DURA-VULC, THE SAFEST, TESTED TUBELESS TIRE REPAIR SEALS YOU CAN BUY
Standards Testing Laboratories, Inc. in Massillon, Ohio, an independent testing laboratory, took their “tough on testing” approach and applied it to an evaluation of externally administered tire plug repairs in tubeless passenger car tires.
Their objective: To evaluate the performance of tubeless passenger car tires that have been punctured in multiple locations and then repaired using plug tire repair material only. The test was conducted on four tires with four punctures per tire and fixed with our tire plug repairs. The tires, purchased at retail, were Goodyear Regattas. The tire size- P215/75R15-represents typical passenger tires. Every effort was made to use tires that would be used in everyday driving conditions.
First, the tires were punctured with nails that were cut, sharpened to a point, and driven into the tire at the proper angle. Proper angle was assured through use of a jig to hold the nail.[sc:endurance-test-data]
Nails were driven completely into the tires so that the head of the nail rested on the groove bottom. Tire/wheel assemblies were broken in for 25 miles at 50MPH. Tires were dismounted from the wheels. Each puncture location was marked, both inside and outside the tire. The nails were then removed, and the puncture material inserted per the prescribed procedure. There was no evidence of leaks found on any tire.
Prior to the endurance test, an x-ray examination was made of each repair on the tire. Repairs appeared normal and properly located.
Holographic examinations were used to identify areas of any trapped air in the tires, and were thoroughly documented.
The test included two indoor testing trials and a 40,000-mile roadway endurance test. The results: “There was no evidence of air leakage, either by bubble detection or air pressure loss, from any of the tires either before, or on completion of, the three different test protocols.”
