WHAT ARE CERAMIC FIBERS AND PROPYLENE GLYCOL? WHY ARE THEY SAFE AND NON-TOXIC?
Ceramic fibers are the same as fiber glass. These fibers look like fish hooks woth barbs. Once they enter a puncture, the barbs hook into the rubber and the fibers clog the puncture forming a plug. NO ither fibers have these barbs. Other brands use paper fibers, wood fibers, rubber fibers. and more but none of those have barbs limiting their sealant to only seal 1/4 inch. Sealtite can seal up to 1/2 inch and more.
Propylene glcyol on the other hand is an anti-freeze. Anti-freeze used to be made of the ethylene glycol, but it is highly toxic to humans and the environtment. Sealtite then upgraded to propylene glycol which is not toxic and can even be found in food and cosmetics.
WHAT IS SEALTITE'S ADVANTAGE AGAINST OTHER BRANDS?
All sealants are composed of a liquid which holds/carries fibers, anti-corrosive chemicals to prevent rim corrosion, and a gelling agent to hold the sealant together at high speeds. But with Sealtite water and propylene glycol (both of which are non-toxic anti-freeze) are added to the mixture so that the sealant does not boil at high temperatures inside the tire when travelling at high speeds.
We are also the only company that uses ceramic fibers which seals tires bt clogging the punctures. There is no chemical reaction involved in the process and is simply the work of the mechanical bonds of the ceramic fibers to the rubber.
