The Benefits of Nitrogen Tire Inflation

BRIEF INFORMATION: [FACTS TO KNOW]

• Recent studies have shown that 8 out of 10 tires travelling on the road are under inflated. Nitrogen has a low diffusion rate when compared with Oxygen due to the variance in molecular physical properties

• Since Nitrogen is mostly an inert gas, it helps in reducing temperature rises (that causes sidewall deformation) due to road bed friction by 17-21%

• Nitrogen prevents water vapor which is the main culprit to rim damage (rust), TPMS damage, valves (pressure loss) and breakage of tire walls (cuts)

• Nitrogen has a low heat conductivity and a low noise conductivity

NITROGEN TIRE INFLATION COMMON APPLICATIONS:

• Most Motorsport vehicles' tires (Formula I, Rally cars, Dragsters, etc.)

• NASA Space Shuttles' tires

• Earth moving equipment's tires

• Civilian and military armored vehicles

• Civilian and military planes' tires

• Competition grade bicycle's tires...such as in the Tour of France and D’ Italia

NITROGEN INFLATED TIRES REMAIN INFLATED FOR 3TO 4 TIMES LONGER THAN THOSE INFLATED WITH COMMON AIR. MAINTAINING THE PROPER TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE RESULTS IN THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:

• Better handling and road holding (enhanced stability at high speed)

• Reduced puncture risk by up to 33% according to statistics (more safety)

• Reduced rolling resistanc

• Better handling and road holding (enhanced stability at high speed)

• Reduced puncture risk by up to 33% according to statistics (more safety)

• Reduced rolling resistance thus decreasing fuel consumption by 2%

• Reduced tread wear and increased tire life by up to 25%

• Shorter braking distances

• Reduced stress in vehicle frame and body work (due to rough riding on irregular road surfaces)

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF NITROGEN TIRE INFLATION:

• Protects the rim and steel belting from corrosion (rust)

• Lower noise when rolling

• Reduced risk of tire blowout due to lower running temperature and lack of oxygen
