Vipal Says New VT850 Offers Excellent Traction
Vipal Rubber Corp. has launched its new VT850 tread, which has been developed for vehicles like graders and loaders, plus "traction vehicles" that operate off-road, according to Vipal officials.
Available in the United States, the VT850 "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" and the tread carries the M+S marking for enhanced performance in snow and mud conditions.
It also features a wear indicator, which shows "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."
Gabriel Fuma, commercial manager for Vipal's NAFTA region, says the company has received "excellent feedback from everyone who has equipped their vehicles with the VT850 tread. We are confident that it will be widely successful in the American market due to the great performance it has been presenting."
