Hi BOBMUNZ,
I believe NWBoarder is correct in his post. TyreGuardian is optimized for motorcycle, car and truck use. The benefits of the formula happen to apply nicely in other, less challenging applications like lawn equipment and bicycles.

Stan's formula does not appear to be optimized for higher-speed applications. TyreGuardian has more of a fill-it-and-forget-it approach and has been recognized for high-speed applications by European Car Magazine and the testimonials shown on www.tyreguardian.us.

It appears to be a comparison of apples and oranges. Thanks again for the great question.
Jim

The result inside the tire looks identical to the pictures GB posted.

That product was mainly marketed for mountain bikes to be able to convert their wheels and tires to a tubeless system, and to also stop punctures up to 1/4 inch. I remember a trade show they had a demo set up where people could jam an ice pick through the tire and it would hold pressure, even on an 80PSI tire.

The other reason I ask is not to sound like a jerk or hijack or anything but there is a significant difference in price based on a 1L volume, I'm curious what sets your product apart.

EDIT: Just watched the demo video, suppose I should have done that first, but it just confirms my observation that its a liquid latex, but my other question still stands as to why the significant difference in price, because from what I can see they are basically the same product perhaps just slightly different consistencies.
