    First time I've seen it. I've used their teflon multi-use for a couple years and can't tell much difference between that and white lightening dry lube.

    Since Dupont makes Finish Line, I'm guessing it's pretty good stuff.

    It'll work like most dry lubes, you'll need to use it often and it will wash out at the slightest sight of moisture. Aerosol lube is generally a bad idea as the lube gets everywhere including on brake rotors and pads which contaminates them and causes squeal.

    I have used a teflon based lube like that for the past month but all the sudden my chain is getting really squeaky (yes i apply frequently) so i have switched back to a homemade motor oil, mineral spirits, and paraffin wax dissolved in. My next thing im trying is to do the wet lube, let it soak into the chain then do a coat of dry lube.

    Yes for a couple of months now. It has about 10x less build up than white lightening or the finishline dry wax probably the cleanest lube i have ever used. Sort of performs like the rock and roll stuff. Its a very very dry lube and does not quiet a chain down like tri-flow or a oil lube but its advertised for motorcycles so it must be doing something. Also I haven't used an aerosol lube in a while now and man i get it over everything.

    Application Tip: The nozzle top on white lightening bottles comes out. I discovered that when I drilled out the hole with a small bit and sprayed dupont into the bottle using the straw. The pressure popped the top off. Less hassle and waste than spray.
