Marangoni is rationalising its production and commercial operations of its Retreading Systems business
Off the road (OTR) retread tyre manufacturer Marangoni has launched a new precured tread range.
The Italy-based company says the launch continues the rationalisation of the Marangoni Retreading Systems production and commercial operations, which has led to the full integration of its European product lines.
The new tread range now features only two brands – PRL and UNITREAD – which Marangoni says means a significant reduction of the complexity previously caused by product overlaps.
It adds that the PRL brand continues to represents the company's performance and quality promise, enhanced by the introduction of new modern tread lines developed with high-performing compounds that have the distinctive “BLK” (Blackline) marking.
The PRL Blackline products have been designed to enable high performance in fuel consumption, durability and grip in all road conditions.
The most important products of the previous Kontur line are still present in the new PRL range.
UNITREAD’s range has been redesigned by Marangoni to meet the needs of price-oriented customers, where the central requirement is the lower cost of the finished product.
This product family is divided into two lines: standard (STD) and BASIC. Unlike the PRL range, where most of the products are cut-to-length based on the basis of the casing size, UNITREAD products are offered in 10-metre tread rolls. Many UNITREAD treads are also lighter and therefore suited for the retreading of casings which should be exposed to less stress, fatigue and heating during service.
Marangoni says the new edition of its "THE TREAD" product manual represents these innovations, illustrating the two updated ranges of precured tread strips.
