MARATHON Tyres will launch a puncture-resistant rubber tyre lining, and a new range of rims and wheels, on Stand 4318 at AIMEX 2007.
The company recently purchased the RL division of Hutchinson Industries (US), and is setting up a new manufacturing plant in Newcastle to manufacture its reusable rubber liner insert. This is designed to stop punctures and the associated downtime, and provides added safety for tyres used underground.
The product will be marketed globally, with dealers already appointed in the USA, South Africa, and Canada. The fully forged and machined rims and wheels that Marathon Tyres is introducing will cover 49”- 63” in standard or vertical mount options.
