MIX100: excellence in the on/off segment
Thursday, November 22, 2012

Marangoni Retreading Systems, constantly pursuing the challenge of technological development and striving to anticipate the needs of the tyre retreading market, has decided to design and manufacture a new generation ring, the MIX100, combining the evolution in the truck sector with on/off road requirements.

The MIX100 profile is designed to meet the needs of users in the on/off segment, who require high mileage at sustained speeds, so as to reduce travel time between quarry and site, and who demand maximum traction and grip on all surfaces from their tyres. As a consequence, the tyres developed for this segment need to minimise vehicle downtime, as well as guarantee high mileage and excellent traction.

MIX100 is an original Marangoni pattern designed for use on drive axles on vehicles operating in mixed road/quarry applications, with a high percentage of use on especially demanding surfaces.

This directional tread pattern features a variable block arrangement to ensure excellent traction on any type of surface; specifically, the square tread profile means an exceptionally wide footprint that maximises grip on the road.

The wide opening of the shoulders ensures the tread is constantly kept “clean” of any stones, mud and water; this function is further enhanced by the rotation direction of the pattern and the specially-angled grooves that facilitate the expulsion of debris, consequently lowering the risk of the tread tearing.

The extensive reinforcing bridges on the central and side ribs provide resistance to impact and chafing in the centre and on the sidewalls, as well as stability on soft ground (mud) and resistance to very aggressive road surfaces (stones/rocks).

Other features of the pattern include its exceptional sturdiness in the most demanding conditions (on mud, rocks and with heavy loads) and reduced risk of penetration by sharp bodies due to the reinforced cushion gum.

The profile has variable-sized shoulder blocks to ensure low noise when driving on roads.

The tread is made using a superior compound - the result of new technology - that ensures both extraordinary robustness and exceptional resistance to stretching. This increased elongation capacity means the tread can better withstand fragmentation/propagation of tears or cuts caused by stones and debris. The low hysteresis compound guarantees longer tread life in heavy duty conditions and excellent mileage.

RINGTREAD is the only retreading system that uses joint-free precured rings that adhere to the casing without tension or deformation of the tread pattern, ensuring excellent traction on demanding surfaces, thanks to the greater precision and directional stability of the siping and blocks.
