Here at JWT, we are equipped to offer Uniflate Nitrogen Inflation for your tyres, rather than just compressed air. For just £2.40 (inc. VAT) per wheel, you can experience the many benefits that Nitrogen Inflation can offer.
Under inflated tyres create drag which increases tread wear, fuel costs and the risk of punctures as well as having a significant effect on a cars performance both in handling and cost. Uniflate produces a stable inflation mixture, which has improved pressure retention properties that will ensure tyres remain fully inflated for longer. By having your tyres at the correct pressures you will experience the following benefits:
It is also estimated that under-inflation of your tyres by 20% can cause fuel costs to rise by 5%.
Compressed air that is usually used to inflate your tyres contains Water, Water vapour and Oxygen, which attacks the wheel rims and shortens the useful life of the rubber.
In a survey carried out by Sussex police, 73% of all cars checked had incorrect tyre pressures. Police also check the tyre pressures of every car involved in a road traffic accident in the UK. This data shows that 86% of vehicles involved in road traffic accidents have incorrect tyre pressures.
The Uniflate System carries out in milliseconds what happens in every tyre over a period of months. By filtering out the 'active oxygen' and water / water vapour, Nitrogen Inflation provides the tyre with a stable inflation mixture that has no desire to permeate (leak) out through the tyre's structure, causing a loss in tyre pressure.
