Marangoni Retreading Systems has introduced the new RZ Fe 100 pattern to its range of Ringtread trailer rings. These are designed to be more durable for long-distance driving and the pattern is ideal particularly for intercity express coaches, drive axles on 6×2 units and twin trailer axles that require continuous high-speed operation.
The new tread, which has a depth of 14mm, provides increased rolling resistance. It has a non-directional, all-position pattern featuring four wide longitudinal grooves that provide directional stability and numerous cross sipes to ensure good traction on any type of surface and resistance to overheating. The groove depth and wave pattern reduces the risk of penetration by sharp objects such as stones, ensures good drainage of water and at the same time greatly reduces road noise.
According to Marangoni, 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.
