Off the road tire and rubber track reinforcement in mining

Off the road tire and rubber track reinforcement in mining
Off the road (OTR) mining equipment often work in very harsh conditions due to climates, bad road surfaces and heavy payloads. Off road tires and rubber tracks are the first contact with the road surface of a mine. This is critical to guarantee that your rolling equipment is operational at all times. 
The expectations of the end-user are high: long lifetime, even at high speeds and payloads, strong traction, riding comfort with limited wear, better fuel consumption, greater resistance to puncture or cut and on-site repair, retread and recycle service.

These expectations are best met with a radial OTR tire or steel cord reinforced rubber track.
