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

Used Ultraseal for years and never had an issue, screws nails , etc. just pull them out and drive on..
Saved my ass when a 15mm bolt went into the side of the front tyre. Wasn't an instant blow out and crash as it could have been, slow deflation with the goo everywhere..

Plugs do not work with tubes.
