  • Improved formula (since January 2012):Thanks to the addition of microscopic silicate particles, Effetto Caffélatex sealant now moves more slowly through holes, allowing the sealing ingredient more time to heal the puncture. These particles are NOT of macroscopic size (e.g., glitter 150-300 microns) but are instead microscopic particles less than 2 microns in diameter. Thus, Caffélatex flow characteristics change on a microscopic level without the headaches of valve-clogging glitter. Puncture repair speed is up to 5 times faster, an improvement especially noticeable with lightweight or thin-casing tiresFoaming action activated by wheel movement:The first advantage of Caffélatex over classic latex-based sealants comes from a foaming agent (ActifoamTM), 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.Puncture-repairing action:Its fast sealing action makes Caffélatex ideal for MTB and road tubeless, tubular and standard tyres. Caffélatex repairs punctures up to 5 mm (mtb) and 3 mm (road).Stable over time:Thanks to its formula, Caffélatex is a very stable and durable sealant, but we know this is highly dependable on kind of application and external conditions.Using the recommended quantities for tyre size, the expected sealant lifespan is:Tubular (or Caffélatex inserted into latex/butyl inner tube):1-2 yearsUST Tubeless tyre: 4-6 monthsTubeless-ready tyre: 2-4 monthsTube-type tyre: 2-3 monthsNevertheless, in the impossibility of knowing our customers' specific application (kind of wheel/tyre set-up, tyre sidewall thickness and porosities, external temperature and humidity, bicycle storage conditions…), we recommend checking Caffélatex every 2 months, to make sure it's liquid and therefore retains its 'puncture preventive' action.When dry, Caffélatex-sealed wheels are still air-tight, but Caffélatex won't actively repair punctures.Not corrosive:being completely ammonia-free, its 100% tyre and rim friendly. It's also a favourite sealant for cyclocross/tubular applications, creating no harm to the sensitive latex inner tubes.Usage and storage temperatures:From very cold to very hot, exceeding by far those of first-generation latex sealants (usage: -20/+50deg.C ~ storage: -15/ +30deg.C).Recommended quantities:30 to 50 ml per wheel for road/cyclocross applications; 50 ml for mtb tyres up to 26 x 2.10/29 x 2.00; 60 to 100 ml for mtb tyres over 26 x 2.10/29 x 2.00.Sizes:60ml pouch, 250ml or 1000ml bottles or 10 litre workshop tub

Effetto Caffélatex is a truly innovative tyre sealant successfully used on and off (MTB cyclocross) road for tubeless tubular and inner-tube applications.

"When we removed our 6mm screwdriver, the Caffélatex sealed the hole almost instantly. Even after wiggling the tool around it didn't take long to plug the hole. If you buy the one-litre bottle, it's great value too."

What Mountain Bike

Even after wiggling the screwdriver around, it plugged the hole on the second revolution of the wheel, making it a slightly faster hole-plugger than Stan's.
It's the cheapest on test, though, and if you buy the 1-litre bottle, it's surprisingly good value.
