New Speedy RFID unit lives up to its name
Patch Rubber Co. has developed the Speedy RFID (radio-frequency identification) unit. It can be installed in minutes chemically to the tire sidewall without buffing the surface, according to the company.
“As RFID begins to launch with the major tire manufacturers, there will be a demand for post cure RFID units," says Robbie Bushnell, key accounts sales manager.
"The propriatery compound allows our units to be installed on the outside sidewall without buffing. Without the need to buff, installation time is greatly reduced, and RFID units can be installed without removing the tire from the rim or vehicle.”
Speedy RFID units are available for outside sidewall application; a Speedy Core unit is available for green tire manufacturing. As a custom manufacturer, Patch Rubber has the capability of installing other RFID tags into the Speedy outside sidewall or green tire units.
Patch Rubber Co., a subsidiary of Myers Industries Inc., manufactures and supplies a comprehensive range of tire repair and retread products for the automotive, truck, and OTR aftermarket in the United States. For more information, visit www.patchrubber.com.
