Slime 10004 Tube Repair Sealant, 16 oz.

The Tube Repair Sealant by Slime is a gelatinous mixture that will fill and seal any punctures up to 3mm (⅛ in) in diameter. This gel is ideal for patching a hole in a tube for bicycle, motorcycle, or lawn and garden tires. This can seal multiple punctures over and over again and this will seal it faster than changing tubes.

This formula is non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-aerosol, non-flammable and water soluble. This is great for patching tubed tires on the go so you can get back out there. The one downside is that the tube will be rendered mostly irreparable by a professional after the use of slime. This is a DIY temporary fix at best, and shouldn’t be expected to keep your tubes in working condition. Use this as a temporary solution until you can get new tubes ordered and installed.
