What is Ultraseal?
Ultraseal is a tyre preservative & longevity enhancer!
Through Ultraseal International, Inc.’s extensive research and development effortsover 40+ years, our proprietary formulation has progressed far beyond the parameters of what is commonly known as a tyre sealant. Our chemists have developed an unrivalled concept: a preservative for increasing tyre longevity and safety. Ultraseal will convert any pneumatic tyre into a self-sealing tyre that will maintain air pressure and coat the entire inner surface of a spinning tyre without succumbing to the shear and stress, associated with centrifugal force created within a rotating tyre. Ultraseal’s attributes are unparalleled in the history of the pneumatic tyre.
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 tyre, Ultraseal effectively seals around it.
Ultraseal has eliminated the problems of most tyre sealants
Unlike most of our competitors’ products, Ultraseal DOES NOT:
- Dry or ball up over time
- Run to the bottom of the tyre
- Corrode steel casings
- Cause imbalance in your tyres
- Fail to work in extreme temperatures
- Void tyre manufacturers’ warranties
Ultraseal eliminates most punctures and blowouts
The number one cause of blowouts can be directly attributed to excessive heat generated from under-inflation. Additional problems such as tread and/or ply separation and zipper rupture often stem from similar overheating events. Failure to regularly check air pressure is a frequently cited cause. Ultraseal helps maintain tyre pressure, affords an additional margin of safety and usefully extends tyre pressure monitoring intervals when unavoidable.
Ultraseal lasts the life of your tyre
Ultraseal contains Thixogel™, the result of a proprietary process that protects the sealant against heat and provides the ability to perform effectively for the legal tread life of the tyre.Thixogel™ ensures that the Ultraseal coating remains in place.
Ultraseal reduces tyre temperature
Ultraseal has been tested and proven to maintain air pressure, reduce heat build-up and retard aging within the casing. These factors contribute significantly to reductions in tread separations and zipper ruptures and can add up to increased tyre life of up to 25%-40%.
The protective barrier provided by Ultraseal insures that tyre pressure will be maintained for extended periods and will run up to 15% cooler. Cooler running tyres meanslonger tread life and casings that are better candidates for retread.
Ultraseal protects against under-inflation
Ultraseal substantially reduces porosity, air migration and slow leaks. Tyre industry magazines, trade associations, tyre manufacturers and the Retread Industry all agree under-inflation is the number one cause of premature tyre failure. After many years of laboratory and real-life testing It has become a proven fact that Ultraseal virtually eliminates under-inflation caused by air migration, porosity and punctures.
Ultraseal improves fuel economy
By maintaining proper tyre inflation and thus decreasing rolling resistance, Ultraseal will aid in increasing kilometres driven per litre of fuel.
Ultraseal will not void tyre warranties
Ultraseal International, Inc. holds documentation from major tyre manufacturers stating that Ultraseal will not void their warranties. Ultraseal’s chemical composition is completely compatible with all tyre components.
Ultraseal works in all weathers
Ultraseal’s operating temperatures under normal conditions range from -40°C to +150°C.
Ultraseal protects the inner surface of the tyre
Ultraseal’sThix-o-gel™ forms a coating that clings to the inner surface of the tyre and wheel assembly providing protection at all times.
Puncture sealing capabilities
Ultraseal will consistently and repeatedly seal punctures up to 5mm within the tread area (HiPerformance Formula), 6mm (Commercial Formula), 12mm Heavy Duty Formula). The repair plug will remain positive and secure, extending from the inner liner through to the external surface. The plug is pliable and flexes with the tread. Ultraseal will not seal a tyre where the structural integrity is severely damaged or weakened. It will attempt to slow the escaping air contributing to the vehicles ability to come to a controlled stop. Ultraseal’s polymer fiber matrix resists the effects of heat or water. Ultraseal will not mask a dangerous situation such as a cracked wheel, damaged casing or tread separation.
Ultraseal will not mask or hide damage that could affect the safety of the wheel and tyre. Ultraseal cannot repair major damage to a tyre’s structure or a cracked wheel, but instead allows air to escape at a substantially reduced rate, thereby allowing the tyre to deflate in a slower controlled manner. This alleviates the hazards associated with blowouts.
Ultraseal protects against rust and corrosion
Ultraseal contains a complete rust and corrosion inhibiting system that not only protects steel and alloy wheels, but protects steel belts. Outside contaminants entering through a wound can cause steel belts to rust and plies to separate. Ultraseal prevents this from occurring. Without Ultraseal protection, outside contaminants can destroy valuable casings.
Ultraseal retards dry rot/casing degradation
Ultraseal’s proprietary formulation contains ingredients that retard dry rot and aging from within the tyre, which increases the life of any tubeless tyre casing.
