DRIVESAFE products are specifically designed for wide range of equipment ranging from small parks and ground care equipment to the larger heavier industrial equipment operating in harsh working environments, where punctures and other related issues are a regular occurrence resulting in costly equipment downtime.
Drivesafe heavy duty tyre sealant is a GEL like consistency which makes our product unique from other products available on the
market today. Being a GEL rather than a fluid, our product contain special adhesives which make the gel adheres to the inner tread section of the tyre more effectively and remains in place for
the life of the casing, this is far more effective in the event of sustaining a puncture compared to the fluid-based products wash about within the tyre and most often wash away from the
puncture wound resulting in deflation.
The product is installed into the wheel via the valve when the wheel starts to rotate the product is evenly distributed across the inner tread section of the tyre where it applies a protective coating. When a foreign object penetrates the tyre casing and passes through the protective coating the air pressure from within instantly forces the product into the wound to form an effective flexible seal. By sealing the puncture as it occurs allows the equipment to continue minimising costly equipment downtime and loss of productivity.
The protective coating applied to the inner crown section of the tyre has several benefits, this helps to maintain correct operating pressures for longer periods of time which helps to eliminate against underinflation which helps to prolong the serviceable tread life of the tyre and reducing overall operating costs. Heat build-up due to underinflation is often underlying cause for excessive tread wear and rubber degradation but it's an unavoidable result of deep tread, long duty cycles, high speeds and surface friction, excessive heat build-up the tyres are more prone to damage and punctures. Drivesafe products are not affected by heat buildup within the tyre and do not dry out or separate after a short period of time, this is a common problem with many inferior products on the market today.
Drivesafe products are suitable for a wide range of applications ranging from Parks and Grounds care, Agricultural, Construction, Industrial equipment through to heavy mining & Port material handling equipment.
What will the product seal in the unfortunate event of sustaining a puncture will vary upon several factors from the strength of the tyre casing or ply rating, the quality of the casing construction with this we refer to imported or premium brands and the overall integrity of the casing will determine the sealing capability of the product and lifespan of the seal, the product has the capability to seal what the casing can safely sustain without causing or masking any secondary damage. Due to no two puncture wounds are the same therefore you would need to take into account the size of the foreign object, the angle of penetration and whether any damage has been sustained to the casing, whether the foreign object is still lodged within the tread area or whether the foreign object has been ejected and leaving an open wound in the tread area. Large puncture wounds the product will reduce the rate of deflation allowing the equipment to be brought to a halt in a controlled manner eliminating a possible casing failure.
Drivesafe products are water-soluble environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable. In the event of the tyre sustaining major impact damage, the product can be removed from the tyre with just water or by cleaning the area and preparing the area in the normal way to repair to the relevant industry standards.
Drivesafe heavy duty PLUS+ can be used as an effective method of puncture repair. This helps to significantly reduce costly equipment downtime as the equipment can be back in use within minutes. Typical cost of treatment is normally less than the cost of 1 puncture repair, call 01527 510865 or email email@example.com
Drivesafe products can be supplied by the pallet for small or large plant hire companies at discounted rates in 20-litre drums. Drivesafe products are a gel-like consistency with additional strength and greater elasticity to adhere more effectively to the inner tread section of the tyre giving greater sealing capabilities compared to other products.
Our product is suitable for use in heavier industrial equipment such as...
Wheeled Loaders, Rigid And Articulated dumpers, Straddle carriers, Reach Stackers, Graders, mobile cranes, commercial vehicles
