Amerityre tests polyurethane tyre with auto companies
Boulder City, Nevada -- Amerityre Corp. has announced that it has completed the developmental phase of its non-pneumatic [no-air] temporary/spare passenger car tyre and is now in the process of delivering production quality prototype tyres to the automotive industry for additional testing and evaluation. The innovative tyres have successfully undergone FMVSS testing and can carry loads up to 900 kg per tyre.
According to Richard Steinke, Amerityre's president and chief executive officer, "the automotive industry evaluation phase is the next important step towards commercialising this technology. We now have a product that can cover the entire range of small to full size automobiles. We've had discussions with several interested car companies and they have been
anxiously waiting for samples. They will begin qualifying the tyres as
original equipment temporary/spare tyres right away," he added.
Amerityre said the manufacturing process for making the non-pneumatic temporary/spare tyre is unique because the polyurethane tyre is manufactured directly onto the car wheel.
