11D Tyre Sealant is a liquid solution that is designed to prevent tyre punctures, as they happen. 11D Tyre Sealant is applied inside a tyre and will remain fluid, immediately protecting the tyre right when it is punctures.
11D Tyre Sealant can be used in any wheeled vehicle, with the exception of automobiles or other vehicles that travel over 80 KM/H.
11D Tyre Sealant comes in 4 different types, which each are different in viscosity and sealing ability. According to the tyre size, vehicle specification and speed – there is a sealant to match. Your 11D distributor, importer or dealer will know exactly which choice is best.
11D Tyre Sealant is packaged in 25 liter drums, for which a custom pump has been designed to fit the drum. The pump has a hose which fits on the valve of the tyre. With each pump movement, 0,25 litre of 11D Tyre Sealant is pressed into the tyre.
After using the application pump, make sure to clean it with water after every use. Store in a dry place. Smooth operation after many uses can be
Depending on the size of the tyre, a smaller or larger amount is required to treat it. Through the available applicational data sheet, you can look up the tyre that you want to treat and press the pump accordingly.
11D Tyre Sealant will remain 100% effective for the complete tyre life. When stored, 11D remains fully functional for a five year period.
It would definetly work, but a car tyre is carefully balanced so that it allows you to travel at fast speed. Balancing a car tyre is a careful job which is done by balancing the tyre with a few grams of lead. Adding a liquid to the tyre, which is free to move about inside the tyre – will cause imbalance to the tyre and shaking of the steering wheel.
A truck has a greater weight and more tyres to offer balance compared to an automobile. Therefore, any imbalance is compensated by the characteristics of the vehicle. In some cases, light trucks can suffer minor balancing issues on the directional axles.
No, one of the key components of 11D Tyre Sealant is a monopropylene based glycol with an anti rust capacity. This means that 11D Tyre Sealant will not cause the rim to rust, it does not prevent it either – but safe use is guaranteed. Furthermore, the sealant has no effect on the structure or stability of the tyre and it does not compromise any of the vehicles operating characteristics.
As the pressure monitoring system of TPMS is located on the inside of the tyre, and 11D being liquid – these systems might conflict with eachother, as 11D can block the TPMS sensor. External TPMS systems naturally do not face this system. Please consult your 11D business partner, vehicle specialist or maintenance partner before applying 11D to the tyre.
11D does not conflict with any rethreading procedures. Rethreading procedures (both hot & cold) can be carried out without 11D making it impossible to spot the sealed holes. 11D is easily removed with water. Allow the tyre to dry before being rethreaded.
11D does not compensate the structure, metal cords or in any other way harms the tyre. The product being nontoxic and non-flammable, it poses a safe-to-use environment to be fit with a new thread.
There are no extra maintenance requirements for tyres in which 11D has been used. In any case, tyre should be inspected on a regular basis for cuts, side wall damage or punctured objects. In some cases, 11D might seal a puncture with the puncturing object still present in the tyre. Please remove the object and repair or let 11D Tyre Sealant seal the puncture.
11D does not pose a hazard when being used correctly. Always wear gloves and safety glasses when operating near a vehicle. Should 11D come in contact with eyes, skin or clothing – be sure to rinse of immediately.
The financial impact of any tyre puncture is influenced by consequential costs, which add up to a large amount. These do not only include the cost of repair, but other factors like reputational damage, tyre damage, vehicle damage, emergency repair costs, labour costs etc. play a role in making up the total downtime costs for one incident.
