GUARANTEED ONE STEP WIDER
Carcasses of steering axle tires, especially with heavy shoulder abrasion or open shoulder décor, have a limited covering width after roughening compared to the drive tire. In cooperation with VMI-AZ, a technology has been developed that enables shoulder widening by up to 25 mm. This requires a CTC extruder with a K_wide expansion kit.
We have developed a special construction material for shoulder extension: AK01.
Only this material optimally combines the requirements of a standard binding rubber with those of shoulder construction, as required for the K_wide process. KRAIBURG AK01 build-up material is available in previous dimensions as a feeding strip and replaces the normal binding rubber for the CTC extruder even if no shoulder construction is carried out.
Extensive tests have confirmed
that cold-retreaded tires with K_wide Technology meet both the product testing specifications according to ECE-R 109 and the dynamic requirements in use.
Note: maximum installation width 25 mm
WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF K_WIDE TECHNOLOGY PRIMARILY FOR DRIVE TIRES OF THE FOLLOWING SIZES:
- 315/80 R22.5
- 315/70 R22.5
- 305/70 R22.5
- 295/80 R22.5
- 275/70 R22.5
