CF3 Re-useable lube spray
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.
The CF3 however is different.
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 It doesn't use CFCs, which damage the ozone layer, but in reality these are never used today anyway, and have been replaced by other propellant gases.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.
