A leader like Vipal Rubber knows that its products are constantly being evaluated in the most diverse markets in which it operates.
However, when the results of these tests come spontaneously, it is even better, as they help to prove the superior quality of the brand. That is what has happened with Power Retreads, a retreader based in Hastings, New Zealand, who tested Vipal's vulcanised blocks, which are used to retread tyres on fertilizer spreaders in the relugging process.

The added benefit for this is that can be used to spread fertilizers on grass paddocks, on flat and hilly terrain. "The tests carried out on Vipal's relugged tyres, both on the rear and front axles, have shown excellent performance," Leicester added, happily. He explained that the tyres provide good traction both uphill and downhill on slick grassy surfaces as, “They have also had good mileage performance on the road compared to new tyres.” Finally, he reported that drivers, who at first feared that the vehicle would vibrate said that “the truck works well and they are very happy with the performance of Vipal's relugged tyres.....”

一个像Vipal橡胶那样的领袖知道，其产品将会不断地在其营运的多元化市场中被评估。然而，当这些测试的结果是自发的，那就更好了，因为它们将证实该品牌的卓越性品质。位于新西兰哈斯丁（Hastings）的翻胎业者 Power Retreads，测试了Vipal的硫化块状花纹。该花纹在翻新过程中用于肥料撒播机的翻新轮胎上。作为伙伴，他们获得了全面的认可，Power Retreads董事莱斯特（Dave Leicester）表示，相较于全新的轮胎，这款刚翻新轮胎的里程数改善了53%。
