ALLIGATOR sens.it TPMS Tool Kit
The TPMS Tool kit was specially put together to provide all the mechanical tools needed to install tire pressure sensors on valves and rims.Download Flyer
This question played an important role at the last valve seminar, too.
All the specialists in the industry know that tires are subject to a certain ageing process and accordingly, use-by dates apply; that rubber valves also age and therefore should not be fitted after a certain period of time is, however, not always known.
Find more details on the ageing of rubber valves and, above all,
with regard to the storage of these safety parts, here.

and top-quality rims.
Take advantage of this first-class design element – for your make of car or motorbike, for your customers with particularly top-quality wheels, or simply as a little reward for your clients.
Black and titanium grey rims are the current trend.
We have the valves to match.
- Simple mounting and demounting –
top nut fits over the valve cap
- Aluminium valve cap with seal ensures 100% air tightness
- Also reliable for fast vehicles (over 210 km/h)
- Valve made of light metal (aluminium) --> light weight
- Revolving connection, valve can be filled in every position
- For bicycle valves (Dunlop, Sclaverand, Schrader) as well as automobile valves
- Sturdy, shock-proof, synthetic housing
- Reading of display on pressure gauge ensured, wherever valve is positioned
A valve especially for commercial vehicles and mobile homes
Ease of assembly and disassembly without using a special tool
In day-to-day operation, commercial vehicles and mobile homes are exposed to
considerable demands. Reason enough for ALLIGATOR to develop a new tire valve
specially for this application.
When we were developing the ALLIGATOR CVV, pressure capacity, excellent sealing,
and ease of assembly and disassembly were our top priorities.
ALLIGATOR CVV - A valve especially for commercial vehicles, delivery vans and mobile homes
An overview of the advantages:
- Simple to mount by hand
- Reliable sealing in the rim
- Simple to insert
- Easily removed without special tools
- No rim damage during disassembly
- High pressure capacity
- Fits almost every rim
A safe and efficient way of mounting Snap-In valves in original equipment and at tire service stations.
Tire valves are safety components. Although they cost only very little,
a lot depends on them. Error-free mounting is a basic requirement
for the safe functioning of the Snap-In valves.
The correct tools are necessary if a valve is to be mounted faultlessly.
ALLIGATOR Express Valve UNIVERSAL
One for all
ALLIGATOR, the inventor of the millionfold, tried and tested Express Valve, is once again turning the wheels of bicycle history.
The Swabian concern, rich in tradition, has developed a new valve, which fits all bicycles - racing bikes and mountain bikes, too:
The ALLIGATOR Express Valve UNIVERSAL
In short: one valve for all types of bicycle !
an important safety element
A tire valve, millionfold in use, and mostly completely unnoticed, is an important safety element in every vehicle. A good valve cap with a built-in rubber seal is a basic requirement for the long-lasting function of a valve and fulfills several functions at once.
ALLIGATOR Double Seal Valve Cap V2B
The valve cap that saves money
The regular checking of tire pressure is especially for trucks
and commercial vehicles an absolute must:
* Increased tire life.
* Lower fuel consumption.
* Safety for driver and vehicle
0,6 bar less tire pressure increases the fuel consumtion by 3 %
and 30 % less tire pressure halves the life of the tire.
A good valve cap can prevent gradual loss
of air and so helps to save real money.
Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems - TPMS
Mechanical Design Aspects for Wheel Sensors – an Overview
For over 15 years, industry has been working on the development of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) that can measure operating tire pressurewhile driving and warn the driver in the event of under-inflation or pressure loss.
During the manufacturing of a tire, the air present in themold has to be able to escape. The traditional methodof venting the mold by simply drilling boreholesinvolves significant consequential costs for the removal of the rubber pins.The special tire mold venting valves ALLIGATOR TMV and TMV-S undertake the task of venting and not only provide the tire with a more aesthetic appearance but also help to noticeably reduce production costs.
Naturally, ALLIGATOR TMV and TMV-S can also be used in the production of other molded rubber items.
The Universal valve for transporters and vehicles with high requirements
The greater motor capacity and braking power in cars and transporters cause higher operational temperatures for thetire valves. Safety-conscious drivers attach importance to a tire valve with high safety reserves. The new Universal valve ALLIGATOR 40 MS-ASC-HT provides reliability at increased pressures and temperatures and, at the same time, helps to save costs with its optimized assembly construction.
Series of posters for tire shops
Choice of valve and valve mounting
The correct mounting of the tire valve is the basic requirement for itstrouble-free operation. Here, there are many things to consider: commencing with the correct choice of valve, which depends on the predominant operational conditions, through inspection of the rim before mounting, culminating in the correct mounting tools. ALLIGATOR has developed this series of posters to instruct not only the employees in tire shops but also all those who are involved with tire valves in any way.
Green valve caps
... for nitrogen-filled tires
Filling tires with nitrogen is becoming more and more popular. As a rule, green valve caps are used by way of identification. In addition to this green version, ALLIGATOR also provides valve caps in red, yellow and blue. Other colours are available on request.
ALLIGATOR Hidden Valve
- the invisible valve for Design Freaks
These valves blend in inconspicuously with top-quality designer rims and so improve the optics of the wheel. At the same time, the disguised model effectively prevents mechanical damage and sabotage. It goes without saying that it is all in tried and tested ALLIGATOR quality.
Tire Pressure Monitoring Sytems (TPMS)
Together with ALLIGATOR as valve manufacturer, the automobile industry has been working on the development of active systems for tire pressure monitoring for over 15 years.
This article gives a review of the technology at present available, and reflects 15 years of experience in develop- ment and mechanical construction.
ALLIGATOR Asia Pacific
