Vipar Rubber, a leading company in Latin America and one of the world's largest manufacturers of tire retreading and repair products, has increasingly won over North American customers with the quality of its products and extensive portfolio of options to meet the needs of each business. Among the treads that are expanding the brand's share in the United States market is the new VT850 tread, developed for heavy work with vehicles such as motorgraders, wood grabber loaders and loaders and traction vehicles to operate off-road.
This new product was created with a design that allows excellent traction power and self-cleaning of the tread, essential characteristics for off-road use. The grooves´ sculpture minimizes the retention of rocks and objects preventing damage to the tire. The VT850 tread has the M + S marking, that guarantees its high performance in severe weather conditions such as mud and snow. It also has a wear indicator, which indicates the exact moment it should be retreaded, keeping the casing intact and extending the tire's service life so that it can be retreaded as many times as possible while maintaining the required safety and quality standards.
Vipal NAFTA´s Commercial Manager, Gabriel Fuma, says that the tread has received positive reviews from all customers regarding this new product. “We have received excellent feedback from everyone who has equipped their vehicles with the VT850 tread. The tread proves, in practice, the excellent results it obtained during the tests. We are confident that it will be widely succesful in the American market due to the great performance it has been presenting”, Fuma said.
