How to Install
1. Remove the silver valve remover from the clear tube on the side of the bottle.
2.Remove the valve core from the valve stem.
3. Snip the bottles resealable cap 3mm from the end.
4. Rotate the tyre to 7 O'clock & apply the appropriate amount of GOO.
5. Right the bottle and squeeze to clear the valve stem of remaining GOO.
6. Replace the valve core & inflate the tyre to the tyre manufacturer's maximum pressure.
7. Rock tyre back & forth over the punctured area till puncture takes up.
8. Use vehicle until tyre pressure has stabilized. Check tyre pressure regularly. If any irregularity occurs, consult manufacturer.
9. If using as a preventative, insert GOO into tyre and inflate to regular pressure.
Frequently Asked Questions & Tips
If you have a slow leak, apply GOO and pump tyre to maximum capacity and use vehicle at slow speeds for at least 15 minutes...the longer you can use the vehicle the better the seal will be, then adjust back to recommended pressure.
If you have a large puncture, apply the GOO and pump the tyre up to its recommended pressure and use the vehicle until pressure stabilizes. Re inflate tyre to manufacturer's recommendations. Repair tyre at earliest convenience.
True Blue GOO has a anti corrosive agent to stop it from rusting rims... but it will only work if you have enough GOO to cavitate down onto the rim. Most compressors do not have an air dryer on them so they are pumping moist air into your tyre resulting in rust.
- Does it ball in my tyres?
True Blue GOO does NOT contain any latex ( ammonia) based products, it does not dry out and with maintenance remains a fluid inside the tyre for the life of the tyre. Latex products ball up because they are act as a inner latex sleeve but once they detach from the tyres wall they form latex balls inside the tyre.
- I've heard you cant repair the tyre after it has been installed?
A common problem with tyre sealant is they have always been designed in the UK, China or America, these countries use oil based chemicals eg. Ethyl Glycol (Anti Freeze) using these reduce the chance of future repairing in tyres. True Blue GOO is designed in Australia, so does not contain any oil based chemicals!
Unlike Glycol based products or Ammonia ( Latex ) based products True Blue GOO has no adverse affects to the Rubber of the tyre or tube so can remain a liquid for the life of the tyre.
- Does it affect Wheel Balance?
True Blue GOO's viscosity allows centrifugal forces to spread it quickly and evenly, thats why it can be used in light aircraft. Unlike thicker Glycol Products or Latex Products that rely on maintained centrifugal force to spread the sealant to where it needs to be.
- Can they repair my tyre afterwards?
True Blue GOO washes out with water, and you can repair the tyre without chemicals or buffing. Glycol ( Oil based products ) slowly absorb into the rubber reducing chances of plugging or patching. Ammonia ( Latex or Foam ) Based products perishes the rubber ( after periods of time beyond repair ).
Because True Blue GOO is so versatile it depends on your own conditions to make it cost effective..Unlike other products that rely on a certain quantity to satisfy a tyre, it can be used to seal the tread, the sidewall, the rim or to seal a single puncture...It's unlimited shelf life means you can prevent punctures or use a small amount to seal punctures as they happen.
- Will it bind my tyre to the Rim?
Because True Blue GOO remains as a liquid for the life of the tyre ( like blood ) it only forms patches where the air is escaping, leaving the tyre integrity intact.
