Tyre Sealant, puncture proof tyres for bicycles and cars

May 23, 2008

Tyre Sealant, puncture proof tyres for bicycles and cars, this is put in the tyre before any puncture. It helps to prevent flats caused by punctures from nails, thorns, screws and other debris. The tyre sealant is made from recycled materials such as rubber car tyres and bicycle tyres. The product is environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

Instructions how to use tyre sealant in your tyre/tube.

When the tyre/tube is completely flat you unscrew the valve from the valve stem then you squirt the sealant in the tube. How much is dependent on the size of the tyre.

Then you screw your valve back in the stem, inflate the tyre and rotate it to distribute the sealant all the way around the inside of the tyre. The idea then is when you are riding and get a puncture, the sealant inside the tube will then ooze out the hole and seal it while you’re riding. I have no idea how well it works, but that’s the idea.

Disadvantages are that if you don’t get it distributed properly it can adversely affect the balance of your wheel and getting a punctured tube out of your tyre is a messy process when you get around to replacing the tube. So I wouldn’t recommend it if you are speed racer.

An advantage would be that if you’re an off-road mountain biker (low speed and not in the mood to fiddle around with patching a tyre when you’re covered in mud, etc) you don’t have to stop and mess with patching or replacing the tube.
