Nokian extends Aramid technology usage
Nokian Tyres has extended its Aramid Sidewall technology to van and campervan tyres. The technology, containing durable aramid fibre, was designed to bring added durability for challenging conditions.
“We want to offer van and campervan drivers the same durability that the users of our SUV and LT tyres are already receiving. In addition to protecting against surprising additional costs caused by tyre damage, Aramid fibre also ensures that the cargo can reach its destination without trouble,” said Petri Niemi, Head of Product and Pricing Management, Nokian Tyres.
“Van and campervan tyres are often in hard use. The vehicles are heavy and they are often driven fully loaded on poor roads, on gravel and over kerbstones. The tyres must bear the entire weight of the vehicle and provide safe and stable handling under all conditions. The strong core of Aramid Sidewall technology is the Aramid fibre contained in the innovative sidewall structure. The same material is also utilised by the aerospace and defence industries. The aramid fibre reinforces the sidewall to even better withstand external impacts, cuts and depressions,” said the company.
