Polyurethane car tire meets FMV standards

Order Reprints

Amerityre Corp.'s polyurethane passenger tire complies with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 109, according to independent lab test results.

The standard covers bead unseating resistance, strength, endurance and high speed performance; defines tire load ratings; and specifies tire labeling requirements, among other areas.

"Passing the test requirements is the first credibility threshold Amerityre must cross before it can further advance its polyurethane tire technology," says Amerityre CEO and President Richard Steinke.

He adds that Amerityre "is well aware that additional testing will be required to demonstrate that the technology complies with the new standards under Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 139, when they take effect in 2007."
