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,
the product adheres to the inner tread section of the tyre more effectively and remains in place, 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 build-up
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.
Our product is suitable for a wide
range of application ranging from Parks and Grounds care, Agricultural, Construction, Industrial equipment through to heavy mining & Port material handling
What will the product seal in the unfortunate event of sustaining a puncture varies upon
several factors from the strength of the tyre casing or ply rating, the quality of the tyre 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. Premium branded tyres are manufactured to a higher specification and quality, therefore, superior casing quality and strength within the casing they are able to sustain penetrations and seal more
effectively, the product has the capability to seal what the tyre casing can safely sustain without causing or masking any secondary damage to the casing. No two puncture wounds are the same therefore you would need to take into account the foreign object size, the angle
of penetration and whether any damage has been sustained to the tyre casing, leaving an open wound in the tyre or whether the foreign object is still lodged within the tyre. Large puncture wounds the
product will reduce the rate of tyre deflation allowing the equipment to be brought to a halt in a controlled manner eliminating a tyre blow-out scenario.
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.
