Effetto Mariposa Caffelatex Tubeless Tyre Sealant
Who's this item for: Any riders looking for a high performance tubeless sealant that seals holes quickly and protects the whole tyre.
Tyre compatibility: Is compatible with all Tubeless Ready tyres.
Lifespan: Caffelatex is very durable compared to other latex-like sealants. As with all sealants its lifespan is directly related to the conditions of the tyre. Effetto Mariposa recommended checking Caffelatex every 2 months to make sure it is still liquid.
The expected lifespan in a Tubeless Ready tyre is 1-4 months, and in a Tube-type tyre is 1-3 months.
Usable temperature range: Caffelatex is rated for use between -20 to 50°C and should be stored between -15 to 30°C.
Hole sealing size: It seals holes up to 5mm in off road tyres.
Includes applicator lid/syringe: The 60ml pouch includes a calibrated hose to top up sealant though compatible valves. The 1L or 250ml do not include a hose. We recommend pouring these directly into the tyre and re-beading it or using them with a tyre sealant injector.
Sealing method: Uses a synthetic latex to seal holes back together.
Contains Ammonia: No! It does not contain ammonia or any aggressive chemicals and is non-toxic. Its even fine for people allergic to latex as it is a synthetic variant.
Ease of cleaning scale (higher is better) 1-10: Unknown.
Pros: The sealant foams to fill the entire tyre cavity and seal holes even in the sidewall. Its non-toxic and has a large temperature range for use.
Cons: It doesn't have the longest life span once installed.
