Recently, on a nasty, rainy day, my wife's car sat in the garage with a flat tire, Refilling the tire with a portable air pump revealed that the tire had a sidewall
puncture--a thin shard of wire had lodged in the rubber, just above where the tire tread ended--there was no way to repair the tire with a standard type plug.
Something as simple as a sidewall
puncture on one of these specialty tires, caused by a rock or haul road debris, can temporarily take a critical and expensive operating asset out of use.
Provided is a pneumatic tire including a sidewall
and a carcass, the sidewall being produced from a rubber composition for a sidewall
which has a specific sulfur content, the carcass being produced from a carcass cord covered with a rubber composition for a carcass topping, and the sulfur contents of the rubber composition for a sidewall
and the rubber composition for a carcass topping satisfying a specific relationship.
Here we propose a novel approach to solve the band-to-band tunneling problem by introducing a sidewall
The bins feature free-span roofs in addition to a sidewall
system that incorporates a smooth inner wall sheet laminated to a corrugated outer wall sheet.
"We've done 70,000 boards and I've never seen a sidewall
crack," said Tracey.
Sensors are playing a big part in providing the tire industry with a sidewall
inspection system that can identify and measure bulges, dents, and depressions as small as a thousandth of an inch.
Highlights in the line include Celebration, a floral sidewall with shades of green and gold and a deep brick red on a cream-colored field; Sunsplashed, a sidewall
with a marbleized ground in a creamy, pale yellow, and Ironwork Filigree, an architectural scroll work design in such colors as deep plum, forest, sage and blue-grays.
The sidewall gum strip extends radially upward from a curved portion of the chafer, wherein the sidewall gumstrip is located axially between the at least one carcass ply turn-up end and a sidewall
Each of the tires comprises, in each sidewall, at least one additional layer of reinforcing elements forming with the circumferential direction an angle of between 20[degrees] and 60[degrees], the orientation of the reinforcing elements of the additional layer in a sidewall
being symmetrical to the orientation of the reinforcing elements of the additional layer in the other sidewall in relation to the equatorial plane, the angle formed by the plane comprising a reinforcing element of an additional layer with a radial plane comprising the radially inner end of said reinforcing element being oriented in the direction of rotation of the mounted assembly corresponding to the forward movement of the vehicle in the rear tire and in the opposite direction in the front tire.
The tie layer is capable of bonding the veneer to a sidewall
compound of a tire sidewall.
The presented method gives the possibility to measure mean values of the dimension of a sidewall
, as well as a tread at a defined position given by a laser trace.
inspection process must detect all suspect products such as bulges and dents, while minimizing false rejects or classifying a good tire as defective.
In many building systems today, the only builder intervention is in making a sidewall
or tread splice, if he is needed to do these.
This new polymer, in combination with appropriate blends of general purpose rubbers, gives a sidewall
composition to meet current and future tire performance requirements.
