Carlisle acquired Accella Tire Fill Systems as part of its purchase of the Accella Performance Materials family of companies in November 2017. TyrFil flatproofing, the flagship product line, is used predominately in (OTR) applications where terrain and working conditions can be highly hazardous to heavy equipment tires. The company says Carlisle’s sustainable polyurethane tire fill technology helps ensure that this equipment remains flat-free. The company says TyrFil flatproofing technology glides over typical workspace debris such as rocks, glass, nails, rebar and other sharp objects that would typically make the tires on large OTR vehicles highly vulnerable to deflation.
“TyrFil will remain the same excellent product that our dealer-customers and suppliers have relied upon for decades to safeguard and protect their OTR equipment and operators,” says Mike Arnold, vice president and general manager for Carlisle TyrFil. “TyrFil performs better than solid aperture tires and offers a smoother, safer flatproofed ride, which can extend the life of equipment and guard against potential health risks for equipment operators. As part of the Carlisle network, we will continue to deliver the industry a superior polyurethane tire fill offering, along with our manufacturer’s commitment to be the only global tire fill provider in the industry that seamlessly integrates manufacturing, technical service, and sales support capabilities all under one roof.”
Carlisle noted that there are no changes in product formulation or effectiveness planned with the change in name.
