About the technology

ContiSeal™ is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal damaged tyre tread. If you experience a puncture by a small yet impactful object like a  nail, there is no need for an inconvenient and immediate roadside tyre change. With ContiSeal™ holes in the tyre will remain sealed even if the object that caused the puncture becomes dislodged.

ContiSeal™ is a sticky, gum-like sealant layer that is inside the tyre in the tread area. The technology seals 80 per cent of all punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tyres. ContiSeal™ tyres are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available wheel rims.

Technical instructions:

  • For optimal conditions, at Continental we recommend using a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) in conjunction with ContiSeal™
  • It is not necessary to stop immediately for a tyre change. Your journey can be continued
  • When you discover a puncture, we recommend a tyre specialist must promptly check the tyre

ContiSeal™ technology

Technical details

A ContiSeal™ tyre has a sticky, gum-like sealant layer that is inside the tyre in the tread area. It provides an almost instantaneous seal around any penetrating object (up to 5mm diameter in the tread area) in order to trap the air inside, keep the tyre inflated and you mobile, without any inconvenient roadside tyre change. 

ContiSeal™ technology

When a puncture occurs on a standard tyre, the sidewall can get crushed between the rim and the ground, leading to a potentially dangerous situation such as a blowout or the tyre slipping off the rim, which can make it impossible to fit a spare tyre.
