Yes, it can be applied to any Pneumatic tyre.
Yes, it is both safe and legal.
Not adversely. OKO does not harm tyre structures or rubber. In most cases tyre life will be extended as it can cool the tyre and prevent air loss from the tread. OKO will actually reduce the possibility of a tyre life being shortened by run-flat damage.
No. There are special corrosion inhibitors in the OKO formulation that inhibit corrosion in steel & alloy rims. They will prevent the product from causing oxidation in brass valve stems. If any residue of OKO is touching the inner rim, it can be washed off when a tyre is changed. It is advisable NOT to use any tyre sealant with chrome-plated wheels as they are susceptible to chemical effects. (Check with your supplier: polished alloys may look like chrome, and they are OKO-compatible). OKO uses inhibitors unique in the tyre sealant industry. These inhibitors are entirely friendly to the environment.
On Road sealants are recommended for use on the highway, but users should maintain a speed within the legal limits. Off Road sealants are not for extended use above 50 mph / 80 km/h.
No. It remains liquid inside the tyre. It will seal a hole under pressure and then dry instantly, but it will not react with the air inside the tyre and turn hard.
We use our best endeavours to formulate products that are as environmentally friendly and as safe to use, store and dispose of as possible. No OKO product is classified as harmful, flammable or combustible. All are regarded as non-hazardous under the latest International regulations.
It seals holes in the tread area caused by nails, screws, glass, stones and sharp objects, up to the hole size quoted on the pack.
Not especially, but common sense needs to be used.
Avoid contact with the eyes; avoid prolonged skin contact with the sticky viscous layer inside the tyre; and, do not drink the product. OKO can be removed from the skin with soaps and industrial hand cleaners. If it gets into an eye, wash with copious amounts of clean water.
Yes. The amounts to be applied for any given tyre size are shown on the labels. Always observe these instructions.
Yes. OKO will seal holes in the outer casing and in the inner tubes as well, within the quoted specifications. There are reservations, however, when using inner tubes.
It should always be asked, “why use an inner tube if applying OKO?” Inner tubes are unreliable and the wall thickness is inconsistent. The quality of inner tubes internationally is poor. The inner tube can move inside the tyre. Inner tubes can rip when a puncturing object remains, and this rip cannot be sealed.
Essentially, OKO will function and seal holes without or with inner tubes, but the best combination for most Off Road users is to use a tubeless tyre with OKO applied. This is the less expensive and better-performing option for puncture free driving.
If OKO On Road is to be applied to the tyres of a heavy truck, then apply to tubeless tyres ONLY.
No. Tyres with OKO can be disposed of via conventional recycling.
No. As with any other tyres, drivers should check their tyres regularly for cuts, penetration damage, and a loss of air pressure. Checks should be made at least once per week, whether it is an Off Road tyre or On Road tyre.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems that rely upon a sensor inside the tyre can become coated by the sealant and will not give a correct pressure reading. TPMS systems that monitor the wheel/tyre from outside will not give problems. TPMS is currently rarely used outside the car market.
No. OKO is compatible with retreading methods, cold and hot cures. It does not have adverse effects on tyre casings or metal tyre cords. It is recommended that tyre casings are cleaned and dried prior to collection by the retreading company or before delivery to them. OKO is retread-friendly, easy to clean with water and does not mask the punctures and holes sealed. It is normally simple for “NDT” machines to find all the punctures that have been sealed.
OKO has been formulated to be compatible with all compounds used within a tyre. It does not pose any hazards or flammability issues for the retreading companies either.
