Continental introducing ‘Port Plus’ compound into harbour tyre range
A new compound has been developed for Continental tyres that will see use in harbourside applications. Continental calls this compound Port Plus, and reports that it reduces tyre heat generation, minimises wear and extends tyre life significantly. The Port Plus compound will premiere at TOC Europe in Rotterdam next month.
Commenting on Port Plus, Julian Alexander, product line manager material handling at Continental CST, said: “We have been running on site tests at our customers over the last year and have seen cases where the tyre life even doubled.”
