ROVERETO, Italy (June 3, 2016) — In response to an evolving retread market, Marangoni Tyre S.p.A. is accelerating production of its Blackline ultra-performance range of retread products and said it plans to expand the line.
Since its introduction to the market two years ago, Blackline has grown to account for 30-percent of all Ringtread rings sold, according to the company, and theline continues to see an increase in sales. Marangoni said Blackline products expand the utilisation of retreads to high performance areas, on extreme low-aspect ratio tires or tires in heavy duty applications, all of which previously have been underserved segments of the retread market.
At this time, Marangoni offers 13 Blackline tread patterns and has plans to roll out two additional patterns, the RTL FE trailer, and the RDL FE drive. Each of these are “intended for long continental routes and both characterized by excellent rolling resistance and durability,” according to the company.
