Pure is a new range from Weldtite, promising to provide natural, renewable and biodegradable eco cleaning and lubrication products – and we’ve just been sent a sample pack to try.
The range is made up of eight products and includes bike wash, bike protector, degreaser, oil, wet and dry lubes and grease – all 100 per cent free from petroleum based solvents.
“We’ve been making superb bike related cleaning and lubrication products for literally decades,” say Pure. “With only a little reformulation we’ve been able to make a range that not only performs really well, it’s totally environmentally friendly.
“Whilst we recognise it may be a little more expensive (environmental products seem to be more expensive to make – why is that?) we appreciate some might prefer it that way.”
Pure’s eco-credentials also mean the products are made from sustainable ingredients (from natural and renewable sources), are biodegradable, with no propellants, and all in recycled and recyclable packaging. So how much more expensive is it? The full product list is below (including the product description from Pure) and we’ll report back on how it performs once we’ve tried it.
