New Dupont "Wax Based" Chain Lube?

Has anyone here tried the new Dupont "Wax Based" Chain Lube?

https://www.walmart.com/ip/DuPont-Te...11-oz/16672659

I've had good luck with the regular Dupont Chain Saver lube. I'm just wondering about this new stuff.

Or, maybe its the same stuff, and just the wording on the label and the shape of the can changed slightly???

I switched from using spray lithium grease to the Dupont wax spray. The Dupont seems to work just as well, but keeps the rim cleaner. The Dupont spray is more expensive, but worth it in my opinion. I have been using it since I bought my new Versys and have only had to adjust the chain twice in about 8500 miles. Be sure to lube the chain immediately anytime you get back from riding in the rain. The rain will wash the lube off of the chain and cause it to rust and kink. This is true of any chain lube.

Only place I have found it in Canada is at Lowes, was there in the fall, discovered like the Polaris Regulator, they doubled the price and changed the looks of the can, at almost $12 it is still a good deal.

Not as good a deal as WD40 for about $21 per US gallon...!
