I-Reach passenger car sealant tyre are available from 13 to 22 inches.
Joining Chengdu International Trade Fair for Automotive Parts and Aftermarket Services (CAPAS) for the first time, Wuxi I-Reach Technology Co Ltd highlighted its sealant tyre and related technologies.
“We started as Michelin’s raw material supplier before we ventured into developing sealant tyre. I-Reach Technology was established in 2012 and since then, road safety has always been at the core of the company,” said Vice General Manager Xu Jin Hu.
With a research and development (R&D) team made up of the most capable and experienced professionals from the Military Research Institute, the company’s 5 years of efforts finally paid off with the new 4th generation i-sealing technology. Leveraged on the globalisation supply chain, R&D capability as well as the utilisation of Michelin and Bridgestone’s co-line production tyres, the company claimed that it had given tyres a new value and life with its 4th generation i-sealing technology.
Inside every I-Reach sealant tyre, Xu said, was an MPN self-sealing coating, which could withstand high temperatures up to 170◦C and low temperature down to -40 ◦C. The coating would seal small holes caused by sharp objects up to 6mm diameter.
“It was tested and proven that our i-sealing technology coating could seal a wound in the tread area up to 10cm to avoid tyre burst. In short, our sealant tyre is quiet, helps to reduce vibration and prevents sudden air loss of pressure to ensure safe journey.”
Xu revealed that the company had an average yearly output of one million tyres. The company also supplied Original Equipment (OE) tyres to Dongfeng and FAW in China.
“Although we cover from motorcycle, passenger car, new energy vehicle, truck and bus to military vehicle, passenger car sealant tyre still contribute significantly to our total sales. Sizes are available from 13 to 22 inches.”
Through a variety of product demonstrations, interactive presentations and games during the show, the company explained how its sealant tyres could enhance road safety by preventing tyre damage, especially when driving over sharp debris at high speeds.
