No. The sealant is inert. It does however keep the rubber moist and supple, allowing for additional retreads.
Yes. Although there have been some reports that the Nitrogen can cause a sealant to dry out over a long period of time, Simoniz Sealtite Pro-Plus users have so far never experienced this.
Yes. We have never had a single complaint of incompatibility.
Yes. Our Ballast Boost formulation is designed to be used in ballast filled tires and those with Calcium Chloride.
No, the sealant cannot do this. The weight of the vehicle and various motions of the tire (backward/forward rotation, side to side motions) cause shearing stresses on its sidewall, making it almost impossible to seal a puncture. Sometimes though, in a slow-moving vehicle, when excess sealant is added, a puncture on the sidewall (where the tread area turns up and into the sidewall) can be sealed.
It will not seal gashes from a knife or glass and has some difficulty sealing punctures caused by screws.
It does not matter. Sealant can be injected into a previously mounted tire or a new tire before it is mounted.
Because liquid moves in a tire and changes position whenever a tire is rotated hence, tires with sealant cannot be properly balanced. It is recommended that the tires be removed from the rims, wash the sealant away, then be balanced.
Fully deflate the tire before pumping the recommended dosage of sealant. Re-inflate tire again.
After removing the tire from the rim, the sealant can be washed out with a hose. We have an environmental study conducted by URS Corporation which states that the sealant is NOT a hazardous material.
Yes. The sealant can be used on small wheel barrel tires to giant mining vehicle tires.
The warranty of the tire is voided only if its caused by the tire sealant. Sealtite even prolongs tire life by 20%. One of its chemical composition propylene glycol is being used as food additive and ingredient in cosmetic products.
No. The sealant will seal around the puncturing item. We recommend however that an inspection of all tires be carried out at intervals. Any item/s found to be imbedded in the tire should then be removed eventually.
Just remove the sealant way then dry the area with an alcohol swab.
Quantity is based on a formula using the diameter of tire. We provide dosage charts that can be used for almost very tire.
It will outlast the tire.
