Patch Tyre Equipment has launched a new nano-composite repair patch on the Irish market – Patch IT. The Patch IT self-adhesive repair patch, which has been on trial in Ireland for the past three months cuts out the need for cement, and significantly reduces repair time.
Brian Matthews of Patch Tyre Equipment says he first came across the technology in Australia and New Zealand, before trialling it in Ireland earlier in the year.
Patch IT solves the problem of patches lifting at the edges, which is common place with conventional patches on the market.
Brian, who has been in the business for nearly 30 years, told Tyretrade.ie: “Patch IT can be used on Car, Van and 4×4 tyres. All the operator has to do is remove the nail from the tyre, buff the area to be repaired, take the foil off the patch, and press it into place with thumb pressure.
“There is no waiting around waiting for cement to dry, which means there’s no delay in carrying out the repair.”
He added: “The nano-composite material is very flexible and fills the affected area, as part of the repair process. The patches are 45mm in diameter and can repair cuts up to 7mm.”
