I've used ultraseal before Anto, and it actually did work sealing a puncture

Vague memory of some type of micro-beads that claimed to do the same job.
Would anybody remember the name, or a possible link?

I put half a bottle into the wheelbarrow tube, as it had a slow puncture in it. It has done the job & sealed up the leak, as it has been holding steady ever since
