Safety Factors

1) FKR maintains constant pressure at prescribed value conditions for each type of tyre, thus leading to a substantial improvement of tyre use through:

  • Eliminating loss of pressure, caused by punctures in the aforementioned limits and tyre porosity;
  • Maintaining an equal pressure in all vehicle tyres, thus the overloading of some tyres to the detriment of others is eliminated;
  • Optimal functioning of steering mechanism, thus obtaining a performant vehicle maneuverability to cornering (the response to cornering maneuver in case of underpressure, is inadequate, the return to driving in straight line is difficult, leading also to a change in vehicle’s gravity center).
  • Assurance of prompt and firm response to braking, through maintenance of the beads in the correct position on the rim.

Failure to comply with recommended tyre pressure shall indirectly lead to premature tyre replacement.  Incorrect tyre pressure in motion (underpressure or overpressure) reduces dramatically the lifespan of tyres. The three situations are illustrated below (Figure 1):

Figure 1. Tyre configuration at normal inflation pressure and at incorrect inflation pressure.

The underpressure generates:

  • Thinning, separation and detachment of the tyre cord fabric, culminating with the cord fabric breaking and tyre corrosion in the side wall, as a result of excessive side wall flexions;
  • Tyre overheating, leading to detachment of the tyre component elements, including the tread;
  • Advanced flattening, increasing tyre contact with the driveway, decline of tread resistance and implicitly, increase of vehicle fuel consumption;
  • Quick abrasion of the tyre shoulder, because in these areas the specific pressure of contact has the highest values;
  • Tyre detachment from the rim, especially at turns;
  • Tyre rotation on the rim, with destruction of beads at sudden brakes.

The loss of tyre pressure frequently occurs due to tyres’ perforation during movement, as well as due to tyre porosity.

The overpressure generates:

  • The decrease of road grip and fast abrasion of the tread center because tyre flattening and high rigidity determine, when overpassing obstacles or level differences, occurrence of bounces and increased friction when resuming contact with the road;
  • The reduction of shock absorption capacity, reducing comfort during motion;
  • The increase of pressure in cord fabric and the appearance of fissures in profile canals;
  • Traction power reduction due to reduced tyre contact with the road.


By installing FKR in tyres, two of the main causes of pressure loss, punctures within specified limits and tyre porosities are eliminated, thus ensuring tyre rolling at prescribed pressure, significantly decreasing the influence of destructive factors  produced by underpressure.

At the same time, damaging effects of overpressure occurred during hauling time can be substantially diminished through installation of FKR in tyres, which, by its capacity of reducing temperature, shall eliminate the cause of undesired pressure increase, maintaining a corresponding pressure inside the tyres.

  • Elimination of rolling on flat tyre by 80-95%;
  • Reduction of tyre maintenance cost ;
  • Elimination of stationary times, and loss of profit within this period due to flat tyre ;
  • Reduction of abrasion/destruction risk of double-cable tyre adjusted to breakdown tyre;
  • Reducing explosion risk due to overheating;
  • Diminishing tread detachment risk;
  • Diminishing tyre housing wear, providing the possibility of its retreading;
  • Reduction of damaging effects of overpressure, that appears as a result of temperature increase
  • If perforating objects have very big dimensions or a tube rip should occur (a  quite frequent situation) then the FKR sealant shall impede the sudden deflation by partially sealing the hole; thus it allows STOPPING IN SAFE CONDITIONS.


  • If the cord structure was not majorly affected, but was produced by objects whose size was larger than the limit, tyre deflation will not be produced in motion, but slowly in stationary, allowing flat repairing in special designed places for tyres exploitation, without needing the field intervention of the intervention team.


  • With tubeless tyres, in the case of rim deterioration, the pressure difference between tyre inner pressure and atmospheric pressure shall transport FKR toward deformation and shall partially clog the created hole, the product doesn’t seal metal (rim) – elastic wall (tyre) and in this case the product allows STOPPING IN SAFE CONDITIONS. Subsequently the rim shall be repaired, and the corresponding sealant quantity installed.

FKR does not cause balance problems at tyres if is correctly installed (see the section Technical Info/Dynamic balancing). If there are problems of this kind, then the presence of FKR in tyres shall accentuate the existing problem, under the form of vibrations. This represents another safety factor, alerting the driver about a major problem at the tyres, rims or suspensions.

Tyre Maintenance

Tyre’s treatment with FAKIR TYRE PROTECTION® (FKR) will bring you a dozen benefits considering the investment!


  • Prevents flats;
    • Seals leaks;
      • Cools the tyres.

A good choice for preventative tyre maintenance program!


FKR can help you reduce your tyre maintenance budget further by extending the life of your current tyres, reducing downtime and repair costs, and reducing damage to equipment.

Proper tyre inflation is the most important factor in tyre life!


Failing to properly inflate a tyre is the most common cause of premature obsoletion. Fitting tyres with FKR will result in maintaining a cooler operating temperature, longer tyre life and better fuel mileage.

FKR is primarily a necessity, not just a product for car enthusiasts. Economic efficiency of the product is proven at the auto-park level, by evaluating the tyre maintenance costs before and after the use FKR.

In order to track operating efficiency of the product we recommend you to use the INSTALLATION AND EVALUATION FORM drawn up for each vehicle whose tires were treated with FKR.

A flat tyre is not just a disconfort for having to remediate. For car fleets it also means:


Lack of profits during stopping time;

Increased costs while stopping.
