KRAIBURG Optimises Pattern Programme

KRAIBURG Austria has announced the release of its new Pattern programme for 2019/20.

New Product Catalogue Now Available

The revised KRAIBURG Pattern Programme 19/20 enables retreaders to choose their optimum tread pattern option over 38 pages – guaranteed by the clear presentation of all the important details: Product line, i.e. K_base, K_tech or K_plus, core range with width and length specifications, axle position and, of course, recommendation for use. The title page of the Pattern Programme shows the K228, one of the top sellers from the KRAIBURG range. This is described together with another 20 treads, subdivided into Bus, Mixed Application, Trailer and Traction, right at the beginning. Of course, key new products such as the K718 traction design and the K818 long-distance design are also included. After the top sellers, three patterns per page are presented. The Pattern Programme 19/20 includes a total of 51 treads for all conceivable applications and in all available variants and widths.

“At the request of our customers, we have separated our best sellers from the overall view and now present these individually on one page each in detail and with additional information about fuel efficiency as well as winter suitability and handling on wet roads,” Christoph Priewasser, Product Manager at KRAIBURG Austria explained.

A green fuel pump symbolises the fuel efficiency, a snowflake or rain cloud the performance on wet and wintry roads. In addition, there are five coloured “K”’s which, like a hotel classification, allow an uncomplicated estimation from “top” to “not recommended. A coloured bar system also indicates the extra mileage that a K_plus design brings in comparison with a K_base or K_tech pattern. The colour coding corresponds to the familiar blue, green and yellow.

“Offering the best possible service has been our aspiration for more than 60 years,” Holger Düx, Head of Sales Retreading Materials at KRAIBURG Austria added. “With the annual optimisation of our pattern programme, we continuously pursue this philosophy. The current edition ensures even more efficient handling for our partners and their customers. And hopefully guarantees us all the best possible use of our cold retread quality patterns.” The KRAIBURG Pattern Programme 19/20 is now available and can be downloaded from the web site at
