providing exceptional lubrication where required.

GO is 100% biodegradable within a 40-50 day period. A product is regarded as “readily biodegradable” when in a 28 day test period it biodegrades by between 40 and 60% - GO achieved 85.67%! We don’t believe there is any other product on the market that can claim this. Together with the fact that there are no solvents of any kind in the lube, GO is truly in a class of its own as regards protecting the environment.

The biodegradability is especially relevant for agricultural applications where earth pollutant is a key consideration on farm equipment, while the lack of solvents makes the product ideally suited to environments where flammable products cannot be used due to safety concerns, such as in underground mines.

Produced for GO under license by the world's leading wax manufacturer, it is blended under specially controlled conditions from a number of specially selected waxes, extreme pressure additives and dry lubricants. In liquid form it penetrates the chain links and rollers where the specially formulated wax and additives enable it to handle high extreme pressures, while rejecting dirt, over extended lubrication intervals.


Three reasons:

  • It is the only wax/water emulsion lube available on the market.

  • Being an emulsion makes it possible to get a much higher wax content (+-40% - most other dry lubes have a maximum of 10-25%) per volume. Consequently, much more wax is applied to the chain.

  • Water also evaporates significantly slower than solvents therefore more wax is carried into the openings, and then, once dry, it repels water and dirt more effectively.

Its unique properties give it the ideal viscosity for:

  • penetrating all areas of the chain

  • extended operating life

  • reducing dirt build up on chain.

  • reducing fling off

GO's formulation ensures it sticks to the chain longer and extends lubrication intervals compared to other lubes on the market.

It's composition significantly reduces dirt build-up on the chain; therefore no grinding paste will form, which will reduce friction, improve performance and extend chain life up to three times the lifespan depending on conditions. With the increased lubrication properties and reduced dirt build up, GO also reduces the chances of chain seizure.

The formulation process gives it a unique, smooth texture making it quick and simple to apply. As GO is much cleaner than conventional lubes it is significantly cleaner to apply; any spillage can simply be wiped away with a dry cloth. There is less wastage as the lube is applied directly to the chain. No separation will take place under normal storage conditions and no clogging of the nozzle will occur.

Once GO has been properly applied, no degreasing is ever required (or recommended) again. Continuous applications can be done without having to clean the chain. Excess wax that is expelled by the chain does not attract dirt, hardens slightly and falls off during use. At most in extreme dirt conditions, cleaning with a dry brush is adequate. Cleaning chains is often neglected - as it is so highly disliked by staff - leading to reduced chain life due to the grinding paste formed and consequent wear. When they are cleaned it is inevitably a lengthy and time consuming process - either way it is a costly exercise for any company!

As GO contains no solvents, there is also absolutely no damage to, or premature degradation, of O rings where applicable.

PS: While GO is a premium product and is priced accordingly, it is significantly lower priced than some of the industrial chain lubricants on the market. Considering that, when compared to aerosol based products, you get a lot more wax on your chain and the fact that your chain will last longer and perform better, in reality it offers exceptional (dare we say unbeatable) value for money!
