Solaris Magic Formula tyre additive

Solaris Magic Formula tyre additive

New from Solaris come two rubber tyre additives in the form of Magic Formula A and B. Starting with Magic Formula A, the tyre sauce contains ingredients that are activated by heat making it ideal for medium to high track temperatures and medium to high grip conditions. Using the additive improves traction over a long period of time and it also acts as a tyre conditioner as it prolongs the life time of the rubber and prevents surface graining. Designed for lower track temperatures and indoor asphalt and carpet racing is Magic Formula B. Sharing some of the characteristics of the “A” additive, “B” is better suited for lower temperatures. It also is easier to work with and gives more initial grip. Both chemicals are very economical to use as it needs only 2 to 4 drops per tyre to prepare the rubber.
