Tips & Tricks

If it is found that sealing characteristics of PREVENT A FLAT MYO are not as expected, check for the following conditions:

A) Oily or lubricated puncturing object

B) Lack of tyre sealant

C) Sidewall puncture continues to work to break the seal

D) Rips, tears or cord damage

E) Improper tube size for tyre

F) Puncturing object larger than 6mm

G) Sealant contaminated by foreign material in the tyre

H) Perished tyre or tube evident by cracking of hazing

Over Inflation

With thin rubber tyres running high psi, decrease the pressure until the puncture is sealed, then increase the pressure to your desired setting.

Under Inflation

Balloon tyres found on quad bikes and the like running low psi, increase the pressure to allow a seal to be created, once the leak is sealed decrease the pressure to your required setting.

Inspection & Removal of Debris

Tyres should be inspected regularly and debris removed. It is important to drive the vehicle immediately after removing an object which has penetrated the tyre. The flexing of the tyre under load is required to work the sealant into the hole where it will form a permanent plug. If the vehicle is not run after removal of an object, the puncture may not seal and the tyre may lose air.

If you find that when installing PREVENT A FLAT MYO into your tubes the application tube becomes blocked:

1. Check that the valve stem on your tube is open. Some tubes have a restricted opening where the stem meets the tube. Remove the restriction as necessary.

2. If installation issues still occur, PREVENT A FLAT MYO can be thinned by upto 5%. Return all of your PREVENT A FLAT MYO to your mixing bucket and add upto 5% boiling water and mix vigorously for 2 to 3 minutes. Re apply to your tyres.
