Sealant for Ag Tires

27824SealantforAgTires

Slime’s Prevent & Repair Flat Tires Sealant is formulated for agricultural tires with the ability to instantly seal tread area punctures up to ¼ inch in diameter. When a puncture occurs, the sealant is carried directly to the hole. Pressure of the escaping air forces the formula’s Fibro-Seal particles into the opening, where they build up and intertwine to form a flexible plug. Slime cleans up with water and has a -35°F. freezing point. A 1-gallon container retails for $26.69 and 5-gallon container for $98.78. Go to slime.com.

Cor-Guard keeps engines free from damaging effects of worn-out antifreeze. The coolant is available in a concentrate (for radiators that have been flushed and cleaned) as well as a 50/50 prediluted form to top off a cooling system. It can be added to any existing fluid to optimize the cooling performance. Go to prestone.com.
