What type of punctures will Slime Thru-Core Emergency Tire Sealant seal?
Slime Thru-Core Emergency Tire Sealant will seal punctures up to 1/4"(6mm). The puncture must occur in the tread area of the tire since Slime sealant cannot reach or seal punctures outside of the tread area. Slime sealant will not seal bead leaks or large punctures.
If you are installing Slime tire sealant to repair an existing puncture, we recommend checking the tire for puncturing objects and removing any if found. Re-inflate the tire and immediately rotate it. This forces the sealant to flow around the tire allowing it to locate and repair the puncture. Be sure to check your valve to ensure air loss is not occurring at this source. Slime Thru-Core is intended to be used as a temporary emergency repair in passenger vehicles.
