Kraiburg releases optimised 2019/20 pattern programme
Which pattern is most suitable for which application? The revised, 39-page Kraiburg Pattern Programme 2019/20 enables retreaders to choose the best retread thanks to its clear presentation of all important details: Product line (K_base, K_tech and K_plus), core range with width and length specifications, axle position and, of course, recommendation for use. Kraiburg says the programme begins with its top-selling K228 on the title page. This is joined by a further 20 popular treads, which are subdivided into Bus, Mixed Application, Trailer and Traction.
“At the request of our customers, we have separated our best sellers from the overall view and now present these individually on one page each in detail and with additional information about fuel efficiency as well as winter suitability and handling on wet roads,” explains Christoph Priewasser, product manager at Kraiburg Austria. A green fuel pump symbolises fuel efficiency and a snowflake or rain cloud performance on wet and wintry roads. In addition, one to five coloured K’s show at a glance, like a hotel classification, whether something is ‘top’ or ‘not recommended’. A blue, green or yellow coloured bar system also indicates the extra mileage that a K_plus design brings in comparison with a K_base or K_tech pattern.
The Pattern Programme 2019/20 includes a total of 51 treads for numerous applications as well as available variants and widths. Recent additions to the portfolio, the K718 traction and the K818 long-distance pattern, are also included. “Offering the best possible service has been our aspiration for more than 60 years,” says Holger Düx, head of sales, Retreading Materials at Kraiburg Austria. “With the annual optimisation of our pattern programme, we continuously pursue this philosophy. The current edition ensures even more efficient handling for our partners and their customers. And hopefully guarantees us all the best possible use of our cold retread quality patterns.” The latest Kraiburg pattern programme is now available and can be downloaded from the www.kraiburg-austria.com website.
