My Slime tube did not prevent my tire from going flat. Why didn’t it work?

The Slime Tube Sealant inside your tube may not have adequately sealed the puncture on the first attempt. We recommend checking the tire for puncturing objects, removing any if found, re-inflating the tire and immediately rotating it. This forces the Tube Sealant to flow around the inner tube, allowing it to locate and repair the puncture. Slime’s Tube Sealant is not guaranteed to seal gashes from glass or metal, bead leaks, sidewall punctures or pinch flats. Be sure to check your valve to ensure air loss is not occurring at this source.
