Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: What is Ride-On Tire Protection System?

A: Ride-On (TPS) is a high-tech tire sealant specially formulated to prevent leaks, seal punctures, and extend tire life. Ride-On (TPS) is designed to permanently seal most punctures in the tread area of the tire from nails, screws, thorns, road debris – any perforating object up to 1/4" (6.35 mm) in diameter. Ride-On (TPS) tire sealant also eliminates porosity leaks and reduces the rate of detrimental oxidation reactions inside the tire. Ride-On (TPS) helps your tires maintain proper inflation and run cooler – the result of constant air pressure and heat reduction mean increases in tire life of 25% or more (of course, this is critically dependent on how and where you drive your vehicle). Another benefit of using Ride-On (TPS) is that it stops slow leaks the moment they start, helping tires stay properly inflated, and last longer. A vehicle equipped with Ride-On tire sealant will benefit from better handling, better fuel economy, longer lasting tires, and most importantly, a safer ride.

Q: Who are some of the users of Ride-On (TPS)?

A: Inovex Industries takes pride in providing the most advanced tire sealant formulas available on the market. Ride-On (TPS) is the result of more than 11 years of research and rigorous field testing. It has been tested and used by the military, United Nations, Postal Service, police and fire departments, construction companies, commercial fleets and independent testing laboratories. Ride-On (TPS) tire sealant has been proven effective in the most demanding situations.

Q: What is the effect of Ride-On (TPS) on tire life?

A: Ride-On (TPS) tire sealant extends the life of the tire by 25% or more. Heat caused by friction and amplified by underinflation is one of the primary causes of tire failure. As tire temperature increases, the rate of oxidation and subsequent polymerization resulting in stiffness and chemical degradation of a tire also increases. Ride-On (TPS) coats the inner surface of a tire with an inert liquid layer that absorbs heat from the tread surface and conducts it to the thinner sidewalls which can dissipate it more effectively. This layer of Ride-On (TPS) also helps eliminate porosity leaks and reduces the rate of detrimental oxidation reactions. Ride-On (TPS) has been shown to increase tire life by 25% or more.
