Carlisle TyrFil: New name for Accella Tire Fill Systems

Carlisle Construction Materials has changed the name of its polyurethane tyre fill business from Accella Tire Fill Systems to Carlisle TyrFil. The retitling brings the name of the business, which Carlisle acquired as part of its purchase of the Accella Performance Materials family of companies in November 2017, in line with the business’s original and best-known product range.

Carlisle describes TyrFil as “the leading global tyre flatproofing solution for the off-the-road equipment marketplace.” The polyurethane tyre fill material for flatproofing tyres was introduced in 1971 and is today sold in over 65 countries.

TyrFil flatproofing, the flagship product line, is used predominately in off-the-road applications where terrain and working conditions can be highly hazardous to heavy equipment tyres. Carlisle’s sustainable polyurethane tyre fill technology ensures that this essential equipment remains flat-free, helping to mitigate operational downtime in mining, waste management, construction sites and other similar work environments where equipment is especially prone to dangerous and costly tyre punctures.

According to Carlisle, the TyrFil brand has become “virtually synonymous with polyurethane tyre fill flatproofing” over the past four plus decades because of the “world-class elastomer science and R&D” behind the technology.

“TyrFil flatproofing and its accompanying line of tyre productivity products delivers the superior performance that our worldwide network of OEMs, aftermarket tyre dealers, and global distributors have come to expect,” adds Mike Arnold, vice president and general manager of Carlisle TyrFil. “We’re pleased to have these marquee offerings now under the Carlisle umbrella, and this name change completes the evolutionary process to incorporate TyrFil into the Carlisle family of companies. The new name will also help us to extend Carlisle branding to reach new global markets, while further supporting our company’s aim to better serve our growing base of customers within this sector.

“TyrFil will remain the same excellent product that our dealer-customers and suppliers have relied upon for decades to safeguard and protect their OTR equipment and operators,” continues Arnold. “TyrFil performs better than solid aperture tyres and offers a smoother, safer flatproofed ride, which can extend the life of equipment and guard against potential health risks for equipment operators. As part of the Carlisle network, we will continue to deliver the industry a superior polyurethane tyre fill offering, along with our manufacturer’s commitment to be the only global tyre fill provider in the industry that seamlessly integrates manufacturing, technical service, and sales support capabilities all under one roof.”

Carlisle points out that there are no changes in product formulation or effectiveness planned with the change in name.
