Hannover, germany--Continental has introduced two new construction tyres - the HSC+ and HDC+. Boasting a new tread compound with long polymer chains, these tyres are said to offer improved mileage performance, durability and better remoulding potential. As a result, the HSC+ and HDC+ are much more economical in combined on-/off-road use, says Conti.
Dr. Bernhard Trilken, head of Research & Development of Continental Vehicle Tyres at Continental, said: â€œLonger polymer chains in the tread compound intertwine more efficiently and make the tyre tougher with greater elasticity. Tears remain isolated and cannot penetrate into the tyre, which means tread breakages are minimised. As a result the casing is well protected and kept in good condition for remoulding. An additional benefit of the new compound is the improved wear resistance, which allows mileage performance to be increased significantlyâ€.
