Final and binding court decision again in favour of Ultra-Seal against the BRV

After 3 courts’ decisions in favour of Ultra-Seal on several court cases against the BRV in Germany, Ultra-Seal recently collected another positive outcome in an oral hearing at the Regional Court (Landgericht) of Cologne about erroneous allegations by the BRV on environment and the collection of tyre casings (file no. 33 O 153/17).
The oral hearing was conducted by the BRV, based on a preliminary injunction issued by the Regional Court regarding wrong allegations by the BRV on environment and the collection of tyre casings (communicated by Ultra-Seal on 30/10/2017).
In this oral hearing, the court informed Ultra-Seal and BRV that they were still convinced BRV’s statements were illegal even after review of the arguments and facts provided in BRV’s objection.
 
BRV accepted the court’s decision being final and equal to a main action decision, and therefore lost the opportunity to go into higher appeal. Ultra-Seal on their behalf let go an outstanding penalty that the BRV potentially had to pay because the organisation did not hold themselves to an earlier decision of the court.
Possible penalty for BRV up to €250,000.00

 

The BundesReifenVerband is not allowed to uphold the statements anymore on both the product being environmentally unfriendly, and the wrongful accusations on possible tyre casing collection problems when tyres contain Ultra-Seal.

If BRV does not obey the decision of the court and continues sending out any such statements as prohibited by the court, a penalty up to €250,000.00 as stipulated by German law can be imposed on BRV. 

 

New distributor for Romania, Bulgaria and Moldavia

 

Ultra-Seal has come to an agreement with GTO Piese de Schimb SRL for the distributorship rights for the sale of Ultra-Seal in Romania, Bulgaria and Moldavia.
 

GTO Piese de Schimb SRL has over 20 years of transport-related industry experience and focuses on reselling parts and spare parts to end-users in Romania. The Romanian company’s headquarters is based in Bucharest, with 7 subsidiaries throughout Romania.

GTO Piese de Schimb is a subsidiary of GTO Truck and Trailer parts in Holland. With its headquarters based in Heerlen, the Group in The Netherlands has over 140 employees and had a turnover of 80 Million euros in 2017.

The GTO Group specializes in selling DAF trucks, spare parts for trucks and trailers and OE parts of, amongst others, BPW, SAF, DAF, HELLA and Textar. The Group also has a network of professional workshops for truck and trailer repair.
 
Change in Danish legislation on trailer MOT regarding tyre sealants non-legally based?
 

On 1 January 2018 new Danish guidelines on trailer MOT were published with an added paragraph about tyre sealants. After research and preparation for appeal, the first conclusion is that the modified guidelines, which are not law, have been changed based on a one-sided argument regarding tyre sealants without consultation of that specific business segment. In addition, the extensive statutory instrument regulating MOTs has not been changed with respect to this new paragraph.

Ultra-Seal and its lawyers are investigating the change, initiated by the Danish tyre association, and are confident to have it changed back to the initial guidelines which do not state anything about tyre sealants.

“At least leads and customers are realizing more and more what the political agenda is concerning the cases that are filed against Ultra-Seal, as our business is growing fast in Germany and Denmark”
 

Carla van Santvoort, Business Development Manager of Ultra-Seal further states: “The fact that parties with other interests are trying so hard to keep us off their local markets, makes people realise how good our product is in its working. If it would not work as it intends to, tyre associations wouldn’t be so worried by it.

We keep on defending our product against every party that creates disturbance. We owe that to all our loyal users and want to show the world that currently accepted tyre-life is not something that you should settle for."

 
Ultra-Seal requests every user that is facing difficulties with its MOT in Denmark to report it to the company, as they are investigating the non-legality of it.

Breaking results on punctured tyres after 10 months of normal trailer operation

 
Ultra-Seal’s demonstration trailer that came out of the factory in May 2016, had
Ultra-Seal in all 6 tyres, 9 bar air pressure per tyre from the start and the trailer
was equipped with Goodride tyres.
 
On 29 July 2016, this test video was shot:
 
Ultra-Seal - The Ultimate Test
Incorrect view? click here

The test specifications were:

All 3 tyres on the left side of trailer were punctured with 10 nails per tyre. The nails were 5cm long, the top of the nails 5.5mm wide and the head of the nails had a diameter of 8mm.

After these left-sided tyres were punctured 10 times each, no tyre repair, change or adjustments had been carried out. Only the air was checked; no air loss had occurred, so the trailer was sent into normal operation then and there.

On 29 May 2017 the trailer came in for annual MOT in Sweden. It still had the same 6 tyres under the vehicle and no tyre pressure adjustments, changes or repairs were carried out between July 2016 and May 2017.

The trailer drove about 79,000KM in its first year of operation.

The results from the tyre measurements are ground breaking:

Tyre Pressure

*Measured on cold tyres which negatively influences tyre pressure with about 0.2 BAR

PUNCTURED SIDE*
LF: 8.19 BAR
LM: 8.29 BAR
LR: 8.28 BAR
NON-PUNCTURED SIDE*
RF: 8.27 BAR
RM: 8.23 BAR
RR: 8.30 BAR


Remaining Tread

PUNCTURED SIDE
LF: 10 MM
LM: 14 MM
LR:  9 MM
NON-PUNCTURED SIDE
RF:  9 MM
RM: 14 MM
RR: 10 MM

The result showed that the tyres, punctured or not (even 10 punctures per tyre!), had a fully equal air pressure both left and right!

The remaining tread in millimetres showed a fantastic result as well and indicated that these tyres could still be used for driving another 80,000 KM.

 
 


2 successful court cases for Ultra-Seal against
German tyre association BRV

 

By winning a preliminary injunction court case in September that had been filed against Ultra-Seal by the BRV, Ultra-Seal itself has afterwards filed a preliminary injunction against BRV relating to new, wrongful statements the German tyre association made in the press against the tyre sealant company. This case has now also been successfully issued in favour of Ultra-Seal.
Injunction in favour of Ultra-Seal about environment and collection of tyre casings
 

After winning the preliminary court case against BRV in both court (Landgericht Bonn) and higher Federal court of appeal (Oberlandesgericht Köln) by Ultra-Seal, where Landgericht Bonn concluded that the ‘Richtlinien’ are not market conduct rules (Marktverhaltensvorschriften) within the meaning of German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), the BundesReifenVerband then took another approach in attacking Ultra-Seal by stating that the tyre sealant is bad for the environment and that problems can occur when tyre casings are being collected after being treated with Ultra-Seal.
 

Ultra-Seal filed a preliminary injunction court case against these statements, and the injunction was successfully issued on the 18th of October 2017 by Landgericht Köln (33 O 153/17, open to appeal).
 

Possible penalty for BRV up to €250,000.00
 

The Landgericht Köln concluded that the BundesReifenVerband cannot uphold the arguments anymore on both the product being environmentally unfriendly, and the wrongful accusations on possible tyre casing collection problems when tyres contain Ultra-Seal.

If BRV does not obey the decision of the court and will continue sending out any such statements as prohibited by the court, a penalty up to €250,000.00 as stipulated by German law can be imposed on BRV. 

Ultra-Seal hopes for an end to wrongful allegations

After this second successful case for Ultra-Seal, the company now hopes that the BRV will stop attacking Ultra-Seal whilst doing business in Germany.
Many German and International companies like DSV, DHL, Ewals Cargo Care, TIP Trailer Services, Bring, Ancotrans, UES, Mezger and ICTS Group already benefit from optimum tyre usage, as they are benefitting from maximum tyre wear reduction, fewer punctures and optimum tyre pressure when using Ultra-Seal in its tyres.

Ultra-Seal states: “An open dialogue with the BRV has been proposed on numerous occasions, but this has been rejected. We will continue to defend our product against any illegal statements, defamation and libel of our business.”

Ultra-Seal’s customer base and the usage per country in Europe is growing fast.

DSV announces savings on operational tyre costs between Q1-2016 and Q1-2017

Huge savings because of fewer tyre purchases, a decline in the use of external breakdown services and fewer tyre incidents have convinced DSV to an even greater extent of the benefits of Ultra-Seal for its entire trailer fleet.

After DSV completed its fieldtest of 500 trailers with Ultra-Seal early 2016, the company has now filled 3500 trailers, out of its total fleet of more than 8500 trailers, with Ultra-Seal.

But after filling only about 40% of its fleet, DSV already sees an enormous decrease in tyre costs and overall operational costs.
DSV expects to have completed the filling of all its trailers by 2019.

Furthermore, all new trailers that are purchased, are equipped with Ultra-Seal right from the factory, so those trailers can also benefit from optimal tyre use.
 
 
 

After one year of trailer operation without any maintenance, DSV has experienced a tyre pressure loss of less than 5% on all tyres treated with Ultra-Seal and an average mileage of 180,000 km per tyre on all rear axles, extending tyre life with 38% compared to mileage indications from premium tyre brands*.


*Premium tyre brands state that their tyres only reach 130,000km when regular re-inflation of the tyres takes place.
 

900 fewer tyres fitted



In Q1 2017, DSV, therefore, replaced 900 fewer worn-out tyres in its operations, compared to Q1 2016.



Using 900 fewer tyres with an average price of €300.00 each, saved DSV €270,000.00 in Q1 2017.
 
 


872 fewer
tyre-related incidents




Tyre-related incidents are the consolidated term for punctures, blowouts, flat tyres, sidewall damage, tread separation and tread damage.



The entire DSV fleet suffered from 872 fewer tyre-related incidents in Q1 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.
 
DSV has seen a remarkable reduction in the need to use expensive external breakdown services, because punctures are sealed in tyres treated with Ultra-Seal, allowing them to maintain their air pressure and to make the trip home to DSV’s own workshops in the Netherlands and in Scandinavia.
This keeps the costs associated with repair services to a minimum.



In the first Quarter of 2016, DSV suffered from 650 breakdowns, whereas in Q1 2017 DSV experienced 468 breakdowns, accounting for a decrease of 28% in the overall use of external breakdown services.


A tyre breakdown costs DSV an average of €528.00, which means that the company saved €96,096.00 in Q1 2017.
 
Ultra-Seal’s claims and benefits

The main benefits of using Ultra-Seal lie in the fact that the tyre sealant liquid protects tyres from leaks, punctures and blowouts, resulting in an overall of 75% fewer tyre-related incidents. It seals most punctures as they happen, it ensures tyre heat reduction of 20 to 25% and extends tyre life by up to 40% by keeping the air pressure in the tyre which minimises tyre wear and reduces fuel consumptionby up to 5%.
 

Customers of Ultra-Seal have received recommendations and statements from tyre associations regarding the use of Ultra-Seal. These tyre associations consist of tyre manufacturers who are troubled by the extended tyre life results when using Ultra-Seal.

After more than 40 years of operation, Ultra-Seal is fully aware of the guidelines and laws regarding tyre sealants and tyre repairs, and Ultra-Seal obeys these laws.

Ultra-Seal is legal, safe, good for the environment and saves fleet operators extreme amounts of money, which is continuously being proven by DSV, the largest transport company in Europe, and by more and more customers every day.

Ultra-Seal will soon come with an official statement on the legal, technical and commercial aspects, to counterargument implications made by tyre associations.

Ultra-Seal further expands its reach with new large OEM customers Schmitz Cargobull and Kögel,
and Danish and Belgian distributors Europart and Eurotyre

 

Ultra-Seal is systematically acquiring full European network coverage by contracting Europart Denmark and Eurotyre Belgium for the distributorship rights for the sale of Ultra-Seal.

Furthermore, Schmitz Cargobull and Kögel were also added to the customer base, to provide end-users with tyres filled with Ultra-Seal on their new trailers, enabling them to benefit from maximum tyre wear reduction, fewer punctures and optimum tyre pressure.
 
In January 2017, DSV Road issued a gigantic order of 3000 new trailers for 2017-2018, to Schmitz Cargobull. DSV requested Ultra-Seal in addition to the standard factory trailer specifications at Schmitz Cargobull.

All 3000 new trailers that will leave the Schmitz Cargobull premises in the next 2 years will be equipped with Ultra-Seal-treated
Westlake tyres, since Westlake has given its official approval to use Ultra-Seal in its tyre brand.

Kögel Trailer GmbH & Co. KG
Kögel has also started ordering the Ultra-Seal products to serve its customers’ needs. ICTS and Amco Logistics, amongst others, are requesting that Kögel equip their new vehicles with Ultra-Seal-treated tyres.

Amco Logistics is one of the first English customers that started using Ultra-Seal. With 180 employees and facilities in Newbury, Felixstowe and headquarters in Dervy, Amco Logistics focuses on transport for predominantly automotive, rail and exhibitions throughout Europe.
