Borex Launches New Treads


Borex, a brand of the Unique group, has expanded its range of treads with the addition of five new patterns, BXT5 L, BXL12, BXL1 A L and BXM1 L.

Five New Treads Released

Developed for vehicles with free and traction axles, the new treads are produced with rubber compounds that guarantee excellent mileage performance. They underwent rigorous tests in the laboratories of the company's industrial park, in São Leopoldo (RS), Brazil, equipped with the most modern equipment for testing elastomers, guaranteeing the quality and safety standards demanded by the market.

The BXT5 L is a light traction tread, suitable for road use and for medium and long distances. Already available in the Borex range in the 20mm option, it now offers more depth option. The BXL12 line brings a new design to expand the brand's portfolio for free axles for road vehicles. Also geared towards free axles, the BXL1 A L is the only tread on the market with a 10mm-deep flap, while the BXM1 L serves mixed axles and terrain, being a lighter option for the BXM1 family.
