WESTLAKE TYRES
Westlake provides tyres with longer mileage, greater retreadability, more durability and less fuel consumption, in one word, more value, to fleets in Europe. Given the extreme demands of today's transport industry, Westlake investment on continuous innovation in tyre technology is essential and helps the fleets who seek for tyre value and cost saving.

TYRE CONSTRUCTION
Compounds used in the tread depend on the tyre's specific need. WESTLAKE has various compunding strategies to minimise tyre treadwear and maximise traction, fuel efficiency and resistance to fatigue, chipping and scaling.

Tyre structure

BELT EDGE CUSHION
WESTLAKE tyres feature a belt edge cushion to help prevent separation of the belt edges and therefore the tread caused by the scissoring effect of the belts. (available for selected sizes and tread patterns only)
INNER LINER
WESTLAKE's inner liner is specially designed to maintain the air pressure of each tyre to avoid any possible tyre damage. The special inner liner compound ensures a significantly longer casing life.
BEAD FILLER
Two or more different compounds are used in WESTLAKE's bead filler to stiffen the bead for steering response and to control the flexibility of other parts of the tyre.
BELTS & CASING
Thin, highly adhesive assembly compounds are used in WESTLAKE's tyre casing and belts to improve the steel cords strength.<
UNDERTREAD
WESTLAKE's undertread compounds generate less heat in order to prevent tread separation.
SIDEWALL
WESTLAKE applies special sidewall compounds high flexibility, excellent durability and high resistance to fatigue and weather cracking.
RIM CUSHION
WESTLAKE's rim cushion compound is highly resistant to the heat brought by the heavy load or transmitted by the rim so as to extend the tyre life.
INFLATION/PRESSURE
Truck tyres for commercial vehicles must be properly inflated to a pressure based on the load, speed and conditions of use for maximum performance in all aspects such as even wear (long mileage), traction and handling stability (riding comfort) in addition to safety issues*.
* PRODUCT TECHNICAL DATA at page 23-24 Check WESTLAKE’s recommendations of this catalogue.

Tyre pressures should be checked on cold tyres at every two weeks, using a calibrated pressure gauge.Tyres with lower profiles must be checked strictly due totheir less visible sidewall deflection.
WESTLAKE provides inflation pressure stickers (shownas the right) with several different values for certainapplications to help customers maintain proper pressures. Please contact your WESTLAKE distributor for details
