A silicone based string wax which lubricates and increases bowstring life and enhances string performance and helps prevent fraying.
Especially designed and recommended for high tensile bowstrings and cables. Seal-Tite resists penetration by water and keeps moisture out of the bow string and protects critical string fibres. It greatly reduces string friction and abrasion against cable slides, wheels and cams. Penetrates into string fibres without damaging the string.
Always be sure to include areas of the string that are served. This helps to keep the bowstring from moving inside the serving, minimising wear.
Will remain sticky enough to hold strands together and will not become tacky under any weather conditions. Seal-Tite has the right degree of tackiness when warmed by rubbing on the string to hold fibres together, but not sticky when allowed to cool to room temperature and will not freeze or become brittle.
While Seal-Tite is a silicone based wax, Tex-Tite is a natural based bowstring wax, but both work great in keeping your bowstring from drying out. Seal-Tite provides a "sticky" coating and Tex-Tite provides a "tacky" coating.
- To wax your string, firstly remove any contaminants such as dust, dirt and old wax from your bowstring. Clean off any dirt or grime build-up on your string with a clean, soft cloth. Waxing strings without first cleaning them will drive dirty wax deeper into the string, causing premature string wear and unwanted friction within the string.
- Then apply the wax stick up and down on all areas of the bow string and cable and include areas of the string that are served which helps to keep the bowstring from moving inside the serving and minimises wear.
- With your index finger and thumb, vigorously work the wax into the string and cable, going from one end to the other.
- Remove any excess or residual wax with a cloth.
Bowstrings and cables eventually fray from constant contact with each other or brushing against branches, long grass or reeds and other abrasive surfaces. To minimise fraying, it is highly desirable to regularly lubricate the string and cables with a liberal coat of string wax. If you ever inadvertently cut or nick a string with a broadhead or see visible fraying, replace the string immediately.

- Keeps bowstring from drying out
- Comes in a convenient 7.5cm or 3" push out tube, 28.4gm or one ounce
Well known bowhunter and host of American Archer, Tom Nelson says "Besides lubricating your bowstring and enhancing your string's life span, Seal-Tite wax can also help with your nocks whether installing nocks from scratch or replacing nocks or installing a lighted nock. Either pulling out or re-installing some nocks can be a bit of a problem. Some nocks are very snug and tough physically to get back into the shaft. Take a little bit of Seal-Tite wax and apply it to the end of the nock and you can easily, with little effort, snug that nock right back into place. It makes a very easy, quick change, something helpful and easy to do."
