AirMan Operations

How does my AirMan work?

For the steps of your AirMan, refer to the instructions included with the AirMan packaging. A typical sequence of steps for AirMan tire repair solutions consists of: 

  1. Connect red sealant bottle hose to the tire valve.
  2. Connect compressor to the sealant bottle.
  3. Connect compressor plug to the power.
  4. Start engine and leave your car running during operation period.
  5. Turn on the compressor. Watch for the sealant to be fully pumped into the tire and observe tire pressure gauge.
  6. Continue tire inflation (max. 30 min. operation) until you reach the desired tire pressure.
  7. Turn Switch off. Drive vehicle approx. 8km/5miles to ensure repair sealant is applied. Maximum speed 80 km/h (50 mph).

In which instances can I use my AirMan tire repair?

AirMan can be used in many instances regardless of outside temperature or the time of the day. With AirMan, you can repair punctures which are up to 10 mm or 3/8” deep. AirMan can also be used for tire pressure monitoring for optimal tire care.

Can I fix a tire in the dark at night using AirMan?

You can use AirMan wherever and whenever you want. Our integrated repair solutions are equipped with a light that not only allows operation of AirMan in the dark but also makes you visible on the roadside for your safety. 

How long does it take to fix a flat tire with AirMan?

It depends on the size of the tire and how much existing pressure remains in the tire. A typical passenger car tire will take approximately 3 – 4 minutes starting from a complete flat tire.

Is AirMan easy enough for anyone to use?

Yes, AirMan makes it easy for any person of any driving age, regardless of gender or physical ability to fix a flat tire. It is an intuitive and safe alternative to changing spare tires. Easy to follow instructions are provided with each AirMan product.

Can I use AirMan only for tire repair or also for everyday tire inflation?

AirMan can be used for both purposes. It repairs punctures and/or inflates only. Most AirMan products are supplied with adaptors for inflating everyday objects such as balls, bikes, and other inflatable objects.

What do I need to do if the sealant comes out and does not fill the tire?

Stop the operation by turning off AirMan and disconnect the bottle hose from the tire valve. Wash off with water the tire, rim and bottle opening and try the repair operation again. Do not exceed this operation for over 10 minutes. If the sealant has not fully dispensed into the tire, then you should stop all operation and call for roadside assistance.

How do I know the sealant is correctly being pumped in the tire?

You can see that the bottle will be emptied thanks to the transparent AirMan bottle.

How do I know when to stop the inflation of the tire?

In case of a repair, the sealant bottle should become empty. You will use an entire bottle sized for your vehicle for one puncture. While the inflator is pumping air into the tire, check your tire pressure by reading the pressure gauge/manometer until you reach the desired manufacturer recommended pressure.
