After a lengthy period of global product development efforts, Bridgestone has introduced the company’s MasterCore off-the-road (OTR) tire line to offer mines customized tire performance.
The MasterCore product line, which features a new casing design for greater durability and enhanced productivity, is launching initially with 63-in. tires. Additional patterns and sizes will be available to customers in 2021.
MasterCore tires, the company said, have been engineered with steel cord and metal surface coating technology for improved adhesion between the rubber and steel cord. They also feature anti-rust steel cord that it has developed and manufactured to give added moisture resistance.
New rubber compounds in the product permit improved crack propagation on MasterCore tires, and an enhanced casing results in a more dependable performance. Additionally, new patterns and features reduce tire operating temperature for better performance.
