Pre Puncture application.
Drivesafe pre-puncture tyre sealant is installed into the wheel via the valve
when the wheel starts to rotate the product is distributed in a forward motion which applies a protective coating on the inner lining of the tread area of the tyre which acts as a guard against
punctures. When a foreign object penetrates the casing and passes through the protective coating air pressure instantly forces the gel into the puncture wound creating a temporary self-sealing
tyre. By sealing the puncture instantly offers the driver extended mobility and allows the vehicle to continue their journey this helps to reduce the risks involved in roadside wheel changes.
The advantage of sealing the puncture instantly whilst the vehicle is in motion the flexible seal helps to maintain the correct operating pressure. This helps to eliminate additional heat build-up within the casing from operating under pressure and speed which could possibly lead to failure. By helping to maintain correct pressure it helps to maximise full potential tread life of the tyre, under-inflated tyres have an adverse effect on the vehicle's stability and handling at speed and increase in tread wear. Excessive heat build-up within the casing resulting from underinflation is the number 1 cause of tyre failure
The product is designed to seal approximately between 3-5mm within the crown area of the tyre. The life of the seal is determined by the actual damage sustained to the casing caused by the foreign object due to no two puncture wounds are the same. This is due to the wide range of foreign objects scattered on our roads, whether the object has been retained within the tread area or has been ejected leaving an open wound, the size of the foreign object and what damage the casing has sustained. A piece of glass would damage the construction of a tyre more than a small nail, the product is designed to seal whilst the vehicle is in motion. If the tyre sustained a large puncture wound then the product will reduce the rate of deflation initially eliminating the possibility of a blowout and alerting the driver to reduce the speed and pull over to a safe place.
With the use of tyre sealant, we would advise regular tyre pressure checks also visual checks for cuts or foreign objects lodged in the tread area. In the event of finding a foreign object which has become lodged in the tread area, it would be advisable to have the tyre examined by your local garage or tyre dealer at the earliest opportunity.
Drivesafe products are different from what is supplied with modern vehicles with no spare wheels. The product supplied with modern vehicles is most often a latex based product which once used it renders the tyre scrap as latex has an adverse effect on the tyre's inner lining and can be difficult to wash out, Drivesafe products are water soluble which can be washed out with just water.
Drivesafe products are designed for use in highway vehicles ranging from cars, vans, motorhomes,
motorbikes, buses and trailers & caravans.
Drivesafe tyre sealant is an effective method of temporary repair to the tyre, depending on the damage to the tyre casing the seal may last a week, a month or even the life of the tyre. Drivesafe tyre sealant products are non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable environmentally friendly water soluble product in the event of the tyre requiring a repair, the tyre can be removed from the wheel in the normal way with the product being washed out with just water allowing a visual inspection of the casing can then be carried out to determine whether a permanent repair can be undertaken to the relevant industry standards in the UK to BSau159.
Protective coating applied to the inner crown section of the tyre. In the event of a foreign object penetrating through the casing and passing through the protective coating, a combination of the rotating force and air pressure within forces the gel into or around the object creating a self-sealing tyre offering extended mobility in the event of a puncture occurring. In the event, the tyre requires attention the product can be washed out with just water allowing for a visual inspection to determine whether a repair can be carried out to the relevant industry standards.

To be used in the unfortunate event of sustaining a puncture offering an effective method of temporary repair giving extended mobility
This method of use is regarded as post puncture application, this is when the tyre has sustained a puncture and a tyre sealant is installed into the tyre creating a self-sealing tyre offering the driver extended mobility and reduces the dangers and risks associated with roadside wheel changes.
In the past, these types of products have little or no success in sealing the tyre in the unfortunate event of sustaining a puncture most often leaving the driver stranded and somewhat frustrated.
These type of products are available in either an aerosol or a canister and are most often a latex based product which has an adverse effect upon the inner lining of the tyre, once used renders the tyre scrap. The driver is then faced with the cost of a replacement tyre and an additional cost of a new tyre puncture sealant canister which can be quite costly for the driver.
Drivesafe emergency puncture tyre repair sealant offers a more effective seal giving the driver extend mobility with NO adverse effect upon the tyre, The product can be simply washed out with the tyre examined for any damage and if safe to do so the tyre can be repaired to the relevant industry standards.
Drivesafe emergency puncture tyre repair is suitable for use with vehicles equipped with tyre sensors.
