Heavy duty commercial tyre sealant 20-litre drum. Commercial heavy duty tyre sealant designed for use in all aspects of commercial applications from general highway haulage to off-road applications. Proven product within the waste transfer / skip hire / muck away & construction vehicles.
Drivesafe commercial tyre sealant is a gel which is installed into the tyre via the tyre valve. As the wheel starts to rotate the gel starts to distribute itself around the inside of the tyre. Within a few miles the product has applied a protective coating on the inner crown section of the tyre. The protective coating has several benefits as it prevents air migration through the casing, this also seals the casing against porosity leaks.This is a common problem associated with tubeless tyres over a period of time due to the high operating pressures and heavy loads they carry forces the air to migrate through the casing. The protective gel coating which is applied to the inside of the tyre helps to prevent this from occurring and ensures maintenance of correct tyre pressure for longer periods of time. This helps to maximise full potential serviceable tyre tread life in some cases up to 25% and reduces the possibility of the casing being more susceptible to a puncture occurring due to excessive heat retained within the tyre or even a tyre blowout. In the event of a foreign object penetrating through the casing and passing through the protective layer the air pressure from within instantly forces the protective gel into the puncture wound to give an effective flexible seal from inside. Effectively it becomes a self-sealing tyre offering extended mobility in the event of a puncture. By sealing the puncture wound instantly, this helps to maintain the correct operating pressure and eliminates additional heat build-up within the tyre as a result of operating under pressure. Excessive heat build-up within the tyre from operating below operating pressure increases the tyre's rolling resistance, this in return increases the drag the tyre has along the road surface which can have an impact on the overall vehicle's fuel consumption over a period of time by an average of 3-7% per vehicle. In the event of a large puncture occurring the product is designed to deflate slowly, this allows the driver to bring the vehicle to a stop in a controlled manner and possibly eliminate a tyre blowout. Probably a lot more effective as tyres with built-in sealants have their limitations with manufacturers claiming they can be repaired but most often this is difficult and time-consuming. An essential product for today's transport and general haulage industry where ever increasing demands are placed upon the company to deliver the goods promptly. Late deliveries can have an impact on vehicle schedules with perishable loads being rejected. Other sizes available please call for details.
