TYRE SEALANT USES...
Tyre sealant itself has a vast range of applications from highway passenger and commercial vehicles in the pre-puncture treatment through to all aspects of plant and equipment which often work in harsh and hazardous working environments where tyres are subject to damage resulting in costly downtime.
Drivesafe tyre sealant is a gel which is installed into the tyre coats the inner tread area and applies a coating. In the event of a foreign object penetrating the tyre casing, air pressure forces the product into the wound to give a temporary seal. All tyre sealants are classed as a temporary method of repair due to every revolution of the tyre the puncture wound will open and close on impact with the road surface.
As a manufacturer of a tyre sealant, we market and promote our product with safety first. By sealing the puncture wound, instantly
helps to maintain correct tyre pressure. This helps to eliminate any additional heat build-up from running under pressure which could possibly lead to tyre failure due to the excessive heat
contained within the tyre, excessive heat build-up is the number killer in tyres.
What is defined as a permanent repair within the tyre industry is the tyre removed from the wheel and the tyre visual inspection is carried out internally, this is for any signs of damage to the casing not seen from the outside.
By means of a temporary repair the temporary seal has no indefinite lifespan, therefore the seal may last a week, a month or longer. Depending upon the damage to the tyre, it will determine the time period of the temporary seal as the tyre will deflate over a period of time when the vehicle is stationary. This brings to the attention of the driver they have an issue with the tyre and needs to be examined and repaired to the relevant industry standard.
Drivesafe tyre sealant is a water-soluble gel non-hazardous, non-flammable non-toxic which can be washed out with just water unlike the other products available on the market. Tyres containing Drivesafe products can be removed from the wheel with no additional special equipment and washed out for examination and repaired to the relevant industry standards if the casing has not suffered any secondary damage beyond economical repair.

related issues ranging from punctures to blowouts can be significantly reduced by treating your tyres with Drivesafe products.
