Apollo Tyres has revamped its offering for the mining segment in India with the Introduction bias and radial tyres.
Apollo Tyres has revamped its offering for the mining segment in India with the introduction of EnduTuff Mining, an exclusive mining radial tyre, and Terra MT, a bias tyre.
Apollo EnduTuff Mining, with its superior performance qualities, is said to reduce downtime for customers and enhance their savings. The company claims that the EnduTuff Mining tyre presents a cost per kilometre advantage of above 40 per cent with superior life, puncture resistance, higher uptime along with the most durable casing and hence multiple retreads. These tyres are suited for mining applications where there is limited exposure to extremely rough terrain.
Produced at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Chennai, these tyres were developed for and tested extensively in the toughest of mines in India and Indonesia. The special compound with ‘unique blend’ of polymers and resins provides superior mileage while the anchored block shape ensures uniform loading and stable footprint in all loads for smooth wear. Specifically engineered belt configuration, thicker cushioning and body ply structure improve puncture resistance in mining applications.
Apollo Terra MT is a bias tyre for the mining segment of commercial vehicles. The company developed these tyres based on the inputs received from customers relating to casing durability. The Terra MT offers puncture resistance, resistance to chipping and chunking, higher initial tread mileage (ITM) and best-in-class retreadability.
The company says it spent 1000+ manhours in the development and testing of the Apollo Terra MT before launching it to customers. The new hybrid reinforcing technology in tread compound and distribution of more rubber mass on the wear zone are said to provide superior mileage. Engineered polymer blend in the sidewall of Apollo Terra MT makes it cut resistant and the increased shoulder gauge with stone protector protects the casing from external damages.
