How does ‘Puncture Safe Tyes’ work?
These tubeless tyres have the capability to seal themselves after a puncture. A patented Sealant developed by CEAT helps in achieving this remarkable self-sealing ability. CEAT claims that with the use of this technology tyres do not lose air when punctured with objects of up to 2.5 mm in diameter. The sealant will act instantly and seal the area of damage. CEAT mentioned that the sealant will last for the entire life of the tyre and there is no need for any special servicing. In a country where tyre punctures are so prevalent due to varying reasons like improper road maintenance, careless dumping of wastes on the road and more, these tyres will act as an attractive offering to the motorcycle riders.
