ContiComfortKit (CCK)

ContiComfortKit (CCK)Continental’s ContiComfortKit (CCK) is capable of comfortably sealing typical tire punctures, making it possible for you to complete the drive home, to work, an important appointment or a tire repair facility. The ContiComfortKit carries Germany’s TUV approval and is suitable for use with most passenger car tires, including run-flat designs.

The ContiComfortKit combines a powerful, high-volume, 12-volt air compressor, integral pressure gauge and a latex liquid tire sealant packaged in a compact, lightweight unit that’s easy to store in the vehicle. The sealant is compatible with direct, valve-mounted tire pressure sensors. A typical passenger car tire that is flat will take less than seven minutes to fill.

The ContiComfortKit can also be used as a stand-alone compressor without the sealant activated. When used in this mode, the ContiComfortKit can be used for periodic tire maintenance to compensate for tire pressure losses over time or due to changes in ambient temperature. And in the case of a very slow leak, the ContiComfortKit can restore sufficient pressure to drive the vehicle to a nearby tire repair facility.
