Spray convenience, without the PTFE headaches
The CF3 re-usable lube spray lets you spray Green Oil onto your bike. It can also be used with Green Oil Dry Chain Wax, or Clean Chain Degreaser Jelly.
It uses air pressure rather than harmful propellants:
- No VOCs
- No isobutane
- Incredible spray performance
- Easy to use
Why use a CF3?
Every workshop has a spray can these days. Simply, its quick and easy to spray lube onto a bike when servicing it.
However, most spray cans are difficult to recycle and they contain numerous toxic nasties, including PTFE/Teflon.
This is not only bad for 'the environment', but the immediate workshop environment, and therefore your health. Other spray lubes specifically say, 'only use in a well ventilated area' because they are so harmful. Yet, in most workshops, the windows cannot be open all the time - it would get cold.
So staff in bike workshops breath in isobutane, PTFE, airborn petrochemicals and it's not good.
Firstly, it doesn't use isobutane or other harmful propellants. It doesn't use CFCs, which damage the ozone layer, but in reality these are never used today anyway, and have been replaced by other propellant gases. The CF3 uses natural air pressure. Air pressure is created by pumping the cap up and down around 25 times for a good long spray. When the pressure runs out, you can pump up again.
Secondly, its re-usable. The top unscrews so you can re-fill it with Green Oil again and again.
Thirdly, you can take it on a plane unlike other spray lubes. It's also just 100ml. We don't want to promote flying too often, with the climate change in mind of course, but unlike other aerosols, you can take your CF3, unpressurised on a jet. Under most authorities, if it contains less than 100ml you could even take it in your hand luggage.
Fourthly, the contents are green. Other spray lubes have a toxic combination of petrochemicals, Teflon and propellant gas. These things are potentially even more harmful when airborne - the result of the aerosol spray. The CF3 however can be used with our award winning, eco friendly Green Oil Wet Chain Lube formula.
CF3 can also be filled with Green Oil Dry Chain Wax, or our degreaser with 30ml water. The 30ml water dilutes the thick gel and turns it into a degreasing foam when sprayed.
The CF3 is practical, simple, good for the environment, and good for your health.
