Frequently Asked Questions
What amount do I install in my tires?
The amount is dependent upon the size of tire and use. Off-Road tires should have more tire sealant installed than a tire used in Over-the Road application.

Is iSealTires flammable?
No. iSealTires will not ignite when heated to high temperatures, exposed to open flame, spark or other conditions.
What is the safety data for iSealTires?
Consult our Safety Data Sheet here.
Will iSealTires corrode my wheels or rims?
No…That said, in general; if you have a rusty wheel/rim situation it will not improve if you choose to use tire sealant. There are numerous reasons for this. The best answer is to remove all rust and properly paint or powder coat the wheel/rim before use of iSealTires.
Should iSealTires be used as a preventive maintenance product or a flat repair?
In the tire repair industry, there are many types of repairs, but generally speaking there two principal categories:
On-the-Wheel repairs, many times considered temporary repairs.
Off-the-Wheel repair, patches/plugs and boots, typically considered permanent.
iSealTires is an On-the-Wheel repair that last for the life of the tire. Not a typical temporary repair. An example of a temporary tire repair is the rope/string plug repair.
Will iSealTires prevent under-inflation?
Preventing under-inflation is the principal function of iSealTires. This is accomplished thorough sealing insidious slow leaks; either pin-hole, rim, bead or wheel leaks that are almost impossible to deal with if one is constrained to traditional tires repair materials. This also includes valve stem and valve core leaks.
It should also be clearly understood that under-inflation is the number one enemy of any pneumatic tire. Tire pressure that is at 20% below specification is considered to be running flat. When this occurs the sidewall experiences too much flex and is damaged, thus becoming a safety concern for operators and equipment.
Can iSealTires be used in tube type tires?
Yes, iSealTires is equal for maintaining tire pressure in tube-type tires. However, for punctures it is not as effective. Why? Reasons for this include poorly made or thin inner-tubes, improper inner-tube/tire sizing, or tube float when the tube is punctured. We recommend the three to four time re-inflate rule. In other words, inspect for damage, if no damage is present; re-inflate. Repeat this process three to four times. If that does not work, remove the tire/wheel assembly and have a tire professional inspect it for non-reparable damage.
Do I need to mix or shake the product before use?
No, iSealTires is designed not to separate, whether on the shelf or in the tire.
Is iSealTires absorbed by tires or does it cause damage to the tires?
No, to both concerns. iSealTires is inert to natural and butyl rubbers that are used in tire manufacturing.
Will iSealTires balance my tires?
We do not claim iSealTires to be a dynamic balancer. Theoretically, any liquid inside the tire could perform as a dynamic balancer. All tire/wheel assemblies that require balancing should be balanced before any tire sealer is installed. When tire sealant is installed into high-speed applications (40 mph or greater), the correct amount is imperative. MORE IS NOT BETTER! In fact, it is far, far worse to over-apply, because vibrations and dangerous situations can occur at high speeds when over-application is done.
Is iSealTires compatible with Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS)?
It depends on the type and design of the TPMS. The best answer is to contact the TPMS manufacturer or dealer where you purchase your equipment.
Are tires retreadable and repairable if I’ve used iSealTires?
Yes, iSealTires is compatible with tire repair and retread materials, just wash out, dry, and repair or retread.
For ballasted tires, what can iSealTires be mixed with?
iSealTires is compatible with water, anti-freeze (glycols) and calcium chloride solutions. For example: the recommended ratio is 1-part iSealTires, 15-parts water.
