Drivesafe highway tyre sealant is designed for use in highway vehicles. The product applies a protective coating which acts as a guard against punctures, an alternative product for modern vehicles with no spare wheel in the event of sustaining a puncture offering extended mobility creating self-sealing tyres.
Pre Puncture application.
The product is installed into the wheel via the tyre valve, as the wheel rotates the product is distributed in a forward motion. This 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 tyre the 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 associated with 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 tyre from operating under pressure which could possibly lead to failure. By helping to maintain correct tyre 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 tyre resulting from underinflation is the number 1 cause of tyre failure
The product is designed to seal approximately up to 4mm within the crown area of the tyre. The life of the seal is determined by the actual damage to the tyre casing caused by the foreign object, due to no two punctures 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 tyre tread or has been ejected from the casing leaving an open wound, the size of the foreign object and what damage it has done to the tyres construction. A piece of glass wound damage a tyres construction more than a small nail, the product is designed to seal whilst the vehicle is in motion. If the tyre sustained a large wound then the product will reduce the rate of deflation initially eliminating the possibility of a blow-out and allowing 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 within the tyre tread. In the event of finding a foreign object which has become lodged within the tyre tread, it would be advisable to have the tyre examined by your local garage or tyre dealer at the earliest opportunity.
Drivesafe products are different to 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 removed from the tyre with just water.
Drivesafe products are designed for use in highway vehicles ranging from cars, vans, motor homes, 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 tyre can then be carried out to determine whether a permanent repair can be carried out to the relevant industry standards.
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 new tyre and an additional cost of a new tyre sealant canister. The typical cost of sustaining a puncture could be anything from £100.00+ once the tyre and canister are taken into account.
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.
