    Roadone QA919 Tyre for Tough Mining Environment

  Kitar Teliti Sdn Bhd, the sole distrib- utor of Roadone tyres in Malay- sia, has brought in the Roadone
QA919 tyre that is designed specially to meet the needs of the mining industry.
“Featuring a unique transverse and lon- gitudinal groove design with widened and deepened tread pattern, the QA919 could handle the harsh road condition of unpaved and mixed surfaces as well as low slopes. Although it is an all-position tyre for short-medium distance heavy load truck, it is recommended mostly for the drive position,” said General Manager Johnson Goh.

Other features, he continued, included the zero-degree cap ply, reinforced cas- ing, extra thick sidewall and thickened bottom groove design that contributed to the tyre’s blowout and puncture resist- ance on unpaved roads. Low heat rubber compound for soft mining surfaces was said to provide low heat build-up and bet-       - tively reduce shoulder/crown separation.
