How does it work?
When penetration occurs, the tire pressure forces PermaSeal into the wound area sealing instantaneously around the penetrating object. If the object self extracts then, as the tire rotates the tread area is deformed when in contact with the road surface, the puncture wound is forced open and the product is forced into the puncture wound by the air pressure within the tire.
Does it cause wheel imbalance?
PermaSeal does NOT and will NOT cause or create a wheel imbalance (if all pre -installation checks and installation procedures are carried out correctly)… As long as you follow our instructions and install the recommended amount (overuse can lead to imbalance) the sealant will spread evenly along the tire wall, adhere in place, and actually balance the tires for you.
Will it affect my tire’s warranty?
While we have obtained assurances from tire manufacturers that the use of PermaSeal will not affect their warranty terms, you should make sure to check with your tire company, as we can’t make any promises for them.
Is it safe?
PermaSeal is completely non-toxic and non-hazardous. Not only does it comply with all Toxic Substance Authority requirements, but the main ingredient, Propylene Glycol, is an additive in many food products (though you should never ingest PermaSeal!).
What about extreme temperatures?
PermaSeal has been extensively tested by RAPRA (Rubber and Plastics Research Association) and is certified to -45 degrees without Freezing and remains stable at temperatures up to 155 degrees.
What’s the difference between PermaSeal and PermaSeal Industrial-Grade?
The PermaSeal formula is designed specifically for passenger vehicles, providing enough liquidity to maintain optimal effectiveness, preventing punctures up to 1/4″ (6mm) in diameter.
We also have an Industrial-Grade formula designed specifically for industrial and commercial uses, such as construction, farm, trucking, and other large vehicles. The thicker, heavy-duty formula is for huge tires and extreme conditions as it prevents punctures up to 1/2″ (12mm) in diameter.
