Continental Seal Tyres Technology
Continental is the premium Continental seal tyre brand you can trust. German engineering that delivers superb braking, handling, performance and safety through technical excellence, innovation and design. Continental Seal is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tyre tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tyre changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged.
Continental Seal is a sticky, viscous sealant layer. It is applied to the inside of the tyre in the tread area. Continental Seal seals 80% of all tyre punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tyres. Continental Seal tyres are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available rims. With Continental Seal, you can set off on your holidays without worrying about a puncture. This innovative tyre technology immediately seals punctures, so you can keep on rolling – to the beach, to the pool, or wherever else your road trip takes you.
Continental Seal in Action: Tried and Tested
A tyre blowout can be a nightmare. If a nail punctures your tyre on the highway at a speed of 130 km/h, simply driving on as usual would be unthinkable. If the tyre loses pressure, the sidewall can get caught between the rim and the road, causing the tyre to tear away from the rim. Ideally there are no serious consequences and the tyre must simply be replaced. Prefer to avoid this hassle? Then you need Continental Seal Tyre.
Tyres with Continental Seal technology contain a thick, sticky layer of sealant inside which immediately seals off a puncture. At least 80% of all tyre punctures up to a maximum diameter of 5 millimeters can be sealed almost immediately. The result: you keep moving, and you don’t have to change the tyre right away. Of course, you should have the tyre examined by a qualified technician when you can. In case of a possible loss of air pressure when using tyres with Seal Technology, the manufacturer recommends using a tyre pressure control system.
You'll recognize tyres with Continental Seal Technology by a symbol on the sidewall. No special rims are necessary to mount these tyres. They are available in summer and winter versions in many sizes from 16-21 inches, and they can be driven up to 300 km/h (according to their speed rating), since there are no speed or mileage limits for Continental Seal tyres. This is a clear advantage over conventional Run-Flat tyres. And so, a number of car manufacturers like Volkswagen, BMW, and Seat are now factory-equipping certain models with Continental Seal tyres.
Continental Seal offers a simple solution to a seemingly small challenge that can create big problems. Drove over a nail on the way to the beach? No worries! Rolled across broken glass on the road? Your tyre has already sealed the puncture! Encountered a jagged rock on your road trip? Continental Seal has you covered!
On miles and miles of open road, something as tiny as a nail, a piece of glass or a sharp stone can cause damage to your tyre tread in an instant. Even a puncture smaller than 5 mm in diameter can lead to a rapid loss of air pressure and cause a flat tyre. With normal tyres, that could seriously disrupt your holiday plans.
With Continental Seal, 80% of all punctures are fixed instantly. A sticky, viscous sealant layer inside the tyre closes up damage up to 5 mm in diameter. With Continental Seal tyre’s technology, you don’t need a spare tyre or roadside assistance. Simply continue driving like nothing happened and book an appointment with us at Tyreseal. Simply keep on driving even with a punctured tyre.
