105 High Tech KETTENFLUID

105 High Tech KETTENFLUID works in four excellent ways

105 High Tech KETTENFLUID contains extremely penetrating detergent substances to get into the tightest fits, such as chain inner bearings or drive bushings. The particles deposited between the rubbing surfaces inside the chain are dissolved and rinsed out. Also externally the drive is cleaned of dirt, resin residues and other deposits. The cleaning component of 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID evaporates within 4 to 6 hours.

  • Cleans down to the smallest sprocket
  • Lubricates and lubricates and lubricates
  • Resolves what does not belong on the chain
  • Protects even the weakest link in the chain

Application

Instructions for use

  • Application cycle: 150 to 300 km, depending on the terrain and weather conditions
  • Application after the ride. Observe exposure time of 4 to 6 hours. 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID works overnight
  • No spray mist when using the brush
  • Avoid contact with brakes of any kind; possible loss of braking force
  • 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID infiltrates moisture, so the chain can be used immediately after washing the bike

Step-by-step instructions

  • By using the brush attachment, apply 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID to the small sprocket in the rear
  • Turn the pedals backwards in freewheel mode and spray continuously until 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID drips at the large bottom bracket sprocket
  • Allow 4 to 6 hours to take effect. During this time, the cleaner contained in the fluid is evaporating and a thin, non-abrasive lubricating film remains on the chain
  • Application by using the capillary tube is ideal for all cables, bearings and moving parts. Removes resin residues and dirt - sluggishness is eliminated

Interesting Facts

  • The use of the brush enhances the penetration and capillary effect. This guarantees a significantly better dirt removal through additional mechanical cleaning. At the same time the spray mist is minimized.
  • Application by using the capillary tube is ideal for all cables, bearings and other moving parts. In the case of guides, brake and shift cables as well as bottom bracket and roller bearings, resin residues, dirt and sluggishness are immediately removed. We recommend the brush attachment for application on the chain.

Frequently asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between "105 High Tech KETTENFLUID" and conventional chain oils and lubricants?

"HTKF 105" consists of a solvent combination (active cleansing and in-depth penetration) and our HIGH TECH additive which is homogeneously mixed with the solvent. In its original condition, the additive would be too viscous to penetrate the critical areas of the chain inner bearings and supply them with lubricant. In addition to its function as a carrier substance, it also serves as a solvent combination for cleaning. It rinses old, resinified substances, dust and dirt and resin residues from and out of the chain. After complete removal of the residual lubricant, chemical adhesion occurs so that protection against corrosion is guaranteed even during long rides in the rain. This prevents wear and resinification of the chain. Anti-seize- and wear and tear agents protect micro-welds,prevent excessive wear and tear between metal surfaces ans reduce abrasion under high stresses, for example when riding in mountainous terrain.

What problems arise when lubricating chains?

In order to deal with the difficult and varied conditions of cycling-racing and mountain biking - one of the most imporant an demanding tasks is to optimally maintain and lubricate the chain in order to achieve positive results such as easy gear change and pedalling and a long service life of the chain.First of all, a clean chain is the key prerequisite for ensuring that the lubricant adheres to the chain surface -in order to achieve an optimal wetting of the chain. Secondly, due to the precise fits between the moving parts, an extremely penetrating lubricant is required which reaches all the chain joints, inner bearings, drive bushings and pins in order to lubricate and protect them optimally.

What influences chain lubrication?

External influences, such as dirt and a dusty environment, cause dust particles to stick and abhere. The resulting abrasive effect causes a high level of wear and tear. Wet or damp conditions also lead to a corrosion of the inner bearings and drive bushings of the chain, which are thus exponsed to increased friction. Resin residues from mineral oils and corrosion particles due ti higher temperatures caused by increased friction have an extremely negative effect on lubrication. A conventional lubrication with oil and grease does not meet the above requirements. Their use leads to an increased energy expenditure of the biker, a very high wear and tear and a low service life of the chain and sprockets and thus functional reliability cannot be guaranteed in the long run. The combination of the right product, which meets all requirements, an the right care and correct application is the essential factor for ensuring a long and problem-free service life of the chain.

What are the criteria for optimal lubrication?

In order to achieve optimal chain lubrication, the lubricant must be able to clean the chain from dirt, residues and resin deposits and remove and rinse particles from friction surfaces. In addition, the lubricant must penetrate the tiniest spaces such as chain inner bearings, drive bushings and pins in order to ensure not only the lubrication of the surface but the complete lubrication of the chain. This provides a good surface adhesion without a sticky film, and without dust and dirt sticking. A permanent lubrication film helps the chain to withstand high mechanical stresses.

What happens if splashes of the product get on carbon?

A few splashes do not harm the carbon! As our 105 High Tech KETTENFLUID has specifically been designed for the chain, the sprockets, the bottom bracket and all the other moving parts of the bike, only these parts will have sufficient contact with the product.
For the frame and all other components we have a Bike Cleaner.
Our 205 Bike Cleaner active FOAM and our 207 Bike Cleaner active WASH are also suitable for carbon and rubber.

What does "always use after the ride" mean?

"Always use after the ride" does not mean that the product is to be used after every ride, but it is not to be used before ride, as our "105" contains a solvent that needs to flash off for 4 to 5 hours before starting the ride.
"Application cycle: 150  to 300 km" indicates how long the lubricant will last or when relubrication is necessary.

What about the environmental compatibility of the product?

Basically, no oil, no fluid or the like should get into the groundwater. For this reason, we recommend plcing a cardboard box underneath during the application.

Is it possible to retrofit the brush attachment and purchase it without a can?

Of course. You can also buy the brush separately in our online shop .

Is the product also suitable for use on a motorbike?

105 High Tech KETTENFLUID is ideal for cleaning ALL chains. It is also gentle on all O-rings and X-ring chains. However, since it has a creep effect and dissolves and removes not only dirt but also grease, you will need a motorbike lubricant which also hat creep properties. For this reason, we always offer our 105 on the bike market. We do not recommend using it for the lubrication of the motorbike chains as the adhesion is too low.
