- Caffe Latex – utter gash
don’t forget it works differently to stans. When i first out some in mine and inflated it didn’t work and i thought it was pants. Then i realised it works when i span it and rode out on it.Posted 4 years ago
Foaming action activated by wheel movement: the first advantage of Caffélatex over classic latex-based sealants comes from a foaming agent (Actifoam™), activated by wheel movement. Centrifugal force drives standard latex-based sealants against the outer circumference of the tyre. Caffélatex foaming action causes it to fill the tyre’s entire internal cavity , making it much more effective against sidewall punctures.clubberMember
All sealants seems to cause problems for some people so it’s clearly not as simple as X sealant is crap and Y is brilliant. Some combinations of tyres/rims/etc seem to work with some sealants than others.
FWIW, I’ve had few issues with Stans or Joes except with a couple of cx tyres that just wouldn’t seal – something to do with the tyre release agent apparently.Posted 4 years agobrassneckSubscriber
I have to preface this by saying i don’t run tubeless, but can sealant not be made from Copydex? Perhaps with extra water? Do these sealants smell a bit fishy like the aforementioned glue?
Yeah it can be, but see my comment above. It’ll probably work for most thorns etc. but Stans stays liquid and fixes some mighty holes more consistently than anything I’ve tried (and I reckon over 8 years or so I’ve tried most everything).
I’ll check out that Doc Blue, good shout if it is the same stuff.Posted 4 years ago
