Linglong Tire successfully tests 3D printed tire

LinkedIn +

Linglong Tire and Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) have jointly developed and tested a tire built using 3D printing technology.

The tire is made from thermoplastic polyurethane, which has a greater resistance to heat build-up compared to traditional rubber and therefore provides a lower rolling resistance. It is also said to be safe and durable and extremely environmentally friendly as waste tires can be easily recycled. The manufacturing process is also simple.

In the future, Linglong Tire will continue to accelerate the development of high-performance green tires.
