Goodyear expands DuraSeal applications
Feb 1, 2007 12:00 PM
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co plans to expand its self-sealing commercial tire technology to include more mixed-service tires for vehicles that require maximum off-road traction. DuraSeal Technology will be available in Unisteel G177 severe-service drive tires.
Goodyear G177's aggressive tread design helps provide superb off-road traction. The tire also features high-tear strength tread compound to help resist rubber chipping and chunking. An enhanced casing design helps improve strength, puncture-resistance, and retreadability.
The technology helps seal tread-area punctures up to ¼" diameter when they occur. Previously only offered in Unisteel G287 MSA and G288 MSA mixed-service tires, the technology allows tires to remain in service. They can be retreaded and retain sealing effectiveness.
