How Tire Shield Reseal Works – Flat Proofing Your Tires
Tire Shield is pumped into the tire through the valve stem and remains in a liquid form for the life of the mounted tires. As the tire rotates, centrifugal force spreads Tire Shield evenly over the interior tire tread area.
When the tire is punctured, thousands of strong interlocking tire sealant fibers clot in and around the puncture to prevent any loss of air.
Aramid Fiber: The advantage of aramid fiber is exclusive to Tire Shield Reseal. This is a durable, high tenacity fiber that is 5 times stronger than steel and is used in bullet proof vest.
The video demonstration above shows our Gehl 4840 with pneumatic 10×16.5 Solideal Xtra Wall Tires which have approx. 100+ hours of wear drive over a 4′ long wooden board with three (3) 6″ spikes and one (1) framing nail we jokingly named the “Terminator”, pointing upward through the board. The first and last spike nails actually puncture through the tire, leaving green Tire Shield sealant on the spikes as shown. You can also see how quickly Tire Shield filled the puncture holes and hardened, preventing any further air from escaping.
We created this video on November 14th, 2011 and we are still operating this same machine with the same tires and have not once put a pound of air into them.
Stop by yourself and we will gladly demonstrate the power of Tire Shield for you too.
