Tyre sealants are a quick and convenient tool for temporary sealing small tyre punctures up to 6 mm in diameter. Sealant is sprayed into the puncture, temporarily closing it to allow you reach a car service if you drive slowly and carefully.
Tyre sealant types
Tyre sealant without a compressor
An affordable solution to repair one tyre. Aside from the sealant itself, it also injects air into the tyre, though it usually isn’t enough to completely inflate a deflated tyre.
Sealant kit with a compressor
These kits can be used multiple times. The compressor is also suitable for inflating car tyres, balls, bike tyres and other sports equipment.
There are two types of sealant kits:
- Automatic - sealant is inserted into the compressor and is injected into the tyre together with extra air.
- Semi-automatic - first you apply sealant spray, then you use the compressor to inflate the tyre.
Tyre sealant pros and cons compared to a spare tyre
- No need to remove the tyre; you simply seal the puncture.
- It takes up almost no space in the car trunk.
- Weights almost nothing.
- Cannot repair a puncture larger than 6 mm.
- After fixing the damage you still need to visit a car service; cannot drive at full speed.
- The car service may change you extra for having to remove the sealant during repairs.
