What is a Tyre Protection Chain?
A Tyre Protection Chain (TPC) is a closed mesh of high alloy, hardened steel chains.
- These systems protect the tread and sidewalls of the tyres, and their flexible designs allow them to adjust to every deformation of the tyre.
- High levels of self-cleaning prevents tread mesh from becoming filled and clogged and provides for the best possible road holding and traction.
Why is a TPC important?
Sharp, jagged rocks and muddy and slippery surfaces are a significant hazard to tyres—even when they are new. Sudden tyre failure results in equipment downtime, loss of productivity, and delays in projects. Currently, there is no sign of an end to the worldwide earthmover tyre shortage, which fuels the escalation of tyre replacement costs. Premature deterioration of tyres is a costly inconvenience which can be minimised through the use of RUD TPC.
