Global Rubber Industries (GRI) has announced that the company will showcase its latest specialty tires at INTERMAT Paris from 23 to 28 April in France.
The GRI display in stand 5A C 058 will showcase the company’s latest material handling tire (Globestar WT), construction tires (Gripex and Gripxlr) and skid steer tires (XPTSS and XPT). These new tires lines are designed to provide longer running hours, extensive tire life and superior performance.
The Globestar Wide Tread (WT) universal solid tire was conceptualized and developed by observing the market and listening to customers. GRI found that the market had an increasing need for wide-tread tires to support the demands of high load carrying capacity, extensive tire life and enhanced stability. The wide-tread and flat crown radius is designed for maximum tire life. The deep lugs of Globestar WT serve to improve traction with high stability in normal working environments. The wide tread also prevents tire distortion while cornering. Globestar WT is built with natural-rubber compounds that ensure good resilience and high tensile strength.
GRI’s Gripex construction tires provide outstanding machine stability in demanding operations. The unique hook tread pattern dramatically increases traction. The specially designed heat dissipating notch maximizes surface exposure so that heat generated inside can easily dissipate to the outside, thereby enhancing the runtime and durability of the tire. The self-cleaning terrace continuously keeps the tire clean of mud and dirt and makes the machine more efficient on energy.
The XPT SS premium plus tire is developed for demanding use on skid-steer loaders. It is designed with extra deep directional tread and curved lugs that provide excellent traction and durability. It also features an extra thick sidewall, aiding in reducing stress cracking. The XPT SS is built with advanced cut and chip resistance natural rubber compound offering maximum tire life.
