A & J International said its new Magik Seal tire sealant can improve tire life by eliminating underinflation and flats.
The product, a formulation of 18 chemicals and fibrous materials, is pumped into the wheel through the valve stem. As the tire rotates, the product is spread evenly over the inner surfaces of the tire and wheel rim, the company said.
Once installed, Majik Seal will permanently seal punctures of up to 1/4-inch diameter in the tread area for the life of the tire, the company said.
Magik Seal is non-toxic, non-flammable, water-soluble and contains a rust inhibitor.
