WHAT IS SKANUNU BEARING CLEANER & LUBE (BCL):
Skanunu BCL
is an innovative product that combines the toughest degreaser, rust and corrosion inhibitor, and all-weather lubricants into one powerful formula. It is specially formulated to simplify
the process of bearing cleaning & maintenance.


WHY USE SKANUNU BCL:
Using
Skanunu BCL has its benefits:
  1. It cleans all components (Shield, Inner Race, Bearings, Retainer, and Outer Race) of your ABEC rated, swiss, Biltin and ceramic bearing sets with its tough degreasing formula
  2. It coats all the metal components with a non-corrosive protective shield to polish and repel water & dirt without harming the plastic, nylon or rubber components typically found in bearing sets.
  3. It leaves behind a long-lasting non-drying lubricant that keeps you riding fast


HOW TO USE SKANUNU BCL:
There are two ways to clean your bearings with Skanunu BCL; ON-THE-FLY & DEEP CLEAN


HOW SKANUNU BCL WORKS:
FIGURE 1. There are many soil types in the environment but most of what gets picked up and reduces bearing performance are greases, oils and dirt (organic) as well as sand, silt and minerals (inorganic).




FIGURE 2.
Skanunu BCL is made up of 3 main components: a strong degreaser, metal protectant, and lubricant represented in Figure 2.




FIGURE 3:
When Skanunu BCL comes in contact with soil, the degreasing molecules instantly align themselves between the solution and the dirt at the bearing surface.



FIGURE 4.
Through a series of chemical reactions, the degreasing molecules surround the soil and dislodge it from the surface. This is how Skanunu BCL cleans. (Bearings have minimal surface area
and our degreaser component, again, is powerful. Soaking them for longer than a minute or using
more than directed is not recommended and will delay the next process.)

At the same time, the protectant and lubricant molecules in Skanunu BCL are activated and begin
to look for the disrupted metal ions at the surface.



Figure 5.
When Skanunu BCL is wiped off and the excess is removed from the bearing, the protectant
& lubricant are secured to the bearing surface through one final chemical reaction resulting in a
molecular bond.


Skanunu BCL can be used in any climate. Temperature fluctuation will not change the functional and performance properties of the product. If Skanunu BCL has thickened due the cold, simpily bring it indoors and allow it to reach room temperature. Then apply it as instructed.

Practically speaking, Skanunu BCL works like a bar of soap containing moisturizer.
You wash your body and the soap removes the dirt from your skin. You wipe and/or rinse off the soap and your skin feels smooth and moisturized.




ON-THE-FLY:
Apply Skanunu BCL on-the fly before a rain/snow ride, before or during a race, or when your bearings feel sluggish and you don't have the time to clean them thoroughly before a ride.

Apply a small amount of Skanunu BCL directly to the inner and outer bearing sets of all four wheels while they are on your board.

Apply 1Apply 2

Spin each wheel for maximum penetration
then wipe up excess with a rag. While you are riding, the centrifugal force will pull the remaining liquid out along with any dirt or grime. Reapply
as necessary.

If you get "spidering" on your wheels, you may have applied too much and just need to wipe
your wheels again.

DEEP CLEAN*:
Deep cleaning is the best way to get the most life out of your bearings - but it's also time consuming.
Not anymore with
Skanunu BCL! Because our product is an all-in-one, it will cut the cleaning process
in half. Simply follow the instructions below. Look for the copy in orange. If you have a different method
for this action, you can use it here.

Gather all the tools you will need to clean
your bearings: A bottle of Skanunu BCL,
a couple of clean rags, skate tool, safety pin
or small finishing nail, stand, and a small container. (Like ours or a GLAD® mini
round as shown.)

Tools


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
Put your board on the stand and begin to
unbolt your wheels from each truck. If you
have a preferred method for this, use it here.
Bolt Off

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
Once you take off each wheel, use the tip of
the axle to gently remove all your bearing sets
from the their hubs. If you have a preferred method for this, use it here.
Remove Bearing 1Remove Bearing 2

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Next, take off each shield from the bearing sets
by using a tiny finishing nail or safety pin and
put them aside. If you have a preferred
method for this, use it here.


•• If you don't feel comfortable with taking
off your shields, don't. Skip to Step 5.

While you still have your board on the stand, apply a little Skanunu BCL to your rag and
wipe off all of your axles.
This will remove the grime and will apply a clean low friction film
of lubricant on the surface.

Place all the bearings, spacers, and speed rings
in your container and put enough Skanunu BCL in to fill the inside of each bearing up to the
rim of the inner/outer races. Here, we used roughly 1/4 of the bottle - from the new
bottle fill line to about our finger nail. This is approximately 1/2 an ounce. DO NOT add
any other product or chemical to Skanunu BCL.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Close your container then allow the bearings, spacers, and speed rings to soak for a minute.
DO NOT soak overnight. This will give Skanunu BCL a chance to get into each set. You should shake the container during this one minute time period. Agitation allows our degreaser to loosen the dirt and grime and remove it from all the components.

When you open the container, you will notice
the liquid has changed from our orange color
to a dark orange/brown, depending how dirty
your bearings were.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Remove the bearings from the container one
by one and place them on a clean rag with the bottom of the bearing retainer facing up. If your shields are still on, no worries. Just place them
on the rag (We're just trying to get off the
excess before thoroughly wiping them down).

Remove the spacers and speed rings
and put them on the rag as well.

Thoroughly wipe off all the bearings inside
and out with a clean cloth. You are not
drying them, but rather taking the remaining
dirt-filled degreaser component off.

Your bearings will still feel wet after you wipe them off. This is because of the thin layer of protectant and lube are left behind on your bearings. This is what you want!

Wipe off your spacers and speed rings, inside
and out, the same way as you did in STEP 9.

Take all of your dirty shields and place them in the Skanunu BCL remaining in the container. Close the lid, shake it up, then wipe them off.

•• Skip this step if you don't want to clean your shields this way.

Clean your wheels and the inside of their hubs with your cleaning rag - the one that has a little Skanunu BCL on it.

Pop your shields back on each bearing set and spin them in your fingers to create an even seal.

Place your clean bearings & spacers back in your clean wheels. Re-mount them on each axle in the reverse order of STEP 1 - not forgetting to include those clean speed rings.

You have just completed the deep cleaning process. Your bearings and other components
now have the protectant and lubricant on them. DO NOT reapply Skanunu BCL unless you
want to start this process all over again.


At this point, you can go for a ride or put up
your board for the next time.

DEEP CLEANING KEY POINTS:


CLOTHING CLEAN-UP: If Skanunu BCL gets on your clothing, don't worry. Simply wash them in your favorite laundry detergent in cold water or according to the care label instructions in the warmest water recommended. Stain remover may be used but is not necessary.

CAUTION: Never use or mix with bleach containing products as hazardous fumes may be released. Never use with other chemicals as adverse reactions could occur. Avoid contact with
skin & eyes. Skanunu BCL may cause:
1) Eye irritation on direct contact. 2) Skin irritation on prolonged or repeated direct contact.
3) Respiratory tract irritation if large amounts of mist are inhaled. 4) Slight intestinal irritation
if large quantities are swallowed

FIRST AID: Flush skin & eyes with water for 20-30 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, move to fresh air. If breathing difficulty persists, seek medical attention.
If swallowed, take large amounts of water. Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention.

*DISCLAIMER: DO NOT ATTEMPT taking apart a bearing set if you haven't done this before or if you don't feel comfortable doing so. We're sorry but Skanunu Brands, LLC can't be held responsible if you ruin your bearings trying to take them apart. In addition, you assume responsibility for safety and use in accordance with the cleaning directions above. Our Material Safety Data Sheet is available upon written request.
