Bandag Inc. has rolled out two new tread products molded from what it calls a revolutionary new group of compounds, dubbed the Longeviti Series, that the company says will increase tread life by as much as 20%.
The BDM (Bandag Drive Mixed) and BRM (Bandag All-Position Mixed) treads were developed for refuse and construction applications. They are designed to deliver increased tread life in on- and off-road conditions.
BDM is described as excellent for use on drive positions of vehicles driven in mud and snow in severe climates, while the BRM tire is appropriate for all-position use in on/off-road and P&D applications in milder climates.
Both treads fit most tire sizes used on construction and waste vehicles, including 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 3415/80R22.5. Bandag says that on- and off-road testing indicates the new products will last up to 20% longer without sacrificing cut resistance.
