About Coreseal technology:
Quoted from tire technology international:
The Falken Euro All Season AS210 will be available to customers in two sizes, with its Coreseal technology capable of sealing punctures that are up to 5mm deep in the tread’s surface.
The system consists of a layer of highly adhesive, viscous sealant situated on the inside lining of the tire. If a puncture occurs, the bond then flows into the hole to prevent a loss of air pressure.
“Coreseal is a simple solution to a disruptive problem,” commented Andreas Giese, senior corporate planning/product planning manager, Falken Tire Europe. “Now, you no longer have to change a tire or wait for roadside assistance; you can simply continue your journey. Coreseal is a significant step in making tires smarter and more efficient.”
