Tubeless tire degredation

Hi all,

I'm having a problem re-seating a Nobby Nic tire I'm running on a Stan's 26" rim. The reason I'm posting is previously I've had no problems at all with these tires, even been able to seat and inflate them with no sealant at all. Now I simply cannot get it to seat at all.

I'm fairly sure I've read that the sealant slowly eats into the sidewalls of the tire and weakens then - I'm thinking that's what's happened here after several years of no hassles. Anyone else know if that's correct regarding the sealant or had a similar issue?

Cheers,
Steve
