Bridgestone India launches new tyre for tipper and construction vehicles
Bridgestone India today announced the launch of its new tyre for construction vehicles segment, which is meant specifically for tipper/dumper owner who operate in high load segment. Post the new axle load norms, the construction and mining sectors needed tyres that could cope with the permissible increased load factors. The L370HL addresses this requirement. Designed using proprietary software to optimise the tyre design, this tyre is made of special tread compound for excellent cut-chip resistance on off road.
L370HL tyre is suitable for heavy load segment and will be available in the size 295/90R20. The tyre is in block and shoulder lug design for heat radiation and block tear resistance respectively. The enforced bead structure improved the bead durability on the off road.
“This tyre will not only boost longevity but will also enhance robust performance. Dual Nylon Chafer is another special feature of the product which will protect the highly stressed body ply turn up, and spread the stresses over a larger area to reduce cracking. In this segment durability in over load and on-off road usage is the key consumer need. Improvement in durability (especially bead durability) and cut resistance are the key change points of this new product,” the tyre maker claims.
“Cost efficient logistics are key to the economics of the construction and mining sector. Downtime because of tyre malfunction can negatively impact the bottom line. Our L370HL is designed to weather the roughs of these sectors giving operators smooth logistics and thereby increasing productivity and efficiencies of these core sectors,” said Parag Satpute, Managing Director, Bridgestone India.
