All You Need To Know About Puncture Proofing For Commercial Tyres

If you own or operate a commercial fleet in Queensland or in Norther New South Wales, Australia, then you know how important it is to keep your vehicles on the road. 

Downtime means lost productivity and profits, so you need to do everything you can to avoid unplanned stops. 

When it comes to commercial tyres, one of the most important things to consider is puncture proofing. After all, even the smallest puncture can cause a major problem—not to mention a hefty repair bill. So, what exactly is puncture proofing and how does it work? 

Reduce Tyre Damage, Prolong Life Of Your Tyres With Puncture Proofing 

Puncture proofing is a preventative measure that helps reduce the risk of punctures occurring in the first place. It works by filling small holes or cracks in the tyre with a sealant that hardens when it comes into contact with air. 

This sealant forms a barrier between the tyre and the object, preventing it from puncturing the tyre. It is installed by lining or filling the inner wall of the tyre with a specialised gel or foam. This sealant material helps to support the tyre walls, absorbing impact and spreading weight evenly so that there is less chance of a puncture occurring.

Some commercial tyres come with puncture proofing already built in, but others will need to have it added as an aftermarket service. If you’re looking for puncture proofing as an an aftermarket service, you can ask Darra Tyres and their team can help you get it done correctly.  

It’s important to make sure that your tyres are properly protected against punctures before hitting the road. The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tyre!
