Continental Tire the Americas LLC has enhanced its materials handling tire portfolio with its updated ContiPT18 solid tire.
The new tire features a tread wear indicator that provides information about the condition of the tire and indicates when the tread no longer meets the minimum depth and can be seen on both sidewalls of the tire.
"With the new ContiPT18, we have developed a tire that not only offers outstanding performance and energy efficiency but also contributes to greater operating safety and efficiency,” says Matthias-Stephen Müller, product manager for materials handling tires at Continental Specialty Tires.
All ContiPT18 tires are available in non-marking versions.
Continental also announced eight new tire sizes in 2Q of 2024.
The ContiPT18 solid tire is used primarily in intralogistics and is designed for indoor and outdoor use on any surface.
“Thanks to the modern tire compounds we use, heat generation is low while wear resistance is high,” says Müller.
