Goodyear Unveils DuraSeal Commercial Tire Technology

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said Monday it developed commercial tire technology that repairs tire punctures when they occur.

Goodyear said in a statement its DuraSeal technology features a "built-in sealant" that allows truck drivers to continue operating after a tire is punctured.

Steve McClellan, vice president of commercial tire systems, said the technology uses a gel-like compound built into the inner liner of the tire and was designed to instantly seal punctures up to 1/4-inch in the tread area.
