The new products from the Italian company, available in sizes 27.00x49, 31/80x49 and 31/90x49, have been developed with the MRLS Recaflex and MDT Recaflex profiles, and have a deeper tread pattern than the previous models, increased from 70 to 75 mm. This feature, combined with a larger footprint and a low hysteresis compound, is said to guarantee longer tread life, with maximum hourly performance and without negatively affecting casing “life”.
As a result of its work at its Rovereto R&D centre, Marangoni says it can offer custom earthmoving retreads based on the performance required for different applications, allowing users to choose between four different types of tread compound available, from the W2 compound with maximum resistance to cuts to the H1 with low heat development able to operate at high average speeds.
Luca Mai, sales executive manager at the Marangoni Group Commercial and Earthmover Tyres Division, says: “The Marangoni offering provides users of earthmoving tyres the maximum available on the market in terms of both retreading technology and compound quality, with a range of 267 different products, divided between 73 sizes and 38 profiles. To best manage this vast range in all European markets, Marangoni distributes its retreaded earthmoving tyres through a network of specialists, offering users a complete service and expert advice.”
MRLS Recaflex is a non-directional profile featuring a deep and solid pattern, for use on materials transport vehicles working in open-cut mines/quarries, while MDT Recaflex is also a non-directional tread design and enlarged base, particularly suitable for use on dumpers and offering “excellent self-cleaning features.”
It is said to be ideal for heavy-duty applications, it ensures at the same time high average speeds.
