Hudson, Colorado -- Magnum D'Or Resources, Inc., a rubber solutions company, has announced that its Next Generation SRI Custom Compound truck tyres have successfully passed the 2500 kilometre validation trials at the Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia.
The purpose of the trials, a 2 Feb Magnum statement said, was to establish the possibility of using â€œsubstantive recycled content in production OEM and replacement tyres without comprising performance and safety.â€ According to Magnum, the results of the test suggest that its SRI compounds may be able to provide manufacturers with recycled tyres that operate just as efficiently as virgin rubber tyres.
In the testing process, the SRI compound tyres were installed on the right rear axles of light trucks to test performance and wear resistance over an initial distance of 2500 km. Several further tests will analyse the tyres performance over a total of 30 000 km - representing the average operating life of a truck tyre, the statement said. Magnum said that initial results suggest that there are a limited number of difference between its SRI compound tyres and tyres produced with original virgin rubber.
The company said it will repeat the testing process several times over the next year to establish performance levels in different variants of compounds, tyre types and applications.
