ITW Global Tire Repair offers a range of best-in-class sealants that provide the highest performance with the lowest volume required.
In 2004, the scientists at ITW Global Tire Repair began searching for greener solutions for their tire sealants. Glycerin, a natural compound, derived from animal fats or vegetables was found to be ultimately suited to replace EG and PG. Its hypoallergenic properties were found to be a huge leap ahead for our customers. Another major advantage was the complete bio-degradability of the compound.
Glycerin also doesn’t dry out when exposed to air like existing PG or EG formulations allowing for longer shelf life in tires. In short: Glycerin is the most environmentally friendly of all tire sealants and is non-hazardous to humans. ITW Global Tire Repair’s holds patents for the use of Glycerin as an antifreeze agent in tire sealants.
