Yes, PunctureProof can be used as a tyre bead sealant to permanently prevent air loss between the tyre and rim.
Yes. However, we are unable to guarantee its success due to the uncertainty of the quality and condition of the tube. However it’s best to just remove the tube all tube all together.
In some cases a polyethylene chip can create a blockage and prevent the rubber granules entry. Should this happen, remove the pump connection and allow a short blast of air to clear the plug reattach the connection and continue pumping.
Yes, There is no difference on the product with Nitrogen; it will help keep your tyres cooler as PunctureProof is heat absorbent.
Always. Even though PunctureProof has sealed around the object, if it is left in the tyre it will move as the tyre rotates and will create a larger wound until air loss occurs.
PunctureProof is tire pressure monitor sensor (TPMS) friendly in TPMS sensors that are hermetically sealed.
Yes, PunctureProof (the only tyre sealant company to develop one) has a fully automated pump that can pump against 200 psi and can pump 5 liters per minute. There is a another pump which is used by hand, and it can pump against 60 psi.
No. PunctureProof is chemically inert.
No. PunctureProof contains special adhesives that allow the product to adhere to the inner surface of the tyre except for a 25% residual which disperses through evenly throughout the tyre when the tyre is in motion.
Rotational forces acting within the confines of the tyre spread the product evenly around the inside of the tyre, coating the entire inside of the tyre, including the bead and rim area. Any potential air-loss areas, will be instantly sealed by, Puncture Proof being forced into that area.
PunctureProof lays down a thin protective coating between the tyre and the air within the tyre. When an object penetrates the tread area the air pressure within the tyre forces the sealant into the puncture wound
As it is chemically inert and does not react with the tyre components; it cannot affect the manufacturers Warranty.
PunctureProof is heat absorbent and works in all temperatures and conditions ( boiling point 120 c )
100 ml or 250 depending on pump type
PunctureProof is bio-degradable, and presents no problems in disposal before or after use. It flushes out with water, with no residual stickiness or compound remaining inside the tyre.
No. It does not require EPA–Environmental Protection Classification and complies with all TSCA-TOXIC Substance Control Authority requirements.
Yes, although PunctureProof has covered the wound area left by the puncturing object, it has not entered the wound; therefore the tyre must be run in order to snap open the wound and allow the PunctureProof to enter. Once again, the vehicle must be driven after removal of the object.
Many, of these products are designed to “repair” the tyre after the puncture has occurred and are usually a temporary “get you home” measure and after installation the tyre has to be replaced. On the other hand, PunctureProof is Pre – Puncture installation.
Puncture Proof is a thixotropic aqueous glycol tyre sealant that when installed in a tyre will provide protection against air loss for the full legal life of the tyre.
80,000 litres per day
As PunctureProof is Glycol based it will not break down or dry up inside the tyre, unlike many other products, which congeal and cause balancing problems and alterations to the rubber composition of the tyre. When properly applied, PunctureProof will not affect the balance of the tyre. Other sealants are not approved by regulatory bodies and without this your insurance will not cover you.
PunctureProof maintains air pressure, prevents punctures, overheating and porosity leaks as well as extending the life of the tyre.
Indefinite -as long as the container is kept sealed and no evaporation occurs.
The tyre is sealed to stop air loss.
PunctureProof comes in 25-litre or 1100-litre drums.
You can use PunctureProof on any pneumatic tyre.
No, the plugs design is to be flexible and conform to the flexing of the tyre. If the plug is hard and does not flex with the tyre, leakage will eventually occur.
No. As the tyre is an air- tight container, no evaporation of the liquid can occur.
No. PunctureProof contains anticorrosive agents to prevent corrosion from occurring it will also help to inhibit any corrosion on the wheel prior to installation.
No. It may seal the puncture, but due to the flexing in the sidewalls a temporary plug would be a safety factor only.
