May 1, 2018

Company presented solutions for the vehicle tire retreads that serve the solid waste collection chain in the United States.


Vipal Rubber was one of the highlights of WasteExpo 2018, which took place on April 23-26 in Las Vegas, United States. During the three day event, Vipal's booth received managers from several companies interested in getting to know and acquiring the company's new technologies, including VT200 and VZY2, rolling treads indicated for tires used for road load transportation and mixed surfaces, respectively.


Among the attendees that visited Vipal’s booth at the trade show were White’s Tire’s representatives, Vipal’s authorized retreader for the North Carolina region, in addition to Vipal’s distributor in Canada, MGTread. “For the second year in a row, we gathered the best solutions Vipal has to benefit the solid waste collection chain in the United States.


Both treads we showed this time are helping to reduce fuel expenses and considerably improving the yield of garbage trucks”, explains Gabriel Fuma, Vipal’s Commercial Manager in the United States, who was together with Vipal’s Technical and Commercial Representatives, Leonardo Oliveira and Amaramh Velazquez, and the NAFTA regional manager, Antonio Brito.


VT200 is Vipal’s rolling tread with cross-cut blocks to provide excellent drive power. The design of the grooves is made to minimize rocks and objects embedded in the tread. Its characteristic design enables self-cleaning of the tread, and it is indicated for road load transportation. VZY2 is indicated for radial tires and trailer axle or drive, used on mixed surfaces (road and off-road), showing optimal adherence on different surfaces and less rocks embedded in the tread.
