Several coal mines in Norway have been using tyre protector for quite some time now. They initially used tyre protector on a few vehicles to observe the difference. They are surprised to see that the tire protector has drastically reduced the incidents of break downs due to punctured tires. They gradually installed tyre protector in all their vehicles and they say that the gel did not just reduce the number of punctures; it even increased the life span of the tires. They use complex vehicles for underground operations. These vehicles run on tough conditions and a puncture when the vehicle is underground can be a chaos. According to them, after using tire protector, they have reduced the cases of punctures to 80%.
