Sorry to bring this back from the dead, been using Stan's for years but I'm interested in trying Orange Seal. Can I just use the Orange Seal without cleaning the old Stan's out?

I dunno, but I've wondered the same thing. At a guess I'm thinking you'd just get a slightly different colored glop. One might cause the other to coagulate though, who knows?

Give it a shot and then tell us. What's the worst that could happen? A flat tire?

Just added the orange seal into tires with pre-existing Stan's, we'll see. Though not sure how much riding I'll be getting in since here in the midatlantic winter is setting in, and I work snow removal for city government. Will update ASAP though.

Cool. Thanks for being willing to try it! I'm kinda curious, but not curious enough to go out and buy a bottle of Stan's just to find out...

No they both suck. Orange seal or Stans works

Anyone find stans eventually degrades their tyres and sweats through like crazy?

Maybe, but I think it's more like your sidewalls get weathered and worn and eventually THAT causes the sealant to seep through. Not sure how you'd really prove it one way or the other, tho. You could be right for all I know.

I could be imagining this but I think the original Stans has changed due to less puncture protection for me. And thought it uncool to have to pay more for "race" for the good stuff. Been doing the simple mold-builder and windshield washer fluid with zero issues in two years. I add glitter just because it's pretty. Still have a quart of stans I won't open. I'll gift it. My friend uses the orange stuff and swears by it.

Have you found this happens with other brands as I've only used stans for some stupid reason?

Yeah, I've seen Trucker Co. and Orange seal seep, too. Especially in wet/humid weather.
