PRL will present two revolutionary new measurement methods for prediction of tire wear properties on a laboratory scale. These have been successfully implemented in testing instruments and results correlated with field data. The first characterizes dynamic wear, known as chip and cut behavior, and the second – called the intrinsic strength tester – determines rubber resistance against crack initiation and penetration by sharp objects. Both systems are fully automated and provide quantitative, precise and reproducible results.
