Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Can Tyre Protector be used in a tubed tire?
Yes providing the correct procedure is followed. But the installation cannot be guaranteed since the condition of the tube would be unknown.
Will Tyre Protector affect the manufacturer's warranty?
As Tyre protector is chemically inert and water soluble it does not affect the components of the tire and will not affect the manufacturers warranty.
Will it cause imbalance?
Is Tyre Protector affected by extreme temperatures?
Tyre Protector is used extensively in Scandinavia and Australia where temperatures reach plus and minus 45 degrees. Tyre Protector is not affected by adverse weather conditions, hot or cold.
Will Tyre Protector form a hard plug when it repairs a puncture?
No. The repair is designed to be flexible to allow it to flex with the tIre.
Why is Tyre Protector the most advanced puncture protection system in the world?
Tyre Protector is Glycol based and will not congeal or break down like many other sealants. Although there are alternative glycol products available they have not been effective in the extreme conditions that Tyre Protector endures daily. When professionally installed, it will not affect the balance of the TIre. Tyre Protector is fully guaranteed.
Why is Tyre Protector professionally installed?
Tyre Protector technicians have undergone extensive training and will only carry out installations on vehicles that have been professionally inspected. Treated tires are fully guaranteed for the remaining legal life of the tire.
What type of tIres is Tyre Protector suitable for?
Any pneumatic tyre.
Is Tyre Protector environmentally friendly?
Yes. Tyre Protector is fully biodegradable and non toxic. Furthermore, because it extends the life of tIres, it reduces the number of tIres that are retired or discarded due to failures.
