Continental Upgrades Compound on Solid Tire Lineup
Continental AG has updated its solid tire offerings with a new Plus compound that combines the perks of high mileage with low rolling resistance. The SC20+, CS20+, CSEasy SC20+ and SH12+ tires represent a more streamlined line of products. “Thanks to the Plus compound, customers will not have to choose between the SC20 Energy+ and SC20 Mileage+ in the future”, says Julian Alexander, product line manager for material handling at Continental Commercial Specialty Tires. “We have also been able to significantly improve the successors of the CS20, CSEasySC20 and SH12 in terms of tire life, particularly in an external environment."
The tires have been available since January 2018, the company says.
The SC20+ model combines the advantages of its predecessors, and with the Plus compound, the tires offer higher mileage like the SC20 Mileage+ with low rolling resistance like the SC20 Energy+. As a result, Continental says service and maintenance costs as well as energy use can be reduced. The SC20+ is especially useful on uneven surfaces such as paving slabs or cobble stone pavement.
The profile design offers high traction, while the tread provides maximal resistance capability to punctures and cuts thanks to the compound. This reduces wear and extends tire life. This tire is suited to intensive use in both indoor and outdoor environments.
The closed flanks on the CS20+ minimize vibrations and ensure quiet running to the highest degree possible. The continuous tread blocks prevent tread slippage and offer good lateral stability road contact points on which bends, tight turning circles and turning maneuvers are often carried out. Thanks to the new compound, the tire also offers higher mileage. This tire is designed for use in warehouses and other areas of application with hard and even surfaces requiring maneuverability.
Continental CSEasy SC20+
The CSEasy SC20+ model not only offers all the advantages of the SC20+ thanks to its special adapter, but also permits easy installation with the help of a hex key. This eliminates the need for external installation services, leading to a reduction of time and costs.
Both the new Plus compound and the adapter also ensure less tire heat buildup during use. This contributes to making the CSEasy SC20+ more resistant and durable. The new compound improves tire rolling resistance and increases mileage, making this tire a good choice for heavy-duty use in interior and exterior environments.
The new compound makes the SH12+ more durable, the company says. The treadless slick tire offers comfort, convenience and a high resistance capability against cut and tear damage from external objects. It is designed for indoor use, particularly on hard and smooth driving surfaces.
Continental plans to showcase these new tires at Hannover Messe, ather than at CeMat. The products will be on display in Hall 5, Stand E18 from April 23 to 27.
