Tubeless Sealant
« on: December 24, 2018, 02:18:58 pm »

I have one set of wheels that use Stans sealant and another set that I recently set up with Orange sealant.

I have run out of Stans and will need to top up the sealant in the next month or so.

Can I just use the Orange or do I have to empty out all of the Stans sealant first.

Thanks

I think you need to check the formula of each; my LBS advised me clean the old sealant out when I switched from Stans to Bontrager. Apparently some of them react with each other.

I've mixed Stans and Orangeseal. No dramas.

Do you need to put fresh sealant in at the beginning of the season

Sealant supposedly only works for about 6 months, though the stuff I put in one of my MTB tyres about 3 years ago is still holding it up well enough despite the obvious leaks all over it and the large ball I can hear rolling around. Prior to the top up 3 years ago I was just constantly dropping another syringe full in through the valve.
