TPMS, tire sealant manufacturers team up

Oct. 17, 2007

Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) manufacturer Advantage PressurePro LLC has formed a strategic partnership with tire sealant supplier Inovex Industries Inc.

"PressurePro's TPMS works together with Ride-On tire sealant to dramatically reduce the damage and hassle caused by unexpected air loss in tires," say PressurePro officials.

Inovex manufactures Ride-On, which it claims can seal 85% to 95% of punctures from objects up to 1/4-inch in diameter that penetrate the crown area of the tire.

"However, tire sealants can’t seal all punctures, nor can Ride-On notify motorists of low tire pressure. PressurePro steps in to immediately notify customers of lowered air pressure in such instances."
