Functioning and technology
The abrasion of the lubricant that occurs through contact with the chain while pedaling results in lubrication. This abrasion transfers the lubricant to the chain, where it is further distributed to the rest of the chain and the chain wheels thanks to its creeping ability. This results in a thin lubricating film arising on the entire chain drive. Its creeping ability also ensures that the lubricant moves between the roller and pins, ensuring the necessary lubrication there as well. The solid lubricant is not water-soluble, but it is washed off with water, as it adheres to surfaces physically in the form of very thin, small plates. The chain is also lubricated in the rain through continual reapplication while riding.
