Vipal Rubber has launched its DV-RT5 tread featuring a new rubber compound.
By the end of 2022, the DV-RT5 will be available in 234, 242, 250, 258 and 266mm widths through Vipal Authorised Network partner retreaders. According to the company, the design features a unique compound that is more resistant to cracking and offers proven higher mileage performance. Designed with transversal blocks that provide improved traction power and favor the distribution of torque, the DV-RT5 also has ties between the blocks for better balance and stability.
The DV-RT5’s design features self-cleaning grooves and a closed central rib, which offers casing protection and a greater contact area with the road. It also has the M+S marking, noting its ability to improve performance in mud and snow conditions. The tread was designed to provide traction in all conditions.
The DV-RT5 was designed with resistance and mileage performance in mind. The compound used in the tread provides better resistance against abrasion; the bigger ties maintain the integrity of the product in harsh conditions and ensure uniform wear until the end of the tire’s service life.
Gilson Dugno, international sales manager for Vipal, said, “It is a project that was developed with great care from the design and formulation of the compound to the architecture of the blocks and other elements to meet the demands of our partners retreaders, who know what transporters on the road need. That’s why the mileage performance and resistance characteristics are so fundamental, which we were able to achieve with this new tread.”
