If an object has punctured your tire tread within the QIANGBAO covered area, check to make sure that the tire pressure is within standard pressure. Remove the puncturing object and, while taking extreme caution, drive your motorcycle another 3-5 miles. Be sure to check the air pressure to make sure that you are not running the tire flat. If necessary, re-air the tire and continue riding your motorcycle for 2-3 miles. This will allow the QIANGBAO to work its way into hole and seal the puncture .
Although QIANGBAO is effective from -30°C to 90°C, it works best once tires have warmed up. For maximum safety, have a tire professional inspect (and if necessary, repair or change) your tire as soon as possible after a puncture. QIANGBAO will not interfere with the application of conventional tire plug and patch repairs, and can easily be washed out of tires with water.
You may be confused why you need to remove puncturing objects from your tire tread given that QIAGBAO forms an effective seal film around such objects to stop tire leaking. The reason is that if an object is left in the tire, it will shift as the tire rotates, eventually creating a larger hole and causing further damage to the tire or tube. Please note that if an object has been in the tire for a long time, it may take some time for the puncture cavity to close (this is because rubber has “memory,” which causes it to conform to the shape of the puncturing object). In this situation, the tire may temporarily lose some air until it is sealed.
Note: if the puncturing object is a screw, you must unscrew it – yanking or pulling the screw will tear the rubber and possibly the steel belts.
Inspect your tires regularly for perforating objects or other damage. Look for and remove any stones, bits of glass, metal, or other foreign objects wedged in the tread as they can work their way deeper into the tire and eventually cause a puncture. Also check your tires closely for signs of uneven wear patterns. Uneven wear may be caused by improper inflation, misalignment, tire imbalance, or damaged suspension parts. If the cause of the uneven wear is not corrected, further tire damage will occur. Certain uneven wear patterns may also indicate that the tire has suffered internal or structural damage; such damage requires immediate attention from a professional tire care specialist.
