Kiln-direct Expands Plant, Production, Service

Multi-Seal Seals And Protects Tires
Multi-Seal is a preventive maintenance product that forms a permanent plug to seal tires in the event of a puncture. It is designed to seal and protect tires for the life of the tread.
This product is appropriate for preventive maintenance of rolling stock at pallet manufacturing and pallet recycling businesses, where discarded pallet nails on the plant floor or yard can cause flat tires that are costly to repair and costly in down time. Multi-Seal saves tire repairs, extends tire life, and saves labor and down time.
Multi-Seal is a system of synthetic fibers and fillers in a carefully designed liquid suspension. When a puncture occurs, the escaping air carries Multi-Seal to the hole. The fibers cling to the side of the puncture and form a filter that entraps the fillers. A plug is created, sealing the leak instantly with almost no air loss, and forms a dense, permanent plug.
A tire requires treatment only once for the life of the tread. Multi-Seal will seal up to ¼ of an inch. In eight-ply tires, it will seal a ½-inch puncture, and in 22-ply ties, punctures up to 1 inch.
Multi-Seal can be washed out with water if needed.
