Tyre protector creates a 2mm thick coating inside the tyre in the thread area. It does not cover the shoulder, valve or side walls of the tyres. The thread area is about 80% of the total tyre and this is the portion that comes in contact with the road. In other words, the tyre protector protects the entire area of the tyre that is prone to punctures. The coating protects you in the following ways.
The coating automatically seals the punctured area and you can continue your journey even without removing the object that caused the puncture. However, it’s recommended to inspect the condition of the tyres at regular intervals and remove the struck object. As soon as the object is removed, the tyre’s memory helps the punctures to heal automatically. Wondering what is tyres memory? Well, the capacity of the rubber to stretch itself to fill the holes and retain its original shape is referred as tyres memory. You will find the holes automatically vanishing quickly in new tyres but this capacity reduces with the age of the tyre. Moreover, delay in removing the object that caused the puncture can make the auto recovery process difficult.
The Tyre protector Gel inside the tyre is pushed out of the cavity created by the puncture. The gel clots in the cavity and seals it. This is a permanent fix and requires no additional repair. It’s recommended to drive for 1 or 2 KMS after removing the object to let the gel come out in the optimum quantity and seal the area well.
If you are driving the vehicle for very long distances (1000 KMS and above), it’s recommended to inspect the tyres when you pause the journey in order to avoid the chances of leaving the object that attempted to puncture the tyre for a long time.
The coating is distributed evenly in the tyre to maintain the tyres balance. It is recommended to align and balance your tyres before installing tyre protector. Though, the tyre protector maintains the balance of the tyres, it is recommended to balance your tyre through traditional method in every 3 months or 5000 km whichever comes first.
Tyre protector supports both nitrogen and the regular air. If you are replacing the air, it is recommended to lift the vehicle with a jack in order to ensure that the gel is not distributed.
The gel is water soluble and non toxic. You can wash the tyres to erase all traces of the gel in case you are applying for a tyre warranty.
If the tyre has lost the tyre memory, the cavity caused by the puncture will not be cured automatically and the gel leaks through the punctured area. In such cases, the tyres have to be repaired through traditional methods.
Tyre protector installation and repairs are covered under the warranty and you can get support from authorized service provider in your area.
Instantly stops air leakage in case of punctures, letting you continue the journey
Vehicle stays stable even in the case of punctures, no matter what your vehicles speed is. So, now you can drive your vehicle at high speed with confidence.
It’s recommended to drive you vehicle at the speed of 20-30 KMPH immediately after injecting the Tyre protector to let the gel set in
Periodically inspect your vehicle’s tyres and remove if you find any object stuck in the tyres
Check for tyre inflation
