WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIO CHAIN CLEANER AND BIO DRIVETRAIN CLEANER?
The main difference between the two products is the format and application of them. The Bio Drivetrain Cleaner is a pourable liquid degreaser in a bottle and the Bio Chain Cleaner is a fast acting aerosol.
Bio Drivetrain Cleaner is the complete drivetrain cleaning liquid solution that can either be poured into our X-3 Dirty Chain Machine or sprayed directly onto your chain ring, rear cassette and derailleur to clean your entire drivetrain within seconds. It’s fast and effective grease cutting formula removes all chain oil and wax residue. You have never seen results like this. We can guarantee it!
Bio Chain Cleaner has been specifically formulated to quickly and safely remove heavy chain grime using advanced solvents. Its unique formula penetrates the chain, cassette and derailleurs to break down oil and grease to leave the entire chain sparkling clean and contaminant free. It can also be used with our Chain Doc cleaning device for optimum, hassle free chain cleaning!
CAN I USE A BIO DRIVETRAIN BOTTLE TO REFILL MY X-3 DIRTY CHAIN MACHINE?
We recommend holding onto the 75ml applicator bottle which comes with the X-3 Dirty Chain Machine and refilling your machine using the 75ml bottle, as it has a specially designed nossle for this very use!
WILL BIO DRIVETRAIN CLEANER CONTAMINATE MY DISC BRAKES IF OVERSPRAY GETS ONTO THEM?
No, the water soluble formula can be easily rinsed off without causing issues with your brakes.
HOW DO I DISPOSE OF DRIVETRAIN CLEANER?
We do not advise disposing of any chemical/cleaner down the drains or on plants / grass etc. The ruminants of degreaser should be poured into disposable towel/cloth and placed in waste bin. Where we say it's fully biodegradable, we mean that the ingredients are biodegradable (break down over time) vs a chain cleaner isn't biodegradable that doesn't break down over time. Both cleaners (by which I mean ours and another brand that isn't biodegradable) contain chemicals, but biodegradable cleaners contain a larger percentage of organic products which break down quicker.
Our Drivetrain cleaner is fully biodegradable to OCED guidelines which means it has to fully break down and degrade under natural conditions, normally in soil in less than 60 days. It doesn't mean it can be poured down the drain. same with any chemical. The environmental advantage to this if if you put any excess in the bin and it goes to landfill, it will degrade in under 60 days vs a cleaner which could take years or decades to fully break down.
