Liquid Patch is a fibre based puncture sealant, which immediately and permanently protects both tube and tubeless tyres against punctures in the tread area up to 6mm (1/4") in diameter. The repair occurs while you are driving and is permanent. Liquid Patch is also environmentally friendly, non flammable and non hazardous.
How does it work ?
Liquid Patch repairs punctures from the inside out. When a tyre is punctured escaping air forces the sealant to the puncture site and repairs the leak creating a Liquid Patch. Some of the liquid will go through the hole to the outside of the tyre. When Liquid Patch is exposed to air, it dries and causes a permanent seal.
Does Liquid Patch affect the rubber or rim in any way ?
Liquid patch is chemically insert so it will not harm your tyre or rim. Liquid Patch will not break down or dry up inside your tyre so it will not affect the balance in any way. In fact it protects the tyre from excessive heat, which shortens tyre life.
Will Liquid Patch settle at the bottom of the tyre when the can is not moving ?
No. Liquid Patch creates a film of sealant, which covers the entire interior of the tyre and remains there at all times. Liquid Patch will remain in a liquefied state for the life of the tyre.
Will Liquid Patch seal a sidewall puncture?
Unfortunately there is to much movement in the sidewall of a tyre and this prevents the leak being sealed correctly
Are there any other benefits?
Apart from the obvious benefits Liquid Patch provides, driving with under inflated tyres means they wear faster and unevenly. This affects handling and performance of a car and increases fuel consumption. Under inflated tyres can cause accidents because they generate excessive heat, which can lead to tyre failure.
