Tyre sealant and puncture prevention

3rd Feb 2016

In January, the IRTE Cornwall Centre hosted Len Collard of Somerset-based Air-Seal Products Ltd as part of its winter lecture programme.

Len, who had previously met with members of the centre at last year’s CV Show at the Birmingham NEC, demonstrated the Air-Seal tyre sealant which uses a water-carrying fibre technique as the carrier. This can seal any puncture up to 15mm on standard tyres, and on exposure forms a ‘strong fibre rivet’, sealing the tyre. An added benefit of this is that the sealant is completely reusable when tyres are eventually replaced.

The lecture also proved a chance for attendees to purchase the demonstrated sealant, which proved timely as several members of the audience had recently experienced tyre punctures.
