Vipal Rubber Presents VT850 Tread to American market


Vipal Rubber has expended its range of products for the North American market with the addition of the new VT850 tread, which has been developed for heavy work with vehicles such as motorgraders, wood grabber loaders and traction vehicles for off-road applications.

New Vipal Tread for Off-Road Applications

This new product was created with a design that allows excellent traction power and self-cleaning of the tread. The grooves´ sculpture minimises the retention of rocks and objects, preventing damage to the tyre. The VT850 tread has the M + S marking as well as a wear indicator, which indicates the exact moment the tyre should be retreaded, keeping the casing intact and extending the tyre's service life so that it can be retreaded as many times as possible while maintaining the required safety and quality standards.

According to Vipal NAFTA´s Commercial Manager, Gabriel Fuma, the tread has received positive reviews from the market regarding the new product.

“We have received excellent feedback from everyone who has equipped their vehicles with the VT850 tread,” Fuma said. “The tread proves, in practice, the excellent results it obtained during the tests. We are confident that it will be widely successful in the American market due to the great performance it has been presenting.”
