Founded in 1976 and listed on the Shanghai Stock exchange in September 2016, Triangle Tyre Co., Ltd is among the largest tyre manufacturers in the world and is the 4th largest worldwide for Off-The Road tyres. R.H. Claydon was established in 1953, and has been servicing the tyre industry ever since, it is the official distributor of Triangle Off-The Road tyres in the United Kingdom.
RH Claydon and Triangle Tyre welcomed visitors to their stand, showcasing popular patterns from the wide range available from the Chinese OTR manufacturer. Tyres on show included the 750/65R25 TB598S E4 radial tyre for articulated dump trucks, designed for exceptional traction and reliability.
The combination of a deep tread pattern and the new wear-resistant formula system prolongs the service life and improves the puncture resistance of the product, thus increasing the production efficiency.
Visitors to the stand could also view the 20.5R25 and 23.5R25 TB516 L3/E3, versatile radial tyres engineered for ATDs, loaders and bulldozers.
The TB516 pattern plays a crucial role in helping end-users traverse the most demanding terrains. The casing construction with enhanced impact and cut resistance support allows users to maintain a high level of productivity.
Also on display was the 20.5R25 TL538S+ L5, engineered to be a long-lasting and rugged solution for wheel loaders and bulldozers.
The tyre features an extra deep, open lug L5 traction pattern with staggered tread blocks for outstanding traction and ground contact.
Designed to provide stability in severe off-road applications, the TL538S+ also offers excellent grip, powerful traction, and outstanding cutting resistance in harsh environments.
