PETLAS BELIEVES THAT THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURAL TIRES WIIL BE DRIVEN BY HIGH FLEXION TECHNOLOGY

To meet the changing demands and comply with the new production methods and trends, new and heavier machinery are introduced to the agriculture market every day.

The ongoing change in the agricultural business landscape necessitates tire manufacturers to introduce solutions to emerging challenges.

Petlas Tire Corp., the leading agricultural tire producer of Turkey keeps fulfilling the needs of its customers from all around the world by keeping up with the latest developments in the industry. For the company, IF (Improved Flexion) and VF (Very High Flexion) tires will be the main factor that will define the future of agricultural machinery industry.

“The importance of long term yield is being highlighted more than ever now”, says Oguz Ay, International Sales and Marketing Director of Petlas, “protecting the soil along with the roots and seeds has recently become the primary function of agricultural tires. This, in turn, improves the long term yield of farmers and ensures a better return on investment.”

Petlas offers 2 different size of IF tires with the company’s acclaimed agricultural radial pattern, TA130: 600/70 R30 and 800/70 R38 These tires are specifically developed to protect what really matters for the farmers and they offer the benefits of IF technology by providing a way larger footprint compared to traditional tires, which translates into less soil compaction and a better protection of the soil. TA130 IF series achieve this by carrying the same amount of load with up to 25% less pressure. Besides, they increase the contact area of the tire and thus, significantly improve traction and drag force. In addition to providing outstanding performance without compromising the good condition of the soil and the produce, TA130 IF series also ensure stability during operations where precision really matters. As a part of the company’s ongoing investments in this technology, Petlas has begun working on developing four new IF (Improved Flexion) sizes: 650/60R34, 650/65R34, 710/75R42 and 650/85 R38.

Petlas’ Very High Flexion (VF) radial trailer tire HLT-45 on the other hand, proves capable of carrying 40% more load with the same pressure, compared to traditional tires. This capability means extraordinary levels of fuel efficiency as it drops the number of transportation cycles drastically. Another feature that the users will benefit is that VF tires remove the need to change the pressure of the tires while moving from the field to the road as they can operate with much higher speeds than ordinary tires with the same pressure. With literally no need to change the pressure, users will gain a lot of extra time to dedicate to produce or carry more and more crop. With the strong carcass and reinforced sidewalls, HLT-45 ensures a long service life to offer maximum value for the farmers’ investments. Petlas currently offers one size for this tire, 285/70 R19.5 and the company’s short term plan is to broaden the VF tire range by adding in the following new sizes: 380/90R46, 480/80R42, 480/80 R46, 520/85 R46, 480/80 R50 and 710/70 R42.

Petlas produces tires for passenger cars, SUV/4x4 vehicles, light trucks, trucks and buses, agricultural and industrial vehicles, military aircrafts and land vehicles for more than 40 years of experience. In the company’s production facility which is built on 2 million m2, more than 3800 employees are working towards Petlas’ vision to be the choice of the next generation by remaining a global brand with a high emphasis on safety, environmental awareness and economy.
