Technology in Tyres
Punctureseal is a unique liquid tyre sealant that continuously stands on guard to protect tyres against air loss for the tyres' legal tread life. Researched and developed over 45 years, Punctureseal helps protect hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide from punctures and the costs inevitably associated with them.
How does it work?
When a tyre is punctured, Punctureseal is forced against the puncturing object, or into the wound it leaves. Special fibres entwine forming a clot, which is forced well into and through the wound by the tyre’s inner air pressure.
When exposed to outside air, Punctureseal’s chemical curing process causes the seal to harden, becoming impervious to water (rain, snow, mud etc), and protecting the inner casing and steel belts by preventing outside contaminants from leaching into the wound.
