Continental has released an updated ContiPT18 press-on-band tyre for material handling equipment.

The new model features tread wear indicators that show when the tread no longer meets the minimum depth. 

Used primarily in intralogistics, the tyres are designed for indoor and outdoor use on any surface. All ContiPT18 tyres are also available in non-marking versions.

“Thanks to the modern tyre compounds we use, heat generation is low while wear resistance is high,” says Matthias-Stephan Müller, product manager for material handling tyres at Continental Specialty Tires. 

“This results in high mileage combined with low rolling resistance. The tread provides grip and optimised transmission of lateral forces, even with heavy loads.” 

In addition to the standard sizes, Continental says eight new tyre sizes will be available from the second quarter of next year.
