Degreaser 13 and Pig Juice share a similar solvent-free base chemistry but differ mainly in power, viscosity, and price.

Degreaser 13 is more powerful and concentrated which leads to a higher viscosity and cost/bottle. The high viscosity makes it really fantastic for applying to drivetrain components because it doesn’t drip off and is very efficient. It is further activated by water and also requires a bit more rinsing than Pig Juice because of the high concentration.

Pig Juice feature a little less raw power but is pre-activated to make sure it flows nicely into tight spaces like chains and also to require less rinsing. Pig Juice was designed for optimal performance in the Chain Pig chain cleaner when used straight out of the bottle. It also works greatĀ for other degreasing tasks as well.

Our preferred application is to use Degreaser 13 and Pig Juice together for cleaning drivetrains. Apply Degreaser 13 to the cassette and chainrings using the Toothbrush. Then run Pig Juice in the Chain Pig on the chain, rinse the Chain Pig out, and run a again filled with water. Next add a little water to the Toothbrush bristles and quickly scrub at the cassette and chainrings to further activate the Degreaser 13. Finally give everything a rinse with water and dry with rag. Results are pretty incredible!
