Tyre Treatments


We now stock four different Track-Tac products in 3.8L (one US gallon) containers.

We also have stock of tyre needlers which are used to help aid getting the tyre treatments deeper into the tyre. These tools are used for both kart and car tyres. They can also help reduce heat in the tyre and reduce the way the tire is peeling layers of rubber.

Sapphire PRW

Track Tac Sapphire with DRT will drop the hardness of the tires when cold, between 0 to 5 points, depending on the number of coats applied.
Average – 2 points.
Specially designed to provide dirt repellent for dirt tracks.

Directions

  • Track Tac Sapphire with DRT is primarily used at the track between trips to the grid.  A single thin coat is what is usually needed.  It is important that Track Tac Sapphire with DRT be allowed to dry fully for the most benefit.
  • In rare cases it may be desirable to use as a base coat applied early in the week.  For a Saturday night race, Wednesday night before the race using a paint roller, sponge, or some other method completely cover the tread of each tire with 1 or 2 coats of Track Tac Sapphire with DRT.  Wrapping the tires is optional but NOT recommended.
  • It is not recommended that Track Tac Sapphire with DRT be used to soften tires.  If it is used to soften, it is wasted and not effective in almost all cases.
  • Track Tac Sapphire with DRT is designed not to soften the tire but give fantastic “bite”.
  • Track Tac Sapphire with DRT will last for a full night of racing and increase the life of the tire if applied correctly.
  • Track Tac Sapphire with DRT works on natural or synthetic latex rubber.  If racing on dirt, wipe down the tires with Track Tac Sapphire with DRT between heats, if possible.

Tire Tuff Mint

Track Tac Tire Tuff Mint is recommended for building bite and enhancing the durability of racing and off road tires.  Can be used on paved, aggregate, rock, or dirt racing surfaces.  Track Tac Tire Tuff Mint is designed to make tires tougher and more durable.  Track Tac Tire Tuff Mint has been found to be especially effective on Vega Oval tires when run on sealer and paved tracks.  Track Tac Tire Tuff Minthas also worked with Maxxis, Burris, Dunlop, Firestone, and Hoosier tires with comparable results.  It is extremely effective on car tires for dirt or asphalt racing.

Directions
This can be done from the outside of the tires.  It is NOT recommended as an inside treatment.

  • Apply one liberal coat of Tire Tuff Mint and allow to penetrate the tires at least 1 to 2 hours.
  • Apply a second coat of Tire Tuff Mint and allow to penetrate the tires until dry.  As many as 8 coats have been applied in testing.  The more coats, the longer the drying time.
  • Vega tires usually only need a single coat or two applied to the outside of the tire.  If treating from the inside use regular Track Tac Tire Tuff.
  • After the application of Tire Tuff Mint, the tires may be treated with any other Track Tac product to obtain a desired effect for a given track.
  • Tire Tuff Mint may interfere with excessive softening of tires.

Topaz

Track Tac Topaz will drop the hardness of the tire at room temperature between 5 to 25 points, depending on the number of coats applied or time rolled in Topaz.  Allow each coat to dry before applying the next coat – about 10 to 20 minutes.  Tuesday night before the race, repeat what was done on Monday night.  Wrapping the tires is not recommended.  For softer tires increase the number of coats to 3 to 6 with Topaz.  The procedure can be repeated on Wednesday night for even softer tires.  Topaz will last for a full night of racing and increase the life of the tire.
