When a puncture occurs, Ultraseal immediately forms a positive and secure seal. In many cases, the puncture may not be visually detected until closer inspection. If a nail or object remains in the tire, Ultraseal effectively seals around it.
Ultraseal will consistently and repeatedly seal punctures ¼” – ½” within the tread area. The repair plug extends from the inner liner through to the external surface of the tire. The Ultraseal plug is pliable, flexes with the tread, and resists the effects of heat or water.
In the case where excessive heat, cracked wheels, or an extreme puncture damages the tire beyond repair, Ultraseal will allow air to escape at a substantially reduced rate, thereby allowing the tire to deflate in a slower controlled manner. This alleviates the hazards associated with blowouts, as the sealant will allow the driver to come to a complete and controlled stop.
