Rovereto, Italy – Marangoni Retreading Systems has upgraded and extended its range of PRL, PRL Kontur and Unitread cold precured flat and concave strips.
This rationalisation removes some overlaps between products and means the complete range is now available in two central stores – Henstedt-Ulzburg in Germany and Ferentino in Italy – as well as in the “peripheral locations” of Izmir, Turkey and Stoke-on-Trent, UK.
PRL is the range of full-custom traditional precured tread strips – cut to measure based on tire size, “saving time for the retreader and creating less wasted material”.
PRL Kontur is for concave strips with wings, whose profile adapts to the shape of the casing. The line is for “high quality” retreading in specific segments, such as super-singles and bus tires.
Unitread includes flat strips for quality retreading in applications where the “price-to-performance ratio is especially important”. It is “ideal in warmer regions and for retreading casings that undergo less stress”.
Finally, the range of PRL strips has recently been extended with the introduction of a new pattern, MS101L.
This is designed for use on the drive axles of light or medium-weight trucks doing deliveries over short distances. It is also an all-season pattern suitable for winter use.
