What is Tyre Protector?
A glycol based, water soluble tire sealant that when professionally installed will permanently protect tires against punctures and air loss. Additional benefits include extending the life of tires and improving fuel efficiency.
How does it seal punctures?
Tyre Protector forms a thin protective coating between the tire and the air within the tire. When a puncturing object penetrates the tire, air pressure forces the sealant into the wound repairing the damage instantly and permanently.
Why does it extend the life of tires?
A tire's biggest enemy is excess heat. Excess heat is caused by under inflation. Under inflation is the cause of 98% of blow outs. It can be caused by slow punctures or poor maintenance but Tyre Protector will prevent under inflation.
Why does it improve fuel efficiency?
When a tire is running at its correct pressure it creates less rolling resistance. To prove this, try pushing a bicycle or a wheelbarrow with an under inflated tire.
What is the lifespan of Tyre Protector?
In a tire, Tyre Protector will last for the life of the tire.
Will Tyre Protector damage the rim?
Tyre Protector contains corrosion and rust inhibitors and will not damage the rim or steel belt within the tire.
