ContiSeal self-sealing technology makes way to van tyre range

Self-sealing technology said to reliably seal around 90% of all potential cases of punctures to the tread is now being rolled out on Continental’s van tyre ranges.

The VanContact 100 tyre in size 215/65 R 16 C is now also available with ContiSeal technology

Already offered in the car range, the technology seals smaller holes in the tyre tread – with a diameter of up to five millimeters – with no loss of tyre pressure, it’s claimed; enabling van operators to benefit from reduced downtime due to punctures.

It’s already available with the VanContact 100 tyre in size 215/65 R 16 C and will be rolled out to Continental’s winter and all-season tyres for vans.

“Punctures caused by nails or screws generally mean added costs for transport companies,” said Jan-Ole van Lengen, product manager van and light commercial vehicle tires EMEA at Continental. “Even smaller punctures lead to vehicle downtimes or the costly and complicated business of transferring the load to another vehicle. ContiSeal technology can reliably seal around 90% of all potential cases of punctures to the tread.”
