As far as I know, there is no real need to repair punctures you get whilst
using the bi-tron TSS (unless it's one hell of a big hole, however, the
manufacturer states that it should seal punctures to 0.25 inches (that's
bigger than your average nail or screw you may find on the road!).
TSS is best installed BEFORE you get a puncture, as a preventative measure,
then it is most effective and next t impossible to get yourself a puncture
(a good customer presentation to sell the stuff is to roll out your
(TSS treated) spare tyre, with a hammer, big nail and a set of pliers, and
offer the customer to slam the nail into the tyre, then pull it out with
the plier. Voila! No noticable air loss, and an instant retail sale (works
almost every time!).
If a tyre is treated with TSS after getting a puncture, according to
customers, it is still effective and works well enough.
