Hi, By all means, please do.
Apologisies for jumping the gun on your product BTW.
My lack of success with Pittstop made me point the finger at the foamy nature of the emulsion as explained in previous posts.
Either way, I'm sure an in depth explanation of the various design decisions are most welcome as would be an estimated success rate with this product.
No problem at all, fedgrove!
The main deal about Caffélatex is that its only latex content is actually in the name.... as its "synthetic latex" formula contains polymers that behave similarly to natural latex, but are not latexes. The foaming effect is an intrinsic property of one of the polymers we use in the blend. The foam is just a way to carry and spread the sealant inside the tyre cavity and doesn't reinforce nor weaken the repairing effect: the sealant just happens to be there also when a puncture occurs on the sidewall, which is not necessarily the case with liquid sealants. We just made a video showing that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vfeLBqnc44
Then, while natural latex requires ammonia to be stabilized, Caffélatex doesn't, making it a safe choice for any tyre, or rim or tube... including very sensitive latex tubes inside tubulars. Caffélatex has been endorsed by Dugast as the only sealant currently compatible with their tubulars (that will soon be published on their website, I guess), which is proof of that.
Beside that, Caffélatex has a very good usage record with road tubeless, with good performance also at high pressure.
And then, some heads-up: we're going to launch at Interbike this year an additional product that will furtherly extend Caffélatex maximum sealable puncture way beyond what is currently possible for sealants. More on that soon!
