Punctures are no joke. They are costly, time wasting and not least, can be very dangerous.
From just £12.50 (plus vat) per tyre, Armitage's can protect you against the misery that a
puncture can and does bring.
Think how many times you have cringed when you have seen someone pressed up against
the side of a vehicle on the motorway hard shoulder, trying to change a wheel as 40-tonners
whiz past, just inches away; how often you have seen a family's enitre holiday packing stacked
on a grass verge while dad drags the spare out from under the floor of the boot?
Inconvenient? Dangerous? Expensive? You bet it is.
Unavoidable? Not a bit of it!
From £50 (plus vat) for a car and £64 for a motorhome, Armitage's and Puncturesafe can virtually
eliminate these nightmare scenarios with puncture proof tyres.
With the Puncturesafe treatment pumped inside your tyres, the fear of punctures is a thing of
the past. As soon as your wheels turn for the first time after injection, Puncturesafe coats the
inside of the tyre to give you puncture proof tyres. Centrifugal force and air pressure force the
treatment into any screw or nail hole of up to 6mm (a quarter of an inch) diameter the instant a
puncture occurs, forming an immediate and permanent seal which is completed when the intruding
object is withdrawn.
£50.... In most cases, that's not even the cost of the tyre you ruin, driving on flat, frantically
looking for somewhere safe to change the wheel.
And, of course, Puncturesafe is not just for cars. Trailers of all shapes and sizes, motorhomes,
vans, caravans, motorcycles are all vulnerable to nails and screws...until Armitage's and
Puncturesafe get to work for puncture proof tyres.
Don't just take our word for it, look at what the Royal Mail says, now it has had
Punturesafe installed in all it 32,000 vehicles, after months of exhaustive trials of
Puncturesafe and its rivals .
The Royal Mail's Supply Chain Buyer says: "Tyre costs annually were considerable and downtime
caused by tyre-related incidents is a major problem. Our puncture rate has reduced dramtically
since we began using Puncturesafe and downtime caused by punctures has been reduced
"The Puncturesafe product lived up to all our expectations, so therefore they have now been
awarded the sole contract to supply puncture prevention for our 32,000 vehicle fleet."
Benefits and attributes of Puncturesafe
EXTENDS TYRE LIFE
Puncturesafe has been proven to maintain air pressure, retard aging within the casing, reduce heat build-up and increase tyre life.
PROTECTS AGAINST UNDER-INFLATION
Puncturesafe has the ability to eliminate porosity, air migration and seepage, thereby allowing the tyre to maintain proper air pressure, which in turn will prevent rolling resistance and heat build-up, the biggest cause of high fuel consumption and tyre failure. For retreaders this also prevents the inception of most tread separations & ruptures.
Puncturesafe has the ability to protect against the inception of tread and ply separations caused by air migration between the plies of new and retread tyres, thereby resulting in additional retread cycles and extended casing life.
RETARDS DRY ROT AND CASING DEGRADATION
Puncturesafe has the ability to reduce and retard dry rot and aging from within the tyre, which increases the life of any tubeless tyre casing.
HEAT REDUCTION (No. 1 KILLER OF TYRES)
Puncturesafe assists in protecting tyres from devastating heat build-up, which is associated with friction caused by under inflation, and/or overloading. Ultraseal contains specific ingredients that aid in conducting heat away from the tyre, by transmitting additional heat to the rim (which is the tyre's natural heat sink), resulting in a cooler running tyre for any type of equipment or vehicle, regardless of use.
Puncturesafe provides safety factors that are not found in any tyre. Puncturesafe will not mask or hide damage that has breached the integrity of the tyre. Puncturesafe is specially formulated to allow any serious puncture (potentially dangerous) to slowly deflate in a controlled manner. This attribute provides safety and aids in alleviating the hazards associated with blowouts. Puncturesafe cannot create a secure seal in any tyre that has major internal damage, regardless of the puncturing object's diameter. This is because Puncturesafe needs rubber recovery in order to work effectively. Cords play a vital part in rubber recovery, but in a puncture that has damaged cords puncturesafe and air will slowly bleed out of the tyre giving the driver a controlled deflation.
LASTS THE LIFE OF THE TYRE
Puncturesafe's proprietary process protects the sealant against heat and provides the ability to overcome the centrifugal force of a rotating tyre. Puncturesafe's abilities & performance does not diminish with speed, distance or time.
PROTECTS THE ENTIRE INNER SURFACE OF THE TYRE
Puncturesafe provides a coating that clings to the entire surface of the tyre/rim assembly. The sidewalls including every square inch of the inner air cavity, retain a one millimeter coating of the product (approximately the thickness of a 5p), thereby providing puncture proof tyre protection at all times.
POSITIVE SEALING CAPABILITIES
Puncturesafe seals are positive and secure, thereby transforming any tyre into a self-sealing tyre. Puncturesafe is capable of sealing tread area punctures caused by puncturing objects up to 6 mm (1/4") in diameter, as long as the puncturing object has not severely damaged and/or weakened the tyre's structural integrity. Puncturesafe cannot create a secure seal in any tyre that has major internal damage, regardless of the puncturing object's diameter.
WATER-SOLUBLE (for easy clean up)
Puncturesafe is completely water-soluble in its liquid state, and leaves no residue when rinsed with plain water. Yet it will not dissolve within a puncture after it has cured. Standard repairing procedures can be utilised without additional effort.
PROTECTION AGAINST RUST AND CORROSION
Puncturesafe contains a complete rust and corrosion inhibiting system that not only protects steel and alloy wheels, but in a puncture, Puncturesafe's proprietary process will also protect steel belts. Outside contaminants are prevented from leaching back into the puncture, which would cause the steel belts to rust and the ply’s to separate. Without Puncturesafe's protection, the contaminants would quickly destroy valuable casings.
CANNOT CREATE A BALANCE PROBLEM
Treating a tyre with the recommended amount of Puncturesafe does not provide for an excessive amount of product to accumulate in the tread area, therefore the tyre is not subjected to a mass of substance (common with many tyre sealants) that would create an imbalance. Puncturesafe cannot create an imbalance due to the unique ability to evenly coat the entire inner surfaces of the tyre/rim assembly subjected to normal centrifugal force.
If the suspension is worn beyond specified tolerance, or a tyre/rim assembly is not balanced and/or trued, the abnormal centrifugal force generated will have enough gravitational force to pull Puncturesafe off the vertical surfaces and collect in the problem area thereby increasing the "existing" imbalance problem. If the problem is severe enough the driver will feel a vibration. The vibration indicates that a problem pre-existed in the tyre assembly or suspension prior to installing Puncturesafe.
ELIMINATES MOST FLATS AND BLOWOUTS
The majority of flats and blowouts are a result of driver negligence. The number one cause being excessive heat generated from under inflation. The overheated, under inflated tyre becomes soft and can be penetrated very easily. However, under inflation creates additional problems such as tread separations, ply separations and tread ruptures. All of the above is primarily caused by porosity (natural air migration) which exists in all tyres to some degree.
Puncturesafe eliminates air migration and prevents the majority of damage created by under inflation, thereby preventing most related blowouts. The sealing capabilities of Puncturesafe are unparalleled by any tyre sealant, worldwide.
WILL NOT VOID TYRE WARRANTY
Documents from all major tyre manufacturers state that tyre sealants do not void their warranties. Puncturesafe's polymer composition is completely compatible with all tyre components.
COMPATIBLE WITH ALL RETREAD METHODS
Puncturesafe conditions the casing and retards aging. Plus, the ability to be thoroughly cleaned out of the tyre assures no hindrance for inspection. The product is non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable, does not present a disposal problem and has no compatibility problems.
