Marangoni Retreading Systems has recently completed the process of upgrading and extending its range of PRL, PRL Kontur and Unitread cold precured flat and concave strips; the simplifications introduced have moreover allowed publication of one new product catalogue only, covering all three lines.
This rationalisation has not only allowed some overlaps between products with substantially similar characteristics to be eliminated, but has also improved satisfaction for European retreaders, with the entire range now available both in the 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, United Kingdom.
The current range of strips comprises both premium products – the PRL and Kontur profiles – and price-oriented products in the Unitread line.
This means a complete range for every user segment in Europe, with the following unique features:
– PRL is the range of full-custom traditional precured tread strips: these are in fact cut to measure based on tyre size, saving time for the retreader and creating less wasted material. Combining advanced patterns with tread depths similar to those of equivalent new tyres, and the latest generation compounds, PRL strips are suitable for retreading very high quality casings, ideal for particularly demanding customers.
– PRL Kontur is the range of concave strips with wings, whose profile adapts perfectly to the shape of the casing. The line is perfect for high quality retreading in specific segments, such as super-singles and bus tyres.
– Unitread is the range of flat strips for quality retreading in applications where the price-to-performance ratio is especially important. The Unitread range is moreover 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 profile is designed for use on the drive axles of light or medium-weight trucks doing deliveries over short distances.
It is an all-season pattern whose characteristics make it especially suitable for winter use: the numerous transversal grooves in fact ensure exceptional grip on more slippery roads, as well as good traction on both dry and wet surfaces. Available in sizes from 180 mm to 220 mm.
