Title: How Tubeless Tyre Sealant Work and what are formulations?

How Tubeless Tyre Sealants Work and what are
  • Since the advent of Tubeless Tyre
    Sealant technology, latex based sealants have
    been the most common option. While they are great
    at sealing punctures, they tend to dry up over
    time which requires periodic cleaning and
    re-filling. Recently, there have been several new
    options popping up making claims that their
    sealant will never dry. 

  • The current liquid, latex-based standards are
    fantastic, but if the new sealants require less
    maintenance, it could be a game changer. I
    decided that I wanted to test out some of the new
    competition against the trusty standards to see
    how they hold up over time.

  • In this test, we were sent shop size samples
    from four different Tubeless Tyre Sealants
    companies. I used a different sealant in four
    different tires, each ridden between 50 to 100
    miles per week. The test was done over a period
    of four months to see how well each sealed
    punctures, but also to see how they hold up to
    their marketing claims.

  •  I set up each tire using the instructions
    provided by the manufacturer. I also unseated
    each tire once a month to check sealant levels.
    In the end, I never faced any massive punctures
    or cuts, but each tire did see many small
    punctures during the test.Once installed,
    the Tyre Sealant forms a protective layer inside
    the tyre. When a puncture occurs, the internal
    pressure of the tyre instantly pushes the sealant
    into the cavity. 

  •   The special fibres and mica particles
    accumulate and bond to the rubber in the cavity.
    A solid rubber plug is formed through the full
    depth of the puncture hole. This forms a more
    secure and superior repair than a traditional
    plug that is inserted from the outside of the
    tyre. A traditional repair further expands the
    puncture and tears the rubber bond of the tyre. A
    tyre sealant plug is a more natural repair, as
    the mica/rubber particles and fibers closely
    mimic that of the tyres rubber.

  • Why does the Tubeless Tyre Sealants in the
    tyre remain viscous while the plug is solid and
    permanent?The glycol is the carrier of the
    fibres that form the solid plug. Contracting and
    expanding of the cavity due to the tyres normal
    behaviour, squeezes the glycol from the plug.
    This allows the fibres, mica and thickeners to
    bond and form a solid plug. The remaining
    solution in the tyre continues to coat and
    protect the tyre from hundreds of punctures.

  • Tubeless Tyre Sealants are a balanced
    formulation of glycol, organic thickeners,
    binding agents, mica, rubber particles and
    cellulose fibres of different types and strength.
    The water based glycol is the liquid carrier of
    the solution that suspends the solids. The mica
    particles and fibres, which vary from ceramic,
    wool and aramid (Kelvar), determine the strength
    of the solution.
