⚠️ WAIT, IS THAT PLASTIC GLITTER?!
Hell no! No micro-plastics or microfibres here… The platelets in our sealant are BioGlitter made from a special form of cellulose from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™ www.pefc.org standards. They work like platelets in your blood, building up behind holes to help our fast-acting sealant form an even stronger bond with the rubber in your tyre.
🛠️ PEATY’S TOP SEALING TIPS
Make sure you thoroughly clean the inside of your tyres of any dirt, oil and other sealants before you first set up tubeless. New tyres are often coated on the inside with residual chemicals from the manufacturing process (specifically release agents) which can react with tubeless sealant and cause it to solidify prematurely.
Let the tyre dry fully after cleaning and wipe the tyre with Isopropyl Alcohol or our Disc Brake Cleaner before applying sealant.
Tubeless tyres rely on a thin lining of butyl rubber on the inside of the tyre to hold air (and sealant). Some new tyres (especially very thin/lightweight tyres) can have tiny imperfections in this lining making the tyre slightly porous so it is normal for new tyres to deflate slightly after the first installation.
Porous tyres may also absorb some sealant within the first few riding hours to help seal these tiny holes. In severe cases, you may even see these small dots of white fluid coming out of the sidewall of your tyre. This is fairly normal and should seal within 24hrs but if your tyre continually leaks out of the sidewalls then contact your tyre manufacturer as there may be a larger fault with the tyres construction.
It is best to check your sealant levels after two weeks of application and top-up any lost fluid if required.
