Vipal Attends Latin Tyre Expo in Panama

Vipal in Panama



Vipal Rubber is attending another Latin Tyre Expo edition, considered one of the most important trade shows of the tire and retread segment in Latin America and the Caribbean, which will take place on June 6-8, at the Atlapa Convention Center in Panama.

Among the main Vipal Rubber booth highlights this year is the VT170, a tread with a special design to provide lower fuel consumption, within the most demanding standards. In addition to its low rolling resistance, which generates less heat and ensures less wear and tear on the casing, the VT170 also provides good braking performance on wet surfaces and greater abrasion resistance. The VL110L tread is indicated for radial tyres and trailer axles, with shoulders designed to reduce lateral drag effects. It also preserves casing integrity due to low rolling resistance and is recommended primarily for long-distance services on paved floors.

During the three-day event, several representatives of Vipal Rubber's subsidiaries in the region will be present, including Gabriel Fuma, Commercial Manager for North and Central America; Jean Barros, Commercial Manager for Mexico and Central America, and Jarry Soriano, Sales Representative for Vipal Rubber in Central America.

In this edition, Vipal Rubber will also present an overview of the tyre retread market in Latin America. “This is the fourth time we will speak at Latin Tyre Expo, a trade show that has contributed to boosting business, but above all, it is also an opportunity to showcase the importance of Vipal Rubber products and the advantages obtained from tyre retreading, considering each region's characteristics and needs,” says Jean Barros.
