Poly Puncture Proofing

Tyre Fill

What is tyre fill?

Tyre fill, also known as solid fill, is mostly used in industries which require work on very rough surfaces with puncture hazards, including waste disposal, scrap metal, smelting operations, and underground mining.

Tyre fill makes your tyres immune to punctures while also maintaining the ride and traction of pneumatic tyres.

The benefits of using Tyre fill:

  • No more flat tyres
  • Reduced wheel slippage
  • Comfortable, trouble free ride
  • Good flotation and traction
  • Greater vehicle stability
  • Excellent shock absorption
  • Less axle stress
  • Increased ballast

With tyres that are filled, you can expect a softer ride than a solid rubber puncture resistant tyre. Filled tyres add to operator comfort, and greater traction. Equipment is no longer limited to 25 km p/h, with less equipment damage due to reduced vibration and improved energy conservation.

Save money with tyre fill

  • Increased tread life
  • Reduced tyre repair costs
  • Maximum work output per vehicle

Solid Fill

Your trustworthy solution for everlasting tyres

Solid Fill is suitable for equipment operating in harsh surface conditions where increased puncture resistance is required, including but not limited to:

  • Foundries
  • Recycling Facilities such as Glass, Scrap Metal and Waste
  • Smelters
  • Underground and Surface Mining
  • Waste Transfer Station

Solid Fill provides improved puncture resistance while maintaining the ride comfort and traction capabilities of your pneumatic tyre.

The benefits of a Solid Fill solution:

  • No more down time due to punctures
  • Eliminates tyre slippage on the rim
  • Provides a constant tyre footprint with good flotation and traction
  • Greater vehicle stability with a comfortable, trouble free ride
  • Excellent shock absorption
  • Maximises productivity
  • Prevents tyre blowouts and improves safety
  • Removes the need for regular pressure maintenance
  • Increased ballast


What equipment is Solid Fill suitable for?

Generally, it’s used for Excavators, Loaders, Golf Buggies, Mowing Equipment, Rough Terrain Forklifts, Skid Steers, Telehandlers, Specialised Underground Mining Equipment, Agricultural Equipment and Implements. In general, Solid Fill can be used on any pneumatic tyre that is used in a slow-moving application.

How Much Does it Cost?

Cost is dependent on the amount of fill required for your tyre and is calculated on volume for every tyre size, please contact us for a quick and easy quote for your specific tyre.

Can you fill on Site?

Unfortunately, No! The equipment and chemicals required are not mobile and due to health and safety responsibilities the process must be carried out in a controlled environment.

Can I use my existing tyres?

Yes, but they must be able to hold air. We are unable to work with punctured tyres as the liquid will escape before the cure process is complete. We do recommend using new tyres to ensure maximum wear ability for your investment.

Does the tyre pressure change?

No, liquid fill is pumped into the tyre as per the customer’s request unless it exceeds the manufacturer’s maximum inflation pressure. This information is located on the sidewall of the tyre.

Does the load carrying capacity of the tyre increase?

No, Solid Fill does not change the manufacturer’s load carrying capacity.

Are Solid Filled tyres heavier?

Yes, because Solid Fill cures and becomes solid extra weight is added, please contact us with your tyre size and we can let you know the extra weight that will be added per tyre.

What causes failures?

Chunking is a concern when Solid Filling. Chunking occurs when chunks of cut up Solid Fill are placed into a tyre before filling occurs to save money, as the tyre is used the chunks can create air pockets which can cause premature tyre failure. TFI does not use this chunking method and only uses virgin liquid fill in all applications.
